N4G.com just had Wargaming America’s Chris Cook come to their podcast to discuss the growth of Wargaming.net and their success with BigWorld-Powered World of Tanks.
“With the recent news of World of Tanks rolling over 40 million registered users, we talk with Wargaming America’s Chris Cook who talk about Wargaming.net’s humble beginnings, their transition into the free to play market, and finally to the top of the heap with only a single game: World of Tanks.”
The 7.5 update for BigWorld-Powered World of Tanks has been officially unleashed. While it was already out a few days ago for European players, those on the other side of the globe can now get their hands on it too.
We did a post on this update a while back, detailing how the update will accommodate just about any skill level and play style.
The official post from Wargaming.net on the matter can be seen here.
In the article, Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kisly added “[World of Warplanes'] budget after one year of development is already higher than all of the flight sims before it combined.”
It looks like this BigWorld-Powered title is shaping up to be to be a great airborne adventure, sparing no expense with the visuals according to Gamespy.
“The terrain I saw in the canyon and island maps looked terrific, with a nooks-and-crannies-level of detail that I was surprised to see given that Warplanes is still in alpha. This one should be a visual stunner by launch, especially for a free-to-play game.”
Wargaming.net is sure to have yet another another big success in their hands. We’ve seen it in action ourselves and the rumors of its awesomeness are not exaggerated.
Below is some alpha footage of World of Warplanes, see for yourself!
