    The massive free-to-play combat game to launch with brand new content


    Hello everyone, this is TJ Wagner, Project Lead at Wargaming.net responsible for bringing World of Tanks to consoles. We’re all very excited to be bringing this massively multiplayer, action packed, 30-player tank battle sensation to PlayStation 4.

    World of Tanks is a free-to-play and free-to-win mega hit that’s easy to pick up and a challenge to master. There are over 350 tanks across seven nations to choose from and collect. There are five different classes of tanks to fit the style of play you like best and always hot heavy metal action to be found.

    We’re tuning the experience specifically for PlayStation 4, supporting Dualshock 4 controllers, Share Play, PS Vita Remote Play, livestreaming and more. Best of all, World of Tanks is free-to-play for all PlayStation account holders from the get go!

    [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    World of Tanks for PlayStation 4 will feature custom maps, custom tanks, custom skins and more. PS Plus members will have access to even more exclusive content and deals. We are also happy to announce that there will be exclusive Girls und Panzer content and themes at launch.

    I’d like to personally invite you to join the World of Tanks community. We value our players and work to bring a constant flow of new content and features every month for you to explore and play with. I can’t wait to see what the PlayStation community brings with their gameplay and ideas. I’d also like to invite you to be part of the beta in the coming months, helping us to tune and put the finishing touches to the game before launch. That will happen before the end of this year and you’ll receive special beta awards for participating.

    Again, I can’t tell you how excited we are to be bringing World of Tanks to a whole new audience. You can sign up for more information on the game and the upcoming beta at PS4.WorldofTanks.com.

    See you on the battlefield!

    For tanks, they spend quite a lot of time being airborn in that trailer... Would make more sense if it was about bikes or even planes, but it looks cool none the less :)

    World of Tanks open beta hits PS4 next month
    Start battling it out from 4th December – no sign-up necessary



    Hello again. TJ Wagner, Project Lead at Wargaming.net for World of Tanks on PS4 here with some great news. World of Tanks is holding an open beta weekend from 4th December through the 6th. No sign-ups are necessary, just download the game and start battling it out in 15v15 heavy metal tank battles!

    [​IMG]

    “What is World of Tanks?” you may be asking yourself. Well simply put, it’s the most successful tank actionMMOshooter out there and now it’s coming to PlayStation 4.

    You choose from a variety of tanks from different nations (ex. USA, Germany, Russia, etc.) to get started, and then hop into battle. Every match earns you rewards to upgrade your tanks and acquire new ones. You can also use these resources to customise your tanks with supplies, equipment, camos, emblems and inscriptions.

    [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG]

    There are five tank classes to choose from to fit your playing style, light scouts, medium brawlers, heavy monsters, tank destroyers and Artillery. You’ll play in 15 versus 15 multiplayer battles on dozens of maps from around the world. Fight it out in lush jungles, barren deserts, dense cities and more.

    World of Tanks is completely free-to-play, it costs nothing to check it out and nothing to reach the furthest point in the game. There’s no pay-to-win here as all premium items are cosmetic or help you earn experience faster.

    All your progress in the open beta will carry over into the full game when it releases so get a head start on your friends while you can, they’ll surely be playing World of Tanks.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    As a bonus, we’re giving away an exclusive PlayStation 4 premium tank with a PlayStation inspired skin just for downloading the game. Play during the open beta weekend and we’ll award you with a second premium tank with a custom emblem. This free premium tank, the M22 Locust, is one of my all-time favorite American Scout tanks and I’m excited to have you try it out.

    World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 will continue to have exclusives at launch, like custom and earnable free Girls und Panzer content (hint, think tank). There will be two PlayStation 4 exclusive maps at launch including the biggest map ever made for World of Tanks.

    [​IMG]

    It doesn’t stop there either as we’re supporting the game with HUGE monthly releases of more maps and tanks. To learn more about World of Tanks on PlayStation 4, head over to ps4.worldoftanks.com and sign up. We will send you regular updates about World of Tanks on PS4, including game tips and further announcements regarding the beta and release.

    It’s hard to believe the open beta is launching in just two short weeks. Mark your calendars and I’ll see you on the Battlefield in World of Tanks on PlayStation 4.

    World of Tanks rolls onto PS4 today
    Wargaming.net’s free-to-play combat phenomenon is available now

    It’s finally here, World of Tanks launch day on PS4! The game is now live worldwide, so start downloading now. Hooray! Now every PlayStation 4 owner can play World of Tanks for free and for as long as they like.

    There are no pay walls, no pay to win, just sweet, sweet tanks firing shells and blowing up other tanks in massive 15 vs 15 online battles. Of course there’s a Proving Grounds mode you can cut your teeth on before facing real adversaries online. No PlayStation Plus membership required (although if you have one you can pick up an awesome PS Plus Member exclusive tank).

    [​IMG]

    Not familiar with World of Tanks? I’m TJ Wagner, Project Lead at Wargaming.net for World of Tanks on PS4 and I’ll walk you through the basics.

    World of Tanks for PS4 starts out with three nations, over 130 tanks and dozens of maps with non-stop tactical action/combat. After a brief introduction to the game, you can choose the nation you want to start with from United States, Germany or USSR and jump right into battle.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Every battle earns you experience points (XP) and in game currency (Silver) to upgrade your tank or acquire new ones. Of course there are all sorts of customizations and additional items you can put on your tank. Grow and train up your crew to earn additional skills and perks.

    There’s also a Store where you can buy Premium time and tanks to help you earn faster in-game or for collecting special tanks. I won’t bore you with all the details, the game will teach you all that and best of all it is free! Just download it and give it a whirl and you’ll be an experienced tanker in no time.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    If you have any questions about the game you can usually find answers along with tips and tricks at ps4.worldoftanks.com or read what the community is saying (they are legion, as well as helpful) at ps4.worldoftanks.com/forums. There is a wealth of advice, experience and information over there, even I use it to look up things on the game.

    What’s more, World of Tanks is a living game that’s always changing. There are monthly free content and feature updates, adding new maps, nations and tanks. There’s always something new to try out or blow up with our trusty favourites. World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 brings along some exclusives you won’t find on other platforms like custom maps, tanks and all the goodness the platform has to offer.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    We recently held two open betas to test things out with close to a million battles played by early bird tankers. That means the game is stable, servers are ready and a huge base of players are set to take you on in battle. If you’re a Trophy hound, there are lots to start collecting including the ever coveted Platinum Trophy for earning them all.

    Okay, enough talking, I gotta get tanking. You can grab World of Tanks for free in the PlayStation Store from your console or initiate a download now by following this link. It couldn’t be easier and I can safely say Wargaming already has millions of satisfied customers, you like satisfaction don’t you? Then what are you waiting for? Download and play today!

    See you on the Battlefield.

Try out these new tanks on open fields of Steppes, the rolling hills of Redshire, the beaches of Pacific Island and the industrial city of Highway each offering a diverse battlefield with endless opportunities to take out the enemy.

    World of Tanks debuts single player campaign in War Stories, out on PS4 22nd August

    Episodic story includes historical events and alternative histories, can be played solo or cooperatively



    Listen up Tankers, Wargaming has massive news to share. Beginning 22nd August, we’re introducing the first ever single player campaign mode in World of Tanks history. The mode is called War Stories, and believe me when I tell you, this is a tanking experience like nothing you’ve played before.

    In War Stories, tankers will be given the thrill of experiencing story driven, episodic gameplay (solo or co-op), enabling you to relive historical events, play-out alternative histories, and even explore the chaos of fantasy campaigns.

    [​IMG]

    A new tank tutorial will also make it easier for incoming players to immerse themselves into the game thanks to a thorough three-part training mission that covers basic movement, scouting, sniping and a brief overview on tank armor and performance capabilities.

    In “Flashpoint Berlin”, a conflict between the Allies and Soviet forces in Germany leads to armoured warfare after the Allied High Commission decides that the Soviet blockade of Berlin is in violation of the Potsdam Agreements. And with the power of PlayStation and PS4 Pro, rewriting history in World of Tanks has never looked better.

    [​IMG]

    And this is only the beginning, as Wargaming promises to introduce new campaigns to War Stories throughout the year, including historic, alternative history and fantasy campaigns ratcheting up the intensity like never before.

    The battlefield is about to change, and we can’t wait for everybody to jump inside these War Stories as Wargaming unleashes the ultimate World of Tanks experience exclusive to console.

    See you in battle!

    Everything you need to know about World of Tanks: Mercenaries, out today on PS4
    The tank-battling phenomenon gets a host of major new features, maps and vehicles for PS4

    Prepare to roll out and fight for fortune, Commanders! World of Tanks: Mercenaries, the next and biggest evolution of the global tanking phenomenon, is free to download from 26th June.

    Set against the backdrop of a war without end, it’s time to fight for yourself and be your own hero. Mercenaries shakes up the classic World of Tanks formula with a host of new vehicles to use, maps to explore, stories to tell, and game features to dive into.

    This is the perfect time for new players to check out World of Tanks: Mercenaries on PlayStation 4, and if you’ve never played World of Tanks before, here are a handful of things you need to know to get you started on your career as a soldier of fortune in the world of Mercenaries.

    Enter the Mercenary nation
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Guns for hire are fighting for themselves in a world governed by lawlessness, which has given rise to the new Mercenary nation. Joining the game’s nine existing nations, including the UK, Japan, and France, vehicles from the new Mercenary nation are available to fight in multiplayer battles alongside history’s finest war machines.

    Take the reins on new Mercenary vehicles
    Mercenaries scour the world for parts and weapons to use to survive. The new vehicles in World of Tanks: Mercenaries are brought to life using parts scavenged from tanks from other nations – some tanks are made up of several different vehicles from a host of different nations! The result is an armada of unique, combat-ready vehicles that would strike fear into the hearts of even the most seasoned tank commanders.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Earn Mercenary vehicles with the contract system
    Traditionally, new vehicles must be purchased using XP and Silver earned from battles. The contract system is brand-new to World of Tanks: Mercenaries, and lets you take on missions to put together a new Mercenary vehicle. If you don’t fancy the grind, the contracts can be bought out for Gold – but the fun is most definitely in the thrill of the hunt!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Battle with powerful new crews and commanders
    Each Mercenary vehicle comes with a fully trained Elite Crew, consisting of incredibly powerful and skilled soldiers who are more than prepared to take on dangerous missions and deadly skirmishes.

    The first five Mercenary Crews introduced with the new tanks can be seen in our launch trailer for Mercenaries, from the erratic Crazy Snake to the furious Fallen Knight, and the bombastic Storm Hunter!

    Discover a new world
    In World of Tanks: Mercenaries, World War II dragged on for so long it reshaped the entire world. You can explore the new landscape that serves as the backdrop of the Mercenaries universe, shaped and ravaged by years of war, in a series of new and revamped battlegrounds to fight on in Multiplayer.

    Fan-favourite maps have been completely changed to fit in with the new world, with the lush Liberty Falls and a war-torn Himmelsdorf available to fight in with or against players around the world.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Steal from a coalition of chaos in War Stories: The Heist
    A brand-new War Stories campaign serves as the entry point to the Mercenaries universe. In ‘The Heist’ you can embark on an action-packed mission full of espionage, nuclear tensions, and epic tank battles.

    The story-exclusive Trinity tank, helmed by a motley crew of Mercenaries, is your vehicle as you take on a dangerous assignment. When a shadowy agent with atomic ambitions tasks our ‘heroes’ with stealing nuclear material, they soon find themselves at the mercy of an unprecedented partnership between the United States and the Soviet Union.

    It’s an explosive, dangerous, and totally awesome way to get acquainted with the new world!
