London, 15th June 2012. Wargaming.net, the award-winning game publisher and developer announces that following last year's success, they are again to be the official games sponsor of the 10th annual Tankfest, one of the most established annual British military history shows bringing the story of tanks and soldiers to life. It will take place at The Bovington Tank Museum, from June 30th till July 1st. Wargaming.net will be on hand with their world-famous free-to-play MMO World of Tanks, one of the largest virtual examples of WWII era steel armour.

Tankfest presents a wide selection of modern and historic moving armour displays, living history, family entertainment and explosive mock battle demonstrations. The show has become popular with both the enthusiast and the casual visitors.

"This will be the second time World of Tanks is participating to this event.  Last year's show was truly amazing - not just for the amount of people that came to our booth, but for the variety of community players from all around Europe who came to spend time with us" said Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. “And with over 10,000 people watching thrilling World War II tank-on-tank battles, the Tankfest is the best place to start your tank experience. It will be great to have a chat with our fans at this truly special event.”

World of Tanks is the first and only team-based, massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armoured 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 armoured vehicles from America, Germany, the Soviet Union, and France, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrades and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armoured forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace. But being a great tank commander alone isn’t enough to win! In World of Tanks, it’s all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favourite strategy to build your own steel empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
