World of Tanks VR is an instalment of the game we all love/hate now in virtual reality. Recently Wargaming announced a partnership with Neurogaming to create World of Tanks VR, where 2 to 4 players can face each other in immersive tank battles.
About the Game
You control a T-44-100 tank. The goal is to destroy as many enemy tanks as possible during 2 rounds of 4 minutes each. One game session lasts up to 10 minutes.
The Soviet T-44-100 mid-sized, experimental tank was created in 1945 based on the T-44 tank, which was in turn being developed to replace the legendary T-34. Unlike the serial T-44, the -100 variation boasts a 100-mm LB-1 gun, a modified turret to accommodate it, and spaced armor along the sides.
A snowy and hilly terrain with all kinds of obstacles, shelters and destructible objects. Winding roads running across hills and village ruins allow you to approach the enemy from behind and find a lot of places for an ambush.
VR engine and hardware
WORLD OF TANKS VR is built on the Unreal Engine and adapted for the HTC VIVE VR headset. The game is a joint development of Wargaming and Neurogaming. Future plans include releasing additional tank models maps specifically for World of Tanks VR.
