World of Tanks PS4 Is Official, Screenshots & Trailer Inside


Wargaming.net confirmed today that World of Tanks PS4 is real. The game will feature platform specific features and exclusive bonuses only available to PlayStation users.

Here's the official press release:

With over 150 million registered players across PC, console and mobile around the globe, the next target for World of Tanks is PlayStation®4, bringing a slew of new features to the battle. Complete DUALSHOCK®4 functionality means players will feel, hear and touch the battle like never before by incorporating light bar and controller speaker capabilities, as well as touchpad support. World of Tanks on PlayStation®4 will also support other key platform features, including Share Play and PlayStation®Vita Remote Play, as well as revamped controls designed to optimize the handheld experience. Exclusive to the PlayStation®4, for a limited time only, are two new maps.

Most excitingly, World of Tanks on PlayStation®4 is free to all PlayStation® account holders with no PlayStation®Plus membership needed in order to play. Gamers who have PS Plus membership, however, will gain access to a number of exclusive benefits and items, including a free premium tank with exclusive camouflage, three days of Premium Account time and special discounts on other purchases.

Project Lead TJ Wagner provided even more details on the official PlayStation Blog.

World of Tanks for PlayStation 4 will feature custom maps, custom tanks, custom skins and more. PS Plus members will have access to even more exclusive content and deals. We are also happy to announce that there will be exclusive Girls und Panzer content and themes at launch.

Wargaming.net is also preparing a beta test for World of Tanks PS4. This should happen before year's end and participants will enjoy special beta awards for their contribution; it will be interesting to see whether Wargaming.net follows the footsteps of their competitor Gaijin Entertainment, which enabled War Thunder cross-play between PC and PS4 players.
