London, UK, Paris, FR and San Francisco, CA (15 th August, 2011) —Wargaming.net is proud to announce that World of Tanks action MMO has won the “Best European Online Game” title at the European Games Award (EGA). The list of nominees for the award included such notable projects as EVE Online: Incursion, Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, Runes of Magic — Lands of Despair.
The European Games Award is the top award for European video and computer game developers. Since 2010 the ceremony gathers game development professionals and players from all over Europe to decide the best games of the continent.
“It has been hard and rewarding to develop and publish World of Tanks and it adds merit to our work by winning this award,” says Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. “We want to thank the players for enjoying our game and the game industry for the recognition in our hard work.”
World of Tanks is the first and only 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.
A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade 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 armored 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 favorite strategy to build your own steel empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
