GDC 2011 - Preview

GDC 2011 - Preview - World of Tanks - MMORPG.com

During last week's GDC, MMORPG.com's Drew Wood had the chance for a first hand look at World of Tanks. Drew's 'interest was piqued' to say the least. Find out what captured Drew's attention about World of Tanks. Tried it yourself? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.

World of Tanks, upon first glance, has no business being called an MMO. It's more akin to a Massively Online Battle Arena (or MOBA), not so different from the Battlefield gaming series. Having spent more than a few hours invested in Battlefield 2142 in my day (still one of my favourite gaming experiences), I did take a look at World of Tanks at GDC and have my interest piqued. The game essentially boils down to its two gameplay modes. One was affectionately referred to as “Counter-Strike with Tanks”, which is more or less their flagship for the game. It's also exactly what it sounds like. You select your chosen tank, do any repairs that are needed, add a few tidbits and upgrades to your tank, and then you enter into your queue to start your team battle.
