World Of Tanks To Debut On Xbox One July 28th
One of the biggest trends in the gen of console gaming has been the explosion of console based free to play games. Many of them have been exclusive to a console and Xbox One is set to receive yet another. Wargaming.net’s highly competitive World of Tanks is set to release on July 28th.
Not only is this free-to-play game coming with enhancements and such, it is also coming with cross platform gameplay with the Xbox 360 edition which it was released last August. With over 6 million downloads on the 360, this is one of the more popular free to play games on either past or current gen systems. While this new version of the very popular MMO is polished with better graphics, it also sports shared progress between the two platforms as well as a new player versus environment mode called Proving Grounds.
Proving Grounds is a single player mode where the player can take any tank they like and play against enemy AI tanks if a few different modes that emulate the online experience.
This is an interesting move in that it allows players to play the game on either console while not forcing you to ‘upgrade’ to current gen. If you play the X1 version one day and decide to go to a family member’s house that only has a 360, you can still play with your updated progress. Here’s to cross platform play!
