It’s an open field, every man for himself, kill or be killed. Some are bigger, others are faster. Everyone’s a little different but the objective is the same: line ‘em up and annihilate! The trailer for Armored Warfare is out, but I’m not talking about the game itself. I’m referring to the competition between all the different tank MMOs.
In the past six months, I’ve played three others: World of Tanks, Tank Domination and Tanktastic. All are okay, none stands out. Is Armored Warfare the game changer? The trailer didn’t exactly knock my tracks off. It looks cool and the 3D “shattered world” seems to have more models to destroy or sweeten the eye than others, but it’s the same thing. Grab a tank – probably a crappy one to start – pay to upgrade or play a ton of hours to get something decent – and then drive around a map shooting each other or capturing the flag and so on. Ho-big-hum.
I’m hoping there’s some indie developer working on some new twist to the tank MMO and putting it up on Kickstarter. Need some serious disruption here.
Game’s out in 2014 and currently signing beta testers.
