Wargaming.net’s online multiplayer war shooter World of Tanks is heading to UK retail next month, courtesy of publisher Deep Silver.
MCV can reveal that the PC title’s UK release date is November 11th.
The Russian version of World of Tanks arrived first in 2010 and the European and North American releases followed earlier this year. Today it has over 5m registered users worldwide.
It’s a previously download-only game that uses a free-to-play payment model, where users can spend real money to speed up their progression and customise their tanks.
World of Tank’s retail SKU is priced at £7.99. It includes additional in-game currency, the possibility to play the game with a premium account and the German PzKpfw 38H735 tank.
The game will be distributed by Koch Media in the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Nordic countries, Benelux, Spain, Portugal, Greece and France. Deep Silver is Koch’s games publishing label.
“This special edition and its bonus content will offer excellent value for money for new players and established fans alike,” said Koch’s CEO Klemens Kundratitz.
Wargaming.net’s general manager Mario Baumann added: “We are very happy to have such an enthusiastic and professional partner in Deep Silver.”
