In 2014, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition rolled onto Xbox as of one the first free-to-play games on Xbox 360. The expansion into the console space continued as the game became available on PlayStation in 2016. Over the last decade, the game has continuously evolved, with its latest iteration, World of Tanks Modern Armor, arriving in 2021. Under its current moniker, World of Tanks Modern Armor offers over 1,000 tanks and features the vehicles and technology of the World War II and Cold War eras.

“Ten years ago, World of Tanks made its debut on Xbox, delivering one of the first free-to-play games for consoles,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “I extend my heartfelt gratitude to players worldwide who have enjoyed our game and contributed to its development, and a special acknowledgment to our studio in Chicago, whose commitment has made this journey possible over the past decade. As we stand at the brink of the next 10 years, rest assured, we are gearing up for even greater adventures and big plans. ”

The celebration of World of Tanks Modern Armor’s 10-year anniversary will last throughout 2024! The festivities kicked off on February 7 (AEDT), when new Celebration War Chests made their debut, and all players were invited to participate in the Anniversary: Big X Community Op that can result in them earning two free tanks: the new Lago M38 and the classic T-34-88. Additional 10-year Celebrations rewards will become available starting on February 14 (AEDT), including Garage Gear, and – just for veteran players – a free or heavily discounted Tier X MBT-B tank.

The game’s celebrations also include the ability to earn monthly 10-year Celebrations rewards tied to special themed events. Accessed via the exclusive Celebrations companion website, the year of challenges culminates in the ultimate prize of two yet-to-be-revealed Premium vehicles: a World War II tank and a Cold War tank.
