World Of Tanks Adds WWE-Themed Vehicles And Cross-Play
A new update introduces vehicles based on The Undertaker and other WWE superstars, and you can get a free Stone Cold tank
The console version of World of Tanks is getting a major update today that adds pro wrestling content and allows Xbox One and PlayStation 4 gamers to play together. It also marks the launch of a new season pass called Season 1 SummerSlam that will last through September 21. It includes WWE-themed tanks, collectible crews, garages, and more.
Out now, the 5.0 update allows players to check out five tanks that have been inspired by World Wrestling Entertainment royalty. Alongside Becky Lynch and The Undertaker, WWE Hall of Famers Andre the Giant, Sgt. Slaughter, and Steve Austin have their own tanks. The "Stone Cold" tank is available for free, so everyone can raise some hell online.
A WWE garage will allow players to customize their vehicles with wrestler introductions, and there will be two sets of crew chests that include content based upon the currently available superstars. Additional content arrives in August that is based upon Roman Reigns, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, and Shawn Michaels.
This marks the biggest update in several years that the console team has worked on, according to Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore executive producer TJ Wagner.
"Partnering with WWE has been a fantastic experience and is bringing unique new content to our players," Wagner says. "[Players] can expect more updates like SummerSlam in the future! With update 5.0, we're very excited to be able to address many player requests and desires for our game like cross-play that unites PlayStation and Xbox tankers, to make match making faster and better."
Thanks to the addition of cross-play, this marks the first time that players on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can battle each other in World of Tanks. Full patch notes for the 5.0 update are available on the game's official forum.
