World of Tanks’ Clan Wars mode coming to World of Warplanes

Friday, 24th August 2012 15:10 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

World of Tanks’ Clan Wars mode will be integrated with Wargaming’s World of Warplanes, according to game producer Sergey Ilyshyn, and the combining of the two games is just the start.

Speaking in a Q&A on the World of Warplanes website, Ilyshyn said the success of Clan Wars gave the developers the idea to incorporate all of their titles into the mode.

“After all, there was a big war fought for dominance in the air in WWII in real life,” said Ilyshyn. “So it makes sense to have this feature in the game as well.”

“And we even want to take it one step further,” added development director Oleg Gotnyam. “With the arrival of World of Warplanes, we’ll be able to combine the worlds of tanks and planes on the global map.

“Not only will plane fighters fight on their own in Clan Wars, but they’ll also be able to interact and influence battles fought on a combined world map that’ll be populated and played both by World of Tanks and World of Warplanes players alike.”

Ilyshyn said all three titles, World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships, could eventually be combined on one global map in Clan Wars, but for now, the developer is a “long way away from that.”

Keep hope alive and all that.

Thanks, PCgamesN.

    It’s a brilliant strategy, really. Make three games. Profit. Then put them all together and profit some more.

    World of Warplanes seems to be shaping up nice as well. They definitely know what they’re doing.

    It’s a shame the gold system is so prohibitive to the gameplay though.

    Are they any good DSB? I haven’t even tried them due to the buying stuff to compete.

    The games themselves are rock solid. I haven’t played a lot of Warplanes yet, but World of Tanks pretty much feels as good as any of the old tank games on the PC.

    Neither one tries to be a sim, but they do manage to make action gameplay feel authentic.

    The download is something like 8 gigabytes if I recall correctly, so it’s a doozy, but I would highly recommend trying it out if you haven’t.

    The progression is slow, and the start can be tedious. You start off with an ultra light tank, against other ultra light tanks, and then you can progress through the tank destroyer, artillery or tank tree.

    The tank tree starts you off as a scout tank, which means your role is being a speedy spotter, with no chance of taking out the battle tanks. It often feels like being cannonfodder, but you do earn your xp by spotting tanks for the other guys, and sometimes taking out other scouts. The scoring system is pretty impressive.

    Tank destroyers are slow, most often sacrificing turrets for a bigger gun, made for laying in wait and picking their shots. Artillery has a pretty awesome system, where you can look around the map and fire indirectly on tanks that have been spotted by other players. If they’re moving, you have to judge the time it takes for the shell to hit, which is awesome fun.

    Until you reach the point of depression at getting killed by the guys with premium ammo, it’s really great.
