Local is better.
World of Tanks Australian servers will be launched by Wargaming on 1 November, the publisher today confirmed.
Local servers will benefit both Australian and New Zealand players.
“Tankers can now storm the battlefield, roll in guns blazing and ambush their opponents’ quicker, making team combat more intense, fun and enjoyable,” Travis Plane, Wargaming Australia New Zealand Country Manager, said.
“A local server is the number one request from our community and we are finally rolling them out on November 1, from 6pm – 12am AEDT. It’s a long time coming but we hope that our players and the community can see that we’re truly committed to investing in Australia and New Zealand.
Jungwon Hahn, Wargaming Asia-Pacific General Manager, said the move was made to increase player happiness.
“The World of Tanks PC community is growing year on year, with over 130 million players worldwide. Some of our most passionate tankers are based in Australia and New Zealand and it’s exciting to be finally giving our community what they’ve been asking for,” Jungwon said.
Wargaming will celebrate the launch with player gatherings in Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne.
World of Tanks is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
