Wargaming has revealed plans to expand its multiplatform efforts with the announcement of World of Tanks Blitz, a free-to-play MMO title for smartphones and tablets.

According to the publisher, the new title was inspired by the PC version of World of Tanks.

World of Tanks Blitz will feature touchscreen controls, 7 vs. 7 PvP battles and the series' trademark combination of action, teamwork and strategic gameplay. Nations appearing in the game include USA, Germany, and USSR, and the roster of vehicles will include medium tanks, heavy tanks and tank destroyers.

According to Wargaming, World of Tanks Blitz will join the recently announced World of Tanks Generals, a browser-based TCG set in the World of Tanks universe, as an example of the company's vision to expand their multiplatform strategy into the mobile space.

Wargaming said both games will fit into the soon-to-be-launched Wargaming.net Service, which will reportedly see all Wargaming titles unified under a single login system.

Wargaming's strategy : "Lets not invest in improving, or rather, finishing the game just yet, it's still the only one out there. So until someone else brings some competition,lets rip off as many people as we can."

Wargaming is worse than EA. And that's an understatement. 

I'm just glad that another more serious company is brining some really hard competition soon. I will enjoy Wargaming's downfall.

I played WOT for about a year and they nickel and dime you every chance they get.

Now they have stupidly OP tanks in the game that can 1-2 shot you and match making is a total joke a lot of the time.

I was a fool and spent cash on that game. Just to find out my investment has now turned into a handy cap. For example... I bought a lowe and would get tier 8 battles a lot of times. Now all I get is tier 9 and 10 battles. Where my tank does 230 ish damage a hit and the others do 1k+. On top of it they have lots more armor and lots more HP.

I learned never to invest into a F2P game since playing this game. If you do... Don't go over a retail price of a real game.

Just to give you an Idea on cost to play this game. To unlock 1 line it costs over $100 in real cash. That's to covert your locked XP as well.

If that wasn't bad enough you have to either buy a premium tank or time to keep making money. Because they have it set up that once you get about tier 7 you start loosing tons of money.

Last is they stealth nerf prem tanks cash flow. My lowe used to make 115k-150k every battle now I'm lucky to hit 50-70k. Since they are now also putting you more and more into higher tier you also have to buy gold rounds just to compete. So you really end up making something like 10-15k.

Just a FYI for anyone out there.

ah nice to see another option to get some tank gaming in when im on the move hehe :)


I think WOT has to be the best f2p game on the market.. hours and hours of fun to be had and you dont have to pay a penny... the only really thing you get from paying is faster progression.. but they gameplay is fun no matter what and even the lower tier battles can be more fun than the higher ones..

In terms of unique battle system, Age of wushu will be the best spokesperson in 2013.Tired of clumsy Western action game? Time for some freshness!

Considering how much WarGaming as a company loves to nickle and dime their customers I'm amazed it took them this long to get into the mobile market.

@Truth_Hurts_U  

you sound like a noob who try to buy his way to the top instead of putting in the work. Been playing since BETA and know HOW to play the game. You only spend money if you want and can be profitable as long as you play smart.

I played since launch and played over 8K battles. This just shows how bad your trolling really is.

Even WG said you have to play lower tier in order to make money.

Shows how dumb your comments are. There is a reason this game averages $8 per person. They make millions of dollars because of how they have the game set up.

There is no advancement at a reasonable pace.

Noob.
