World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition is a online-only multiplayer game. It is released several years after the PC game World of Tanks. It looks a lot like the PC version, but differs on some key elements.
The main gameplay is the same, two teams of fifteen tanks battle against each other in several different game modes. Game modes including a neutral base to take over, or two bases which must be defended and captured.
The player can use artillery, light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks and anti-tank guns from America, Nazi Germany and Great Britain. Updates later added tanks from France, Russia, China and Japan. Most tanks come from the World War II era, but several are from either World War I or were developed during the Cold War. Tanks are broken down in 10 tiers which all have their own skill range and thus, tier 10 tanks will never be matched with tier 5 tanks in a game.
Unlike the PC version, players cannot choose for specific tank upgrades. Instead, players buy a package with certain upgrades, choosing between a defensive or offensive package at the most. This Xbox 360 version also does not contain the same content as the PC version. Where this version features a lot less different tanks and less maps.The game is free-to-play, but micro-transactions in game can be made to upgrade tanks quicker or buy silver, exp. or new tanks.
