One by one, Wargaming.net’s “World of Tanks” has taken on most of the major games platforms. The popular tank combat massively multiplayer online (MMO) game began life on the PC, moved to mobile and Xbox 360 in 2014, and most recently, the Xbox One this summer. Next up: the PlayStation 4, on the way for 2016. Each of these major roll-outs was led by a big bash to celebrate the game’s arrival on the new platform, and by extension, the community. This time is no different as Wargaming.net will be hosting a launch party for “World of Tanks” on PS4. More on the party in a minute, after a few details about the game.
The PS4 version of “World of Tanks” is slated to offer both platform-tailored and custom content for Sony’s current-gen console, according to TJ Wagner, project lead at Wargaming.net, in a September 2015 PlayStation blog announcement.
On the platform-focused side, look for Dualshock 4 controller support, share play, PS Vita remote play, live streaming, free-to-play for PlayStation Account holders and more. On the custom content side, new maps, skins and more. PlayStation Plus members will have access to further new content and deals. For the more otaku fans of tanks and anime, there will even be exclusive Girls und Panzer content and themes at launch.
Taking place in San Francisco, The World of Tanks PlayStation 4 Party promises open beta gaming of the PS4 version of “World of Tanks,” food, drinks and giveaways with the developers.
As timing goes, it’s logical this launch party will take place on the eve of the PlayStation Experience 2015 event, which will be December 5-6, 2016, in San Francisco.
