Wargaming today announced the free-to-play multiplayer game World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 will offer a three-day Open Beta, running December 4–6. The Open Beta coincides with the PlayStation Experience weekend, taking place December 5 and 6 at the Moscone Centre in San Francisco, CA. Event attendees can play World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 for the first time in North America at Wargaming booth No.1200.
Exclusive in-game items await those taking part in the three day Beta event. All players who login during the Beta period will receive a PlayStation 20th anniversary exclusive M22 Locust US light tank, adorned in a tribute PlayStation grey colour scheme honouring the original PlayStation along with a special emblem.
Pre-Release bundles will become available in the PlayStation Store which include a free T1E6-PS US Premium light tank with exclusive camouflage and four Founder’s Packs with special Premium tanks available for a limited time.
World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 continues Wargaming’s multi-platform expansion by delivering an array of new features to the battlefield. The game will support key platform features including complete DUALSHOCK 4 functionality, Share Play and PlayStation Vita Remote Play, along with optimised controls designed to elevate the handheld experience. Two limited time exclusive maps will also be making their PlayStation 4 debut during Beta: “Ruinberg”, and “Scorpion Pass”, the largest World of Tanks map to date.
World of Tanks on PlayStation 4 is free to all PlayStation accounts and does not require a PlayStation Plus membership to play.
In the run-up to the Beta, players can also view the very first episode of Developer Diaries for PlayStation 4, showing a behind-the-scenes look at how the team brought the game to Sony’s console.
