War has raged for far too long. As the dust begins to settle, soldiers and civilians alike forsake the loyalties to which they once held and decide to fight for themselves. In a world governed by lawlessness where history has been changed forever, it’s time to be your own hero.
After months of secrecy, Wargaming is finally ready to launch World of Tanks: Mercenaries for Xbox One and Xbox 360. It’s the biggest (and best) update the game has received to date, and we can’t wait for you to roll out and hit the battlefield. With more stories to tell, a new line of tanks to earn, a changed game world, and a totally new game interface, this is the perfect time for new players to experience World of Tanks on Xbox One.
Prepare to Enter Mercenary Country
With a long and arduous war leaving the world in ruins, guns for hire operate amidst the disorder. With Update 4.5 and the launch of World of Tanks: Mercenaries, we’re introducing the Mercenary nation, with a whole new line of unique vehicles to go along with it. Joining the existing line-up of in-game nations such as the USA, Japan, France, and the USSR, vehicles from the new nation can join the battlefield alongside history’s greatest war machines. Mercenaries work with what they’ve got, and these vehicles are brought to life using parts scavenged from other nations’ vehicles. The result is something unique, something new, something totally ready for any battle.
Earn Mercenary Vehicles with the Contract System
Traditionally, new vehicles must be purchased using XP and Silver earned from battles. The contract system is brand new to World of Tanks: Mercenaries, and lets you take on missions to collect parts and put together a new Mercenary vehicle. If you don’t fancy the grind, the contracts can be bought out for Gold – but the fun is most definitely in the thrill of the hunt!
Battle with Powerful New Crews and Commanders
Each Mercenary vehicle comes with a fully trained Elite Crew, consisting of incredibly powerful and skilled soldiers who are more than prepared to take on dangerous missions and deadly skirmishes. The first five Mercenary Crews introduced with the new tanks can be seen in our launch trailer for Mercenaries, from the erratic Crazy Snake to the furious Fallen Knight, and the bombastic Storm Hunter!
There’s a Whole New World Out There
World War II left a mark on our world that will never be forgotten, but in World of Tanks: Mercenaries, it went on even longer. When you earn your Mercenary vehicles, you can take them out and explore the new world, shaped and ravaged by years of war. Fan-favorite maps have been completely revamped to reflect the more unstable world of Mercenaries, with the serene Liberty Falls and a devastated Himmelsdorf playable in Multiplayer battles following the update.
Steal from a Coalition of Chaos in War Stories: The Heist
A brand-new War Stories campaign serves as the entry point to the Mercenaries universe. In The Heist you can embark on an action-packed mission full of espionage, nuclear tensions, and epic tank battles. The story-exclusive Trinity tank, helmed by a motley crew of mercenaries, is your vehicle as you take on a dangerous assignment. When a shadowy agent with atomic ambitions tasks our heroes with stealing nuclear material, they soon find themselves at the mercy of an unprecedented partnership between the United States and the Soviet Union. It’s an explosive, dangerous, and totally awesome way to get acquainted with the new world!
World of Tanks: Mercenaries is available to play for free now on Xbox One.
