World of Tanks is a is a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) that was developed by Wargaming (Minsk) and was officially released on August 12th, 2010. The focus in World of Tanks is on player vs. player (PvP) where 20th-century combat vehicles confront. Tanks and self-propelled artillery are inspired by vehicles from around 1910 to 1970, covering the pre-WW1 era up to the end of the Cold War.


Here are some of the main features of World of Tanks:

  • Gameplay: In World of Tanks, two teams confront each other and in order to win a match, a team has to either destroy all of the enemy’s vehicles or capture their base. To capture a base, the team has to stay in it long enough, without enduring any damage. Players are free to choose the vehicles they want, each of which can have three pieces of additional equipment that will influence the vehicle’s advantages. Matches take place on one of the World of War maps, that is randomly selected. Gameplay mechanics include camouflage, shell ricochets, module and personnel damage and stay the same over the different modes.

  • Modes: Originally, there were eight battle options, but today only six are supported: random, team-training, tank-company, team, stronghold, and special battles. The two modes that are no longer supported are Historical battle and Rampage.

  • Maps: There are over 70 different World of Tanks maps that vary in size, location, and weather, among others. The full location list and the maps’ description are available online - there is something for everyone.

  • Vehicles: World of Tanks features five categories of vehicles: light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks, tank destroyers, and self-propelled artillery, for a total of over 600 vehicles. Even though they are designed following real-life armored vehicles from various European countries (plus the United States and China), their features have been modified in order to adapt to World of Tanks’ gameplay.
