Wargaming has announced that its free-to-play MMO World of Tanks has set a new record in Russia. On January 19th, the gamers playing concurrently on the Russian cluster reached over 1,114,000 million.
Andrei Yarantsau (Wargaming VP of Publishing) said:
“In 2013, we put a great amount of effort into growing World of Tanks, enriching it with new gameplay features and content. Tankmen on the Russian servers all play at different times of the day and although their overall number has long since surpassed several million daily active users, the PCCU has been hovering around 900,000 gamers for the past few months. Finally, we’ve breached the one million mark. We are set to scale even greater heights with considerable improvements planned for World of Tanks in 2014”.
Combined with players from across the globe, virtual tank users mass over 75,000,000, a number that is growing fast. Check out the screenshots below and head over to the official site to see what all the fuss is about. Hint: It’s tanks.
