World Of Tanks Rolls Onto Xbox 360 On February 12


PC gamers shouldn’t be the only people allowed to have fun blasting each other to bits in 15v15 tank battles. To rectify that, announced a release date for the Xbox 360 version of its mega-popular game “World of Tanks,” and it’s right around the corner on February 12.

Appropriately named “World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition,” the console iteration will be free-to-play for Xbox Live Gold members and be on a seven-day timed trial for all other Xbox Live accounts. In-game purchases of premium tanks, consumables and premium account time will make their way over from PC, joining 360-specific features like Achievements and a custom UI.

Having had a chance to go hands-on with an early build of the “Xbox 360 Edition” last summer at E3, I can tell you that while some things are simplified just a bit (there are less countries and less overall vehicles, at least to start), the game looks and feels like “World of Tanks.” Playing with an Xbox 360 controller takes some getting used to, but the bet here is that some players will prefer it to the control schemes available on the computer.
