The free-to-play World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will be released on Wednesday, Feb. 12 and come with more than 100 tanks from the United States, Germany and the United Kingdom to duke it out in team-based online matches. As with its PC sibling, more countries, more tanks and more gametypes will be added throughout the life of the title.

Those that participated in the beta currently have access to the game as part of an early access period.

An Xbox LIVE Gold subscription will be required to play but downloading World of Tanks automatically grants seven days of Xbox LIVE Gold free.

The Xbox 360 version of World of Tanks was re-built by Wargaming West (formerly Day 1 Studios) to take advantage of the console and the controller interface. Premium tanks, consumables and premium accounts to boost experience and currency accrual rates are also available for those that don't mind plopping down real money in the game to progress faster.
