World of Tanks Rolls Out to WCG Grand Finals

21 June, 2012 — Wargaming, the award-winning videogame developer and publisher, today announced that World of Tanks will be featured at the World Cyber Games Grand Finals, taking place at Kunshan International Exposition & Convention Center in Kunshan, China, from November 29th to December 2nd.

Already a favorite amongst professional gamers around the globe, World of Tanks makes its World Cyber Games debut after numerous and successful tournaments and championships ensured by its highly dynamic yet strategically diverse gameplay.

"Several months ago we introduced a special blitz version of tank battles with only seven players per team, and it has proven to be a great fit for tournament formats," said World of Tanks eSport Lead Alexey Kuznetsov. "We are all excited about being included in the most popular cybersport event of the year, and I'm sure World of Tanks will make a great debut there."

World of Tanks is the first and only team-based, massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, the Soviet Union, and France, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrades and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In World of Tanks, it's all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own steel empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
