Tanks "coming soon" to the iPad
Posted by Tobold's Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 November 2013, 1:30 am
I was reading an article on Pocket Tactics about World of Tanks Blitz, the official iOS port of World of Tanks for the iPad (careful, there are some fake World of Tanks games in the App Store). The article said "The multiplayer-only game drops players into deathmatch teams of 7 (as opposed to the 15 vs 15 battles on PC), so clearly there‚Äôs no immediate plans for cross-platform play". And a day after that I get a mail from Wargaming.net announcing, who would have guessed it, a new 7 vs. 7 mode for World of Tanks. So maybe it will be cross-platform after all? Normally cross-platform games run into problems because the interface on one platform works better than on the other, e.g. mouse working better than gamepad for a shooter. But World of Tanks is slow enough to possibly work for that.

Then I also got a mail announcing a new game from a different company: Tank Domination for the iOS. I'm not sure how good all of this will run, but it appears that tanks are rolling towards the iPad from all directions.
