World of Tanks Blitz is a free-to-play team-based MMO action game dedicated to fierce tank combat.

Drawing inspiration from World of Tanks, it introduces cross-platform tank combat for a variety of smartphones and tablets. With a roster of over 190 iconic armored vehicles, stunning graphics, intuitive touch-screen controls for tablets and phones, World of Tanks Blitz makes it easy to jump into short, action-packed 7vs7 tank battles no matter where you are.

The unified ID allow switching between platforms and devices while retaining in-game progress, while cross-platform support lets World of Tanks Blitz community play together on a single server.

Designed to take advantage of cross-device gameplay functionality, this new version of the smash hit mobile game will bring 7-vs-7 tank combat to Windows 10 mobile devices, tablets and PCs.

A variety of in-game interfaces and elements will also be reworked in World of Tanks Blitz on Windows 10 to ensure a true cross-play experience. Along with intuitive touch-screen controls for tablets and phones, World of Tanks Blitz is set to feature keyboard and mouse support for PC.

World of Tanks Blitz unleashes an action-packed event throwing newcomers from the acclaimed Warhammer 40,000 universe created by Games Workshop into battle. Players can lead the charge with indomitable Space Marines—the finest fighting force of the Imperium of Man. Taking part in “Macragge's Thunder” event starting today, recruits get their hands on two iconic vehicles: the Vindicator and the Predator, both sporting the colors of Ultramarines, one of the most famous Space Marine Chapters. Players can also earn the camo of two other Chapters of great renown: Imperial Fists and Dark Angels.

Armed with a huge mortar and protected by a bulldozer blade, the Vindicator is a reliable siege machine whose heavy rounds can obliterate the strongest fortifications, tearing cowering enemies of humanity apart. The Vindicator enters World of Tanks Blitz as a Tier VII Premium tank destroyer.

Predator main battle tanks formed the backbone of Space Marine armored forces in myriad battles on countless worlds, their shells piercing monster scales and demon skin alike. In World of Tanks Blitz, the Predator manifests as a Tier VII Premium heavy tank with solid frontal and turret protection.

To put the Vindicator and the Predator in their Garages and win a wealth of credits, tankers need to earn Ultramarines, Imperial Fists and Dark Angels Emblems in battles, and use these special currencies to complete three stages of “Macragge’s Thunder.” Going through the three additional stages will provide the most stalwart tankers with lots of assorted boosters, a load of spare parts and the camo of the Imperial Fists and Dark Angels for both Space Marine vehicles. During the event, Big and Huge Bonus Containers will offer a small chance to get the Ultramarines’ Vindicator or Predator outright.

“By launching the ‘Macragge’s Thunder’ event, we’re saluting all tankers and Warhammer 40,000 fans,” says Andrey Ryabovol, World of Tanks Blitz Publishing Product Director at Wargaming. “We know these two groups overlap—being brothers in arms and waging war unites World of Tanks Blitz and the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000. Now players can fight like the best Space Marines in World of Tanks Blitz and earn the privilege of driving the vehicles of distinguished Chapters—in the Emperor’s name!”

The “Macragge’s Thunder” event will run from October 17 to November 18. During the event, tankers can access the special “Macragge” map set on the home planet of the Ultramarines, and everyone’s Garage will look like a Space Marine landing zone from Warhammer 40,000 with scattered drop pods.

World of Tanks Blitz offers a roster of over 190 iconic vehicles from Germany, Great Britain, the United States, and the USSR that are divided into 4 different classes: light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks, and tank destroyers. Each class has its own set of strengths and weaknesses, giving a unique playing style to every model. Combined with a variety of battle arenas featuring rapid, action-packed, PvP combat, World of Tanks Blitz allows aspiring tankers to master their tactical skills, learn to take fast and calculated decisions on the battlefield, and team up in platoons with friends all across the world.

World of Tanks Blitz is optimized for a variety of Windows 10 devices, enabling players to fight together on the same servers regardless of the platform — iOS, Android or Windows 10. Windows 10 PC players will have a separate matchmaking queue from mobile gamers, ensuring they have an equal chance of victory.
