In World of Tanks 30-player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles. The game features more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War: light, medium, heavy and super heavy tanks, tank destroyers, self-propelled howitzers and rocket artillery. The game includes American, German and Soviet tanks.

World Of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

Ride the legendary Tiger tank, or choose the fast-and-furious Soviet T-34, practice your sharp-shooting skills with the American 155mm M40 Gun Motor Carriage or try experimental/prototype machines such as the Germany's monstrous Maus tank. A Player can have an endless number of tanks in "garage", and all machines can be upgraded in dozens of ways: better turrets, chassis, guns, engines, radios, various ammunition types, plus tank crew members can be leveled up as well.

Wargaming announced the launch of the Wargaming supported WG mod, allowing players to broadcast their gameplay from the World of Tanks and World of Warplanes clients directly to their channel on Twitch, the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers. Now the intense online battles of Wargaming’s PC titles can be streamed from desktop to Twitch viewers with one simple click.

Since the launch of WG Stream, the total number of broadcasts on World of Tanks and World of Warplanes channels on Twitch has doubled, while the number of spectators watching those has increased by 18%.

“Wargaming has consistently created stellar content which the Twitch community has embraced,” said Brooke Van Dusen, Director of Business Development at Twitch. “As testament, World of Tanks has been regularly featured on our monthly list of top games, so this integration should help propel these titles even higher up the charts.”

“We are excited and proud to deliver WG Stream, a new tool that enables Twitch integration with World of Tanks and World of Warplanes,” said Mike Turner, VP of Business Development at Wargaming. “The ability to stream the explosive action of both titles to the legions of Twitch viewers is important to Wargaming. WG Stream gives our pilots and tankers the ability to broadcast their biggest victories to millions of viewers worldwide.”

The WG Stream mod has been designed with both novice and experienced gamers in mind. The incredibly accessible interface allows players to take gameplay and footage from the garage, assign hotkeys to manage the stream, and offers a variety of settings to optimize stream quality. The mod will continue to update and add additional features to improve the Wargaming live stream experience.
