November 9, 2016 — World of Tanks Blitz is available today on Steam, from 5pm. Those who take to the battlefield on phones and tablets can finally prove their worth and face off with PC users. However, the question of “to battle or not to battle” is up to each player: they can choose a single platform or a mixed-platform matchmaker.
Nearly 200,000 players took part in the two Beta weekends prior to the game’s full release on Steam. These tankers put the new cross-platform matchmaker through its paces and shared their feedback, which was invaluable in improving the gaming experience.
“With the game already available on Windows, Google and Apple stores, Steam was a natural step,” said Andrey Ryabovol, World of Tanks Blitz Publishing Product Director. “We want to give our players freedom when choosing where, when, and through which channels they want to play World of Tanks Blitz. We’d like to welcome our new players and encourage everyone to join in and have fun battling across iOS, Android, Mac OS X, and Windows devices.”
With the release of World of Tanks Blitz on Steam, the game has become a true multi–platform title offering full cross-platform gameplay across iOS, Android, Windows, Mac OS X. Those with a Wargaming.net ID can get direct access to World of Tanks Blitz on any device, meaning all in-game content, experience, and credits will be saved.
Players can grab 4 different Pioneer Packs upon release, which include some unique tanks: the Panther 8.8, VK 45.03 and Großtraktor Krupp. As an added bonus, the special Steam camouflage “Breakthrough” will be available on all Blitz compatible devices from November 9-18. With the release of World of Tanks Blitz on Steam, the game is now available for Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, and Mac OS X.
