World of Tanks, Wargamming.net
World of Tanks is a online multiplayer game featuring mid-20th century (1930s-1960s) era combat vehicles.
The player takes control of a single armored vehicle of their choice, and is placed into a battle on a random map. The player has control over the vehicle’s movement, firing, and can communicate with allied players through typed or voice chat. A simple random match is won either by destroying all vehicles on the opposing team or capturing the opposing team’s base. There are other game modes that change the rules of the battle, but gameplay mechanics remain the same. World of Tanks contains multiple game mechanics such as camouflage, shell ricochets, and module damage.
The players in World of Tanks can choose six primary types of battles: random battles, team-training battles, tank-company battles, team battles, stronghold battles and special battles. Historical Battle and Rampage are former options but have since been taken down for improvement upon its poor reception following its release. Within random battles, players can also participate in platoons, groups of two to three players who are put into the same team. There are also missions to be completed in the game modes for varying amounts of rewards.
Initial Games have worked closely with the World of Tanks player community to develop a series of items that capture the spirit of the game while celebrating the 10th anniversary of the title – notably producing a commemorative Medal for the occasion.
