Armored Warfare announces Eye of the Storm expansion

This morning we had a lively discussion in the Massively OP office over whether or not Armored Warfare had ever actually launched. We thought it had, considering all of its releases to date, but in doing some research, we determined the game has simply existed in a soft-launch open beta state since October 2015.

Beta or no, the vehicle PvP game is getting ready to roll out a huge summer expansion called Eye of the Storm. Update 0.21 will add a new Panama Canal map for players to fight over and toss in Czechoslovak and Polish progression vehicles to add more spice to the combat front.

In addition to these headlining features, Eye of the Storm has plenty of smaller, but welcome, changes. These include economy changes that “justly reward” players, garage UI improvements, graphical upgrades, ammunition fixes, and revamps to the Narrows and Roughneck maps.

Take a closer look at the Panama Canal waterway map below!

Armored Warfare reworks the Ghost Field map

After some major mechanical changes, it’s possible that a lot of maps in Armored Warfare just don’t have the pop they used to. But you needn’t worry about the Ghost Field map, because that map has recently undergone an extensive overhaul for both PvP matches and Global Operations encounters. And these changes are all made with the recent mechanical revisions in mind, so you can be sure that things like foliage and cover are arranged accordingly.

In addition to new objectives for the Global Operations encounter, players will also note that tank commanders are no longer required to pay for ammunition or repairs. This allows you to focus more on controlling key points and deploying NPC assistance to take control of the map as a whole. Check out some screenshots and a video preview of the map just below. We should note that despite the name, the redone map still does not feature any ghosts; whether this is a positive or not will depend on your personal attitudes about fighting ghosts in tanks.

Armored Warfare launches its Tanks Reloaded balance patch and previews its immediate followup

It’s been a while since Armored Warfare first discussed its upcoming “Balance 2.0” adjustments for the game’s mechanics, but the first pass has been added to the game with patch 0.19. The patch adjusts tank gameplay extensively while simultaneously adding 26 new tanks to play. But that’s not all the patch includes; there’s also a new PvP map, two new PvE missions, a new Skirmish mode, and a new Global Operations match. That’d be enough for a patch even without all of the balance changes.

Also, that isn’t the end of the story; the game is already previewing its next major update, which will include more balance changes, a new Garage interface, another new PvE mission, and new UI elements. So the big stuff just keeps rolling along. You can check out a trailer for the most recent patch just below, and you already know what to look forward to after you’ve finished up with that.

Obsidian hands off Armored Warfare to My.com

Obsidian Entertainment has gotten out of the tank business, as the developer announced that it has handed off Armored Warfare in its entirety to Russian video game company My.com.

My.com was the publisher of the game, but from now on it looks as though the company will be doing double duty by handling the development of the lobby vehicle battler as well. Obsidian, which laid off several members of the dev team back in December, said that it wants to focus on its other titles, like Pillars of Eternity 2.

“We are grateful for all contributions made by everyone on the Armored Warfare development teams, past and present. The restructured Armored Warfare development team is continuing the current development and update plans and will be dedicated to deliver content to our worldwide players in the most consistent manner,” said My.com Publishing Director Yuri Maslikov.

Obsidian’s Armored Warfare team hit with layoffs

Obsidian Entertainment has announced layoffs for an unknown number of staffers working on military MMO Armored Warfare.

Gamasutra reports that the cuts are planned to “take effect early next year,” so they’ll only partly ruin Christmas, though it’s not yet known how many employees will be affected. Work on the game will continue.

Here’s the official Obsidian statement to the press, suggesting that My.com’s decision to move part of the game’s development to Russia is partially the cause:

“This week we let some of our developers on Armored Warfare know that they are being laid off early next year. The publisher of Armored Warfare decided to move a portion of the development of the product to their headquarters in Moscow. We remain extremely proud of Armored Warfare and all the work we have and will continue to put into it. None of the other products at Obsidian were affected by this. We wish our people the best, and are working with them to find homes with other developers.”
