World of Tanks Sandbox Server received an unexpected update today. No announcements were made so far by Wargaming but it seems to be quite big with over 3GB in total size. But what could we be testing? Battle Royale Mode.
Victor Kislyi said recently on an interview with Gamespot that Wargaming could consider a Battle Royale mode: “…a bunch of tanks, or small tank teams like platoons fighting each other, the last man standing, something like this, would make sense. We would seriously think about this. But, the truth is we’re not making a Battle Royale tank game as of now.”
World of Tanks Battle Royale Mode
Please remember the mode is a test, it’s still under construction and the map doesn’t look finished at all. More details will most probably be announced soon by Wargaming.
Players have a choice of four initial tanks, pick one and go to battle to face thirty-nine other players. Once in the battle, it’s similar to other games, upgrade your tank and be the last one surviving.
You will recognize the map from Frontline mode, now adapted to play Battle Royale. Once you start, you have to quickly try to get your tank upgraded and survive as long as you can. Ammunition is very limited, and the map keeps closing areas as time goes by.
Overall the mode is fun, but will it be well accepted by World of Tanks fans? What do you think, is it something you would like to play?
