In Search of Recruits: World of Tanks Released on Steam, But You Can’t Move Your Existing Account There
Back in early February of this year, Wargaming announced its intention to release the shareware tank action game World of Tanks on Steam. And today, on April 29, it was released on the Valve site.
After uploading the project to Steam, users will have to create a new game account. You will not transfer an existing account since World of Tanks was not created for simultaneous distribution on several PC platforms. When you first enter the game through Steam, the system will identify the user to a particular region. It can be changed, but all progress during the transition will be reset. Separately, the developers clarified that newcomers who download World of Tanks on Steam would have access to all content: a large fleet of vehicles, locations, modes, and timed events.
The release of the tank action game on the Valve site was commented by the General Director of Wargaming Viktor Kislyi: “I am proud that World of Tanks has been making our players happy for more than 10 years. “Tanks” is not just a game for a long time. It is a favorite hobby of millions of people worldwide who have formed an incredibly close-knit community over the years. I am delighted to see the growing fan base of our game, and I am delighted to welcome recruits from Steam! “
Currently, 160 million accounts are registered in World of Tanks. In addition, the game boasts 600 units of military equipment from 11 nations.
