World of Tanks Coming to PS4 With New Content

Sign-ups for beta open now.

21 Comments

Following rumours and leaks, Wargaming has now confirmed World of Tanks is set for release on PlayStation 4.

TJ Wagner, project lead on the PS4 version of Wargaming's successful massively multiplayer title, explained the studio is "tuning the experience specifically" for Sony's console.

The game will debut with new content never seen before, including "custom maps, custom tanks, custom skins, and more." It will also launch with exclusive Girls und Panzer content and themes.

The PS4 version will support Share Play, PS Vita Remote Play, streaming "and more." As with the PC version, it is free-to-play, with in-game microtransactions.

Online play is not gated behind a PlayStation Plus subscription, so all PlayStation Network account holders can play. Those interested can sign up for access to the upcoming beta and release version of World of Tanks for PlayStation 4 here.

World of Tanks was first launched in 2011 for the PC. An Xbox 360 version was released in February last year.

In July 2015, Wargaming announced the global release of World of Tanks for Xbox One. The game featured cross-play between its Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions. The Xbox One also introduced a Player versus Environment mode called Proving Grounds.

As far as I know, a company using its own servers wont require the player to pay for PS+ to play online. Sony is the only sensible choice for F2P games. Its the only place the free is any sort of meaningful.

Played this game on the Xbox 360 and then upgraded to the Xbox One . Glad to see that the PS people will get to play this game as well . A lot of fun with a small learning curve .

@gottago42: Let's see here this article where it was announced... http://www.gamespot.com/articles/world-of-tanks-coming-to-xbox-one-with-cross-platf/1100-6425366/ Not a single Sony fanboy saying that it sucks. And looking at this article, still not a single Sony fanboy proclaiming it as messiah. Nice attempt to defame a fanbase, Xbox fanboy.

@gottago42: typical ponies. The game is fun but has a hard learning curve (at least for me) I jump on it every once and a while but too many other Exclusive games to worry about on Xbox One (Rare Replay, Gears, Forza 6 now, and Halo 5 in a month) And lets not forget the indie Cluster Puck 99, thats a fun game as well.

@crusadernights: What's it to you? We have awesome exclusives and the vast majority of Xbox one players bought an Xbox one for that very reason. Don't be mad cos Microsoft has the money and resources to put out better exclusives. Microsoft really doesn't need many 3rd party games and I'm super happy Phil Spencer is focusing on exclusives. It's better for the Xbox one gamers.

3rd party games are good for ps4 but not that much for Xbox one.

Bloodborne is the only exclusive I really enjoy from Sony, that and Hotline Miami. The rest are interactive movies (until dawn, the order1886, and even infamous had too many cut movie scenes)

The only disappointment I have with this game is that it's not Destiny: The Naked Kid, now in stores!

@xsonicchaos: Lol, the hipsters are so outraged by yet MORE Destiny record breaking success they have to go to other articles to tug their ironic beards, admire their vintage suspenders and rage incoherently about it?

guess they realize they lost the argument.
