Wargaming's hugely popular and rather massive World of Tanks has hit Xbox 360 properly today, giving Xbox Live Gold members the opportunity to blast one another while riding around in a variety of heavily armoured military hardware, for free.
Silver Xbox Live account holders can enjoy a 7-day trial period in World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, providing ample opportunity to get to grips with the custom built controls and Xbox Live features such as Friends, Parties, Achievements, and a new interface designed purely for the large screen experience on your telly box.
World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition also includes in-game purchases, enabling players to nab premium tanks, consumables and boosters, among other things. Two special 'Founder's Packs' can be purchased between now and February 28th, containing two special tanks, resources and items at a reduced price.
Founder's Pack 1 contains the US Tier VII T23 medium tank, an extra garage slot, 17 premium ammo rounds, 100% crew, ten small repair kits, ten small first aid kits, ten manual fire extinguishers, an exclusive gold star emblem and 30 days of premium account status for the price of 6,700 gold. 40% less than the usual cost.
Founder's Pack 2 includes the German Tier V PzKpfw V-IV medium tank, an extra garage slot, 19 premium ammo rounds, 100% crew, five small repair kits, five small first aid kits, five manual fire extinguishers, an exclusive black star emblem and 7 days of premium account status for the price of 3,400 gold. That's also a saving of 40%. Buying both packs will also bag you the bonus Russian T-127 light premium tank.
Featuring over 100 tanks from the US, Germany and the UK, and seven maps in which to do battle, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition is available now.
