Wargaming Launches World of Tanks: Mercenaries for Consoles Only

Ok Tankers, seems that the folks at Wargming has been pretty busy making some changes to the console version of World of Tanks, and now is the time for you to play. They have announced that the global release of World of Tanks: Mercenaries, an update that they say is not a small one, and it kicks off on consoles only today. World of Tanks: Mercenaries kicks off an explosive story campaign set in an alternate-history where World War II never ended. The new campaign features powerful new vehicles, unique hero crews, additional maps and more. 

World of Tanks: Mercenaries invites players to join a new fight in a world where history has been rewritten and lawlessness has taken hold. Endless wars have left the world fractured, and in the vacuum of power left by the destabilization of global powers, soldiers and civilians fight for themselves, taking up contracts to become soldiers of fortune. 
 
Combining the strengths of history’s most powerful war machines, the new Mercenary “nation” and Tech Tree were born. Mercenaries collect parts from captured and abandoned vehicles on the battlefield to create a new breed of tanks, giving players the opportunity to earn powerful, never-before-seen Mercenary vehicles through the brand new Contract system. Fulfilling certain in-game objectives, such as destroying a number of tanks from a specific nation in multiplayer battles, will unlock vehicles from the fascinating new armada 

World of Tanks: Mercenaries introduces a unique Mercenary crew with their own backstories, playstyles and specialized vehicle. Want to unleash a hellish fury on your enemies with a Japanese freedom fighter? Storm Hunter is your woman — she rides into battle in the furious Heavy Tank, Needle. How about pestering enemies with an erratic and aggressive barrage of shells? Crazy Snake is your guy — get him with the mighty light tank, Stubbs! Five vehicles are available at launch, and the Mercenary nation will continue to expand its ranks in the weeks to come.
 
A brand-new console-exclusive War Stories campaign — The Heist — kicks off the Mercenaries universe, joining an existing saga of epic story-focused alt-history PvE missions. The Heist is an action-packed tale of espionage that follows a motley crew of Mercenaries contracted to set up, execute and escape from a raid on a secret war facility. Their mission is to steal nuclear material for a client who harbors his own atomic ambitions, but the crew soon finds itself at the mercy of the combined powers of the United States and the Soviet Union.

The Mercenaries universe has a far-reaching impact across the entire World of Tanks game, with the addition of revamps to fan-favorite multiplayer PvP battle maps to fit in with the new world. Players can explore, fight through and discover the strategic intricacies of battlegrounds ravaged by war and time in eight new Mercenary-themed maps. World of Tanks: Mercenaries is the future of World of Tanks on home consoles. Expect more electrifying Mercenaries content in the future, including new additions to the Mercenary Tech Tree, new Crews, new maps and regular in-game events.
