TOTAL TANK SIMULATOR Announced

Publisher 505 Games and developer Noobz announce TOTAL TANK SIMULATOR, a physics-based armored combat game coming to PCs next year via Steam. The Announcement Trailer offers a look at gameplay, which also includes aircraft and infantry, but apparently no textures. The announcement has more details on the game, and outlines a plan whereby the number of gamers who wishlist this will end up determining what sort of launch discount the game will carry:
A physics-based tactical World War II battle game at heart, Total Tank Simulator features more than 50 battle maps and hundreds of historical or classified units and weapons. In the role of a military Commander, players will deploy massive armies and leverage their fleet of tanks, planes, cannons and infantry to fight tactically through intense battles.

Three game modes will challenge players to use strategic thinking and unleash creativity, including Sandbox Mode, Shadow Mode (survival mode) and Campaign Mode, with six different playable factions permitted in each game mode. Players will battle through a carefully detailed and totally destructable experience across the burning sands of the Sahara Desert, the emerald green fields of Europe and the snowy plains of Russian Taiga, among other detailed environments ripe for total destruction.

A special pre-launch promotion on Steam for Total Tank Simulator from publisher 505 Games will allow the community of players on Steam to collectively play a role in determining the launch price of the game by creating wishlist tiers that unlock special discounts. In-game items will also be made available as each tier is unlocked.

  • Tier 1: 50,000 wishlists = Secret Weapons or Special Tactics units will be available for each of the original factions.
  • Tier 2: 75,000 wishlists = Secret Weapons or Special Tactics units + Officer Units + 10% release discount for one week.
  • Tier 3: 150,000 wishlists = Secret Weapons or Special Tactics units + Officer Units + 25% release discount for one week.
