Wargaming announced today that their mobile game World of Tanks Blitz has launched. This game marks the company’s first step into the mobile games market. The free to play action game is now live worldwide for all iOS devices, including tablets and smartphones (iPad 2 and/or iPhone 4s or newer).
“With World of Tanks Blitz, we aim to bring our expertise in delivering triple-A MMOs to the competitive mobile space,” said Andrey Ryabovol, Director of Global Operations at Wargaming. “The team succeeded in creating a quality original product that puts a fresh twist on tank combat, and it will be great to see players from all over the world get their hands on it.”
Wargaming has rolled out World of Tanks Blitz to such countries as: Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland with a soft launch on iOS back in May, 2014. During this soft launch, World of Tanks Blitz received an average score of 4.5 in the App store, successfully climbing to the Top 3 Overall in that region, and in the end saw an average of 70 minutes spent in game.
Since then, the development team has added a new number of features and enhancement to World of Tanks Blitz, and now offers two player platoons to team up with friends. Also, Facebook integration has been implemented, as well as upgraded visuals.
About the game: “The release version features over 90 iconic German, American and Soviet vehicles spread across four classes: agile light tanks, well-rounded medium tanks, powerful heavy tanks and long-range focused tank destroyers. Mobile tankers will tap and swipe the touch screen to control multi-tone armored giants and destroy the competition across eight original battle arenas. Leveling up will unlock new vehicle models, allowing players to explore iconic WWII machines and master tactical skills in 7 vs 7 PvP battles.”
