It might have released in 2010, but World of Tanks is making its way to retail – in physical form – for the first time later this month.
As part of a merch push, a collector’s edition of World of Tanks will be released on October 19. Priced at €159.99 (£), it includes a copy of the game, a 1/32 scale replica of the German Tiger 131 tank, and plenty of other in-game goodies like garage slots, repair kits, premium subscription and credits. It will be limited to 5,130 copies worldwide.
As well as the collector’s edition comes a bunch of new merch based on World of Tanks, with headsets, keyboards, mice and mousepads all making their way to the Wargaming Store. Created by Konix, the items come with in-game bonuses for new and existing players – and will be available as of October 22.
Third and finally, in collaboration with Cobi, a new tank will be relased – the Primo Victoria. This weapon of war will be tied in with Swedish power metal band Sabaton, and five figurines representing members of the band will be available alongside it.
Wargaming continues to go from strength to strength, and recently announced it will be opening a new UK-based studio to work on an Unreal-powered MMO title. Meanwhile in World of Tanks, the player count continues to be strong – earlier this year the console versions of the massively multiplayer tank-‘em-up had reached some 14 million players.
