What’s more fun than warfare in video game form? Armored warfare in video game form! Ideally, that’s what the Armored Warfare PlayStation 4 release will provide players of the console as the online multiplayer tank shooter has officially made its arrival starting today.
Armored Warfare lets players hop into a variety of armored vehicles ranging from battle tanks and light tanks to tank destroyers and armored fighting vehicles. Play modes include PvE co-op missions, PvPvE Global Operations where players can call in AI support while holding capture zones, and an expected team-based PvP mode.
While the game will be arriving free-to-play for PS4 owners – including those without a PS Plus membership – interested players can get one of four Starter Packs that offer items and vehicles. PS Plus members can also claim a free bundle with an LAV-150 90 sporting a unique PlayStation-themed skin, a day of Premium Account time, 500K game credit and 500 gold. Plus members also get access to three-day rental of several vehicles and a 20% discount on Starter Packs.
Interested players can learn more about Armored Warfare’s PS4 edition here or they can watch a trailer for the console release below.
Obviously, the very first question that springs to mind is whether or not a free-to-play Armored Warfare experience is balanced against those who either buy one of these Starter Packs or otherwise are subscribers to PS Plus. That said, we also have to figure that an action game like Armored Warfare will play well on a PS4 and with the console’s controller. In any case, we hope those who are excited for this game’s PS4 arrival have a tank-blasting good time.
My.com’s online tank combat title has made its way to the platform that a whole lot of other PC games are on now. In other words, an Armored Warfare Steam release has been officially announced along with a new update that features a new map, new features, and more.
The update in question is called “The Art of War” and features a new map set in the rural part of southern China, as well as a selection of new Chinese vehicles to choose from such as the Zhang Feng Main Battle Tank, the Tier 9 Type 99A1, and the Tier 10 Type 99A2.
The update will also introduce an update to the Commander System, which promises “a more complex, sophisticated system” that will let players better customize their Commander to suit their chosen playstyle.
The update will also offer improved graphics, a new version of the Waterway map specifically designed for the game’s Global Operations mode, and adjustments to vehicle mechanics. More details can be read on the website and a new trailer for the Art of War update is available below.
Expanding any multiplayer game, as ever, is going to be a good idea, and it sounds like the Art of War update will be making some much-needed and desired changes to Armored Warfare. We hope new and existing players are looking forward to the update.
