Armored Warfare now in Open Beta

Hello Warriors,

Armored Warfare has driven into Open Beta!

The CEO from Obsidian, Feargus Urquhart has this to say:

"Armored Warfare heading into Open Beta is an incredibly exciting time for the team here at Obsidian.

We want to thank you, our fans and the community, for all their support, input and all the great feedback we've already received.

However, these are challenges that we are really looking forward to with Armored Warfare.

Getting to make the game better based how you play the game, and your insights, is something we have been looking forward to for months and months. And, while that is all going on we are continuing to move forward creating new maps, new vehicles, and some cool new features we will talk about soon. It's really an exciting time in Armored Warfare land right now, and for the months, and years to come."

WoT in PS4 Update

Hello Warriors,

The PS4 version of World of Tanks may very well come in the spring of 2016.

The Beta testing will take place around November/December and they will see what happens after that, the release is planned for next year.
WoT PS4 will have some exclusive content like maps and some other things they are not ready to talk about yet (ahem...ok. In a game that only has tanks as vehicles and maps to bring as "new content" I wonder what it may be. But lets not be mean and imagine some new mode perhaps. *insert donger face here*).

Other information of interest:
- There are no comments about World of Tanks being available for PS3 as well.
- The Developers don't exclude the idea of having other Wargaming games on consoles.

World of Papoj
