You know how it is, you’ve got your tanks over here. Your warplanes are all the way over there, and your battleships are nowhere to be seen. Why can’t all three just sit nicely together in a sort of unifying social online space? By which I mean to say: why can’t World of Tanks, World of Battleships and World of Warplanes re-align themselves and unite under a single service called Wargaming.net? Turns out there’s absolutely no reason why not, because that’s exactly what’s happening.
The glossy presentation above does an impressive job of explaining exactly how the three titles will be tied to one another. It’s essentially doing for the World of… games what Battle.net does for Diablo, Starcraft and Warcraft, turning your existing login into a Wargaming.net ID that will grant access to all current and future Wargaming games and applications. There are also some nifty security benefits if you want to give them your mobile phone number.
Wargaming.net also promises to usher in a shared economy between planekind, tankkind and shipkind, allowing the transfer of resources between the three games. They also mention a “single global map” joining players of all three games in a “common tussle”, which sounds intriguing. Common tussles are our favourite kinds of tussle!
