World of Tanks Gets Its First Single-Player Campaign

World of Tanks Gets Its First Single-Player Campaign

Story of Tanks.

When World of Tanks went live in 2010, it quickly garnered a large userbase of heavy artillery fans. Though players have been content to aim their tank-guns at each other for years, they'll soon be able to turn their canons towards World of Tanks' first single-player campaign.

Today, Wargaming announced War Stories, an episodic, single-player story set to hit World of Tanks on August 22. War Stories lets players blast through fantasy campaigns and alternative histories, including all-out nuclear war ignited by the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

If you're not big on the idea of heading into the battlefield alone, you can recruit a friend to help you play through the campaign. Even new fish can attend World of Tanks boot camp with a thorough three-part training mission that teaches the basics of the game, as well as tank armor, sniping, scouting, and more.

Wargaming promises to add more content and campaigns to War Stories throughout the year. War never changes, and it also never ends.

World of Tanks is on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
