World of Tanks Tank Football 2016 Event Underway

June 10, 2016It’s time for kick-off in World of Tanks. The special Tank Football 2016 event is now live, so lace up those boots and take to the battlefield in 3-vs-3 matches. Putting its own twist on the beautiful game, two teams race around the pitch to be the first to score three goals in a seven minute match.

Tank Football 2016 is scheduled to run for around a month. During the event, all players will be credited the unique T-62a Sport (T-62a S) with a free Garage slot. To join the event, all you have to do is select your T-62a S and click the Battle! button.

“You may think Tank Football 2016 is a reincarnation of what we had a couple of years ago,” said Anton Pankov, World of Tanks Global Publishing Producer. “However, the game has gone through a lot of changes since then. Tank Football 2016 sticks to the classic 3-vs-3 format, but the new game physics give you a lot more control to pull off great moves. With a new overtime mechanic implemented, games are now even more exciting because there’s no chance of a draw. Every match will have a winner.”

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Space Marines Fleet Screenshots

June 9, 2016 – Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, the RTS videogame adaptation of Games Workshop’s classic tabletop game by Tindalos Interactive, showcases the upcoming Space Marine fleet with new images! The Space Marine fleet will be available on June 21, and will be playable in the multiplayer modes of Battlefleet Gothic.

As announced for several months, the Space Marines faction – as well as the Tau faction, currently under development – is free to all Early Adopters of the game on Steam. The Early Adopter offer applies to all Steam pre-purchase owners and people who buy the game during the first two months of the game’s release – untilJune 21. Players now only have 12 days left to purchase their Early Adopters Edition of the game and receive for free the Space Marines and the Tau factions. Players who will purchase Battlefleet Gothic: Armada after June 21 will be able to purchase the Space Marines and The Tau as DLCs.

The Space Marines are the greatest of humanity’s warriors, fierce warriors that have been subjected to intense training, genetic modification, and psycho-conditioning. Their fleets are experts at close-ranged battles, sporting well-armoured ships and specialize in aggressive boarding techniques. In addition, they have access to two unique faction traits which make them immune to insubordination mechanics and give them the ability to prioritize their attacks on different subsystems when boarding.

The Space Marines DLC includes 5 different Space Marine chapters including the Ultramarines, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels. Today’s images show off the Dark Angels and the Space Wolves.

The secretive Dark Angels hold traditions and rituals that date back to the earliest days of the Imperium – they were the first Legion, and one of the most powerful. Every single Dark Angel wishes atonement for a great sin their brothers committed long ago on their homeworld, Caliban. These monastic Space Marines have only a single goal: To eliminate the Fallen Angels, the Dark Angels that have given in to the temptations of Chaos during the Horus Heresy.

Space Wolves are savage. They accept who they are, fierce warriors from the land of Fenris, proud of their anti-authoritarian ways. A mutation in their gene-seed makes Space Wolves who bear the “Curse of the Wulfen” transform into wolf-like mutants.

More info about the Ultramarines, the Imperial Fists and the Blood Angels will be communicated in the coming days.
