World of Tanks Coming to Steam

World of Tanks is rumbling onto Steam later this year, offering another way to play Wargaming's armored combat game. This post explains all, including how this will support cross play with other PC platforms, but will require the creation of a new account. According to their Steam FAQ a release date will be revealed at a later time. Here's the overview:
World of Tanks has a lot to offer to players. With 160 million registered players worldwide, the game is available and supported in 35 languages in 4 regions: CIS, Europe, North America, and Asia. There are more than 600 vehicles of 5 types across 11 nations available in the game. They have all been authentically recreated based on authentic blueprints and museum pieces, and offer a wide variety of playstyles. World of Tanks has many modes, a dynamic meta, an active player community, and busy clan life. The content available to players is extensive and continues to grow. Large-scale updates with new armored vehicles, mechanics, and modes are released on a regular basis. In-game events such as tank races, football tournaments, and even rock concerts are held. The graphics, physics, and sound are constantly being improved. For example, the game moved to a new graphics engine and received a new orchestral soundtrack in 2018.

When the game launches on Steam, you'll receive access to all its content. After you've created a new account and completed a short tutorial, you'll be able to fight with millions of tankers from the already existing servers. When you log into the game for the first time, one of the game regions will be selected for you automatically depending on your location. You can change it if you want, but your progress in the game will start from scratch. The game will be updated via Steam, and you will get access to all new content simultaneously with other players from your region. You can also interact with players from other PC platforms without any limitations, such as adding them to your friends list, fighting together in a Platoon, or joining a clan.
