WWE unveils World of Tanks mashup for PlayStation and Xbox

WWE is leaping into the ring with Wargaming’s World of Tanks video game with the launch of its Update 5.0 – Season One SummerSlam, that will see a new collection of Superstar Collector Tanks land within the game, each inspired by WWE Superstars including The Undertaker, Becky Lynch, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Andre the Giant.

Running from now until Monday, September 21, SummerSlam brings an exclusive new season pass featuring WWE inspired tanks, Superstar collectable crews, new garages and more to World of Tanks players on PlayStation and Xbox.

Players will also be given the ability to experience their own redesigned WWE Garage – including Superstar introductions for their vehicles, unique visuals for each Premium Collector Tank, and two sets of crew chests that will include the aforementioned five Superstars and Legends to start in addition to Roman Reigns, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels in August.

Update 5.0 will also introduce cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users, giving players the opportunity to pit their skills against one another in an expanded player base with quicker matchmaking speeds across all tiers. For real-time-strategy fans, the popular Commander mode returns allowing players to get a different angle on the intense tank fighting and tactics.

TJ Wagner, executive producer of Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore, said: “The update 5.0 and launch of Season One is probably the biggest one our team in Chicago has done in a couple of years. Partnering with WWE has been a fantastic experience and is bringing unique new content to our players, who can expect more updates like SummerSlam in the future.

“With update 5.0 e’re very excited to be able to address many player requests and desires for our game like cross-play that unites PlayStation and Xbox tankers, to make match making faster and better.”
