World of Tanks Open Beta Launch Date Announced
Wargaming.net announced today the official open beta launch date for its highly-anticipated free-to-play action-MMO game World of Tanks, scheduled for January 27th, 2011.
Over the past six months more than 260000 players took part in the closed beta fighting around 2 million battles and destroying 40 million vehicles with peak concurrent users number surpassing 20000 people.
