The free-to-play World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition is now officially available to everyone worldwide via the Xbox Store. Wargaming also announced a pair of Founder's Packs for the team tank battling game with a freebie Premium tank if both are purchased.
World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will feature more than one hundred tanks from three different nations - United States, Germany and the United Kingdom - as well as seven different maps. Like the PC version, more tanks, maps and other content will be added in the future. However, the main difference between the two are the controls and tank customization options in the garage.
Wargaming has also release two Founder's Packs that will be available through the in-game store for 40 percent off through Feb. 28. Founders Pack 1 costs 6,700 Gold (~$30) and comes with a T23 tier VII American medium tank plus other goodies such as 17 premium rounds, an additional Garage slot, a fully upgraded crew, 30 Premium days, gold star emblem and a collection of repair kits, first aid kits and fire extinguishers.
Founder Packs 2 is 3,400 Gold (~$16) and comes with the Pz. Kpfw. V-IV tier V German medium tank as well as 19 premium rounds, fully upgraded crew, 7 premium days, black star emblem plus a collection of repair kits, first aid kits and fire extinguishers.
Purchasing both packs grants access to the T-127 tier III Soviet light tank.
"World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition is a tremendous leap forward for Wargaming," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "Not only does this release mark the company’s very first title on console it also presents us the opportunity to bring World of Tanks to a tremendously passionate new audience of gamers around the world."
