6 jun

Get ready to experience the next evolution of World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 and Xbox, coming June 26.

In a world worn down by an endless war, where old allegiances mean nothing and everyone is out for themselves, what can you do but be your own hero? World of Tanks: Mercenaries is the game's biggest update ever, and welcomes players into an alternate reality governed by disorder.

Mercenaries introduces an armory of powerful vehicles made from parts scavenged from different tanks, the entirely new Mercenary nation, revamped maps ravaged by war and time, a revised user interface, and an epic story campaign to introduce players to the Mercenaries universe. All new vehicles will be earnable through the new Contract system, and come with unique Mercenary Crews who are fully trained and built for survival.

Get ready to roll out and fight for fortune in World of Tanks: Mercenaries, deploying with Update 4.5 on June 26 exclusively on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

 

Welcome to World of Tanks: Mercenaries

Wars have raged on for far too long, changing history forever. A new kind of soldier has risen from the ashes of the old world, and they will battle for what's left of the new one. Opportunity is everywhere. There are no more rules. This is the age of Mercenaries, a brand new era of World of Tanks on PlayStation®4 and Xbox.

Be Your Own Hero

An epic new story campaign provides the jumping-in point for the world of Mercenaries, featuring the story-exclusive Trinity tank. The Heist is an action-packed tale of espionage, nuclear tensions, and tank battles, and sees a motley crew of Mercs taking on the combined might of the world's two biggest superpowers.

Mercenary Nation, Tech Tree, and Vehicles

A new nation will be introduced with Update 4.5, comprised of hired guns without any national loyalties to speak of. New tanks are made up of parts scavenged from different vehicles and brought together to create something truly original. 5 Mercenary vehicles will be available at launch, with even more on their way in the weeks and months to follow.

A New World To Discover

Explore and fight through a collection of fan-favorite maps ravaged by war and time, with more on their way after the initial roster. As the world changes in Mercenaries, so does the rest of World of Tanks.

Take on Contracts to Earn Vehicles

Mercenary contracts present a new way to earn elite tanks in-game. Complete contracts to earn powerful new war machines to use in online multiplayer battles. If you can't wait to earn your tank, you can buy out the contract at any time to access the rewards more quickly.

Get the Crew Together

New Crews and refined battle roles are available, giving you the opportunity to feel closer to the action than ever before. Each tank is complemented by a special trained crew that matches its playstyle, and you will have the opportunity to continue to earn new skills as you fight and progress.

We worked very closely with a group of our players on the initial designs and concepts of the new tanks being introduced with the Mercenaries line, with a larger group of players helping us gather feedback on aesthetics and balance through live tests. World of Tanks: Mercenaries was a truly collaborative effort, and we want to thank each and every member of our community for their contributions. See you on June 26!
