World of Tanks’ PS4 userbase swells to one million in five days

Well... huh.
World of Tanks has just announced that it’s amassed a million PlayStation 4 users since its launch on the platform last week.

“It’s barely been a month and already World of Tanks on PlayStation®4 has obliterated the milestone of 1 million users. Having been released on January 19, it took just five days to amass this big an army. Players have taken full advantage of platform-specific features and awesomely exclusive content. Featuring optimized controls, it’s never been easier to jump into World of Tanks on console, and tankers can roll out with over 130 historically accurate vehicles from the USA, Germany and the USSR.”

The stat should come as no surprise to anyone following Wargaming; its flagship game hit 60 million users several years ago, and Superdata just named WoT the fifth highest-revenue PC game of 2015.

McGuffn Wild_Phil MrFester I think most free to play games actually do and it’s rare they don’t. A game developer/publisher would actually have to specifically negotiate that specifically.
The same applies to most F2P Steam games, for example.

melissaheather Reesracer Yes…just did that. Was trying to resist, b/c I know a pre-order will soon follow. Blast you!

melissaheather If you’ve not had a go with the Luchs, do yourself a favour. Elite it and put the 3cm auto-cannon on it, and make life miserable for even tier VII (and tier VII) heavies…not to mention arty, of course. I’ve been playing WoT for over 5 years, and the Luchs remains my best stress-reliever after a few bad matches. 

(and I still have my Sherman with the derp — makes light tanks go *pop*)  :)

I started playing this again last night after hearing about the PS4 launch, and I had a little time to kill.
I really enjoy these tanks – 
Tiger 2 is my top dawg, an elegant (if a little slow) and iconic-looking tank with a powerful punch.
Tiger 1 is beautiful, perhaps the best-looking tank of all the German tanks.  Its design was improved upon, but it looks so classic.
M4 Sherman (the classic rounded one) has an inaccurate gun but it’s powerful against lower tiers.  You yanks made 40,000 of them. Holy moly.  Like a herd of buffalo coming over a hillside!  Don’t care for the 75mm pop gun but it’s ok against tier 4’s.  And it’s kinda fast.
Marder 2 tank killer is the bloody Finger of God against tier 2 and sometimes 3 tanks.  No armor, but nasty gun at that level. 
T7 Combat Car has an insane blazing rapid-fire gun on it (but no armor and does only light damage).  You’re going to die driving this jeep with a pair of .50 cals on it blasting away, but it’s going to be an exhilarating ride while it lasts.
Panzer 1c also has a rapid fire cannon and is a great low-tier light tank.  You can run, fight, hide, and smoke an enemy with one salvo at those tiers.

melissaheather Reesracer Awesome!. Still on the fence on BD. I reckon I’ll cave, as always, as many in my large gaming community are keen to start. Too many games!

melissaheather Better hide that lower glacis plate, but the 10,5 cm Kw.K. L/68 is truly an awesome gun. The Tiger II is rather underrated, actually, and is deadly and fun when driven properly.

(and…you’ve changed your profile picture…again)  :p

Ironhelix MrFester I am mainly talking about Prem time.  Hell when you go to WarGaming main site for the PS4 it asks you to sign in with your Sony account right after the WG account info.
