World of Tanks: Modern Armor is now available with cross-play support on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. In the first season of the game, players can earn massive rewards while diving deep into both legacy and modern-era gameplay.
In First Strike, the premier episode launching with the release of the Modern Armor saga, two powerful alliances will come forth: The Western Alliance and Eastern Alliance. These groups boast a combined total of 18 tanks, all immediately available for players to research. With the release of Modern Armor and the premiere episode of First Strike, the development team is committed to a monthly release of new content, episodes, and seasons to ensure a steady stream of action for players on both Xbox and PlayStation.
In addition to these new tanks, perk-filled 3D commanders and new, innovative consumables have also been released. Players can now strategize their battles using Smokescreens or restore vital health over time with Hull Patches. These consumables, partnered with additional tank modules, will help players reign victorious on the battlefield.
With the introduction of eras, Modern Armor will also allow players to explore 50 years of the Cold War. Beginning in the 1950’s and onward, the eras are divided into three separate time periods: Post War, Escalation, and Detente. Cold War Mode will also keep the battle balanced with an era-based matchmaking system.
Four new maps have also launched with locations spanning Southeast Asia, Germany, Norway, and the Middle East. Players will have a chance to battle their way through terrain that is almost double the size of the current WWII maps, providing extra space for new strategic battle opportunities.
Rolling out for the first time in the game’s history is the addition of modern combat, which brings new, fast-paced gameplay to the forefront. Players will also be able to explore added features including new maps and consumables, an era-based matchmaker, 3D commanders, and of course, a growing list of advanced tanks from the late 20th century.
TJ Wagner, the Executive Producer for World of Tanks Console, said “We are happy to bring modern tanks and new maps designed from the ground up for players to enjoy! With tanks such as the T42 or the M1A2 Abrams, players will be able to switch between eras and experience modern tanks using new perks and loadouts that will enhance their gaming experience. Modern Armor is our biggest evolution yet, and we look forward to jumping into battles with the World of Tanks Console community with First Strike!”.
World of Tanks: Modern Armor is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored combat from two different eras.
