World of Tanks debuted on console six years ago

World of Tanks Mercenaries is the name of the console version of World of Tanks, the enduringly popular tank-based MMO-shooter from Wargaming. The first iteration of the game landed on PC all the way back in 2010 and followed on consoles four years later. It's this six-year anniversary that the studio is celebrating this week, along with the news that in the last half-a-dozen years the console version of the game has attracted more than 20 million players to its servers.

Anyone who logs in during the celebrations from this week will be able to get their hands on a Ironclad-T29 after playing one game - a Tier III Medium class tank, which they'll find in their specially decorated garage for the occasion. In addition, the game will be bringing back the Clan Wars game mode for the event, promising to pit the game's very best teams against each other to win prize gold and rankings. On top of that, the game is offering special Valentines Day Ops alongside new edition Warchests that offer a 6% Anniversary bonus.

Players can immerse themselves in the alternative history setting of World of Tanks: Mercenaries by taking on the riveting new PvE story campaign, The Heist. This action-packed tale of espionage follows a motley crew of Mercenaries contracted to set up, execute and escape from a raid on a secret war facility. Their mission is to steal nuclear material for a client who harbors his own atomic ambitions, but the crew soon finds itself at the mercy of the combined powers of the United States and the Soviet Union. Players can expect adrenaline-fueled tank battles as they tackle this story alone – like a true Mercenary – or band together with friends for co-operative online multiplayer action!

In addition to the new story campaign, the Mercenaries has a far-reaching impact across the entire game, with the addition of new maps to Multiplayer battles. Players can expect to explore and fight through an array of fan-favorite maps ravaged by war and time, with original Mercenary vehicles available to battle with or against the game’s existing roster of over 680 vehicles.
