World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will launch worldwide on February 12, Wargaming has announced.

The console edition of the massively successful tank battler--the PC version is said to have raked in revenue of $372 million last year--will only be free-to-play for users with an Xbox Live Gold account. Those without Xbox Live Gold will be able to access a 7-day trial of the title.

The Xbox 360 version of the title is being handled by Wargaming West, which operated as F.E.A.R. 3 and Fracture developer Day One Studios until the company was acquired by Wargaming in 2013.

At launch, Wargaming says World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will feature over 100 tanks from the US, Germany, and the UK. The company says it plans to add new tanks and other nations into the game in the future.
