War Stories World Of Tanks Update Available Now On Consoles

War Stories World Of Tanks Update Available Now On Consoles

The new downloadable story content for World of Tanks is now available for all console versions of the popular Tank battle game.

Update 4.0, titled War Stories, was announced on the official website, and the highly anticipated single and co-op driven story content for World of Tanks is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

The War Stories downloadable content will be a console exclusive and more importantly, will be a free update. The new DLC will let players experience episodic stories based on real historic events in addition to alternate takes on historical timelines.

War Stories will be playable solo or with a friend in an exclusive co-op mode. New episodes will be added throughout the year, promising to keep things fresh and exciting for fans of World of Tanks.

One of the featured episodes in the War Stories DLC will be called “Flashpoint Berlin”, where players will engage in escalating conflicts and skirmishes set in Germany after the collapse of the Berlin Blockade.

Another episode that will be featured in the just released War Stories add-on will be known as “Brothers in Armor”. This episode will let players step into the shoes of a US Tank Commander as they learn the ins and outs of the legendary M4 Sherman Tank; this mission will act as a tutorial mode.

A new map will also be available starting today. The European inspired urban environment for Icebound will see players surrounded by the treacherous winter terrain. The map will feature machine gun nests and flames.

Additionally, the mini map within the game has received an overhaul. Up until now, the map was somewhat simplistic, but with the newest update for World of Tanks the map is now fully coloured, featuring detailed environments, elevation shading, and more.

Those interested in the full list of changes available with the War Stories update can visit the official website.

Wargaming’s Hybrid Wars Launches on Steam

Wargaming's Hybrid Wars Launches on Steam

Ever since the release of their widely popular franchise World of Tanks, Wargaming has built quite the momentum within the gaming industry. Earlier this month, the developers sat down with Sega to introduce Valkyria Chronicles content into World of Tanks Blitz, their World of Tanks franchise mobile offering. Now, Wargaming has released a brand new game available on Steam: a real-time strategy game called Hybrid Wars.

According to the game’s official website, Hybrid Wars is a “classic top-down shooter” in which players “command and upgrade [their] own arsenal of futuristic mechs to take on wave after wave of enemy forces.” The game features over 50 different kinds of enemies, as well as co-op multiplayer. But most of all, the game has been praised for its simple and straightforward gameplay: stomp around as a mech and shoot everything that moves.

Wargaming is also featuring Hybrid Wars bundles for interested World of Tanks players. This includes a $36.99 bundle with 5,000 gold and a copy of Hybrid Wars Deluxe edition, and a $49.99 Futureproof bundle with the deluxe edition, a season pass, and 6,500 worth in gold. Which, all things considered, is not a bad deal: especially because Hybrid Wars has seen a fair amount of praise on its Steam store page for drawing inspiration from early ’90s and 2000s shooters. Suffice to say, it’s clear Wargaming wants to bring its World of Tanks fans into the mix by receiving gold for cheaper than they would on the Premium Shop.

Hybrid Wars officially went online Sept 29th. So if you’re interested in giving Wargaming’s brand new top-down strategy game a shot, it’s currently available for $17.99 USD on the Steam storefront, with the deluxe copy running $19.99 and the deluxe season pass bundle priced at $24.99. No word yet on DLC, but all things considered, the $7 increase is not that bad for a game clocking in under $20.
