Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy. A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace. But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win. Expand

    I'm having a great time playing World of Tanks, and that's not solely due to my affinity for the era. I truly appreciate playing a game that not only encourages strategy and teamwork, but also requires it for victory.

    PlayStation gamers finally get their chance to be a tank jockey in this enjoyable free-to-play shooter.

    World of Tanks appears pretty late on the PS4 but does it with style. Playing without paid subscription eventually becomes tiresome but there's a big advantage: you don't need to pay for the PS Plus service. Owners of Sony's console have finally received a free, well made, pretty and engrossing war game.

    Finally, the most successful console of the moment, PlayStation 4, gets World of Tanks. Wargaming adds here new content, maps, game modes and exclusive tanks. This version is fantastic, and it's free.

    The PS4 edition of WoT is the prettiest of all HD versions but upon arrival offers less vehicles than its siblings on PC, Xboxes and even mobile devices. [03/2016, p.57]

    The core gameplay is wonderfully realized, making this free-to-play game very much worth getting into. Be prepared to withstand temptation, however, for money is still the easiest way to get to the good stuff.

    If you're looking for a complicated game that will take a lot of time to master, then look no further, but if it's a pick-up-and-play shooter that you desire, then World of Tanks isn't Reich for you.

    A welcome surprise to see WOT on PS4. I logged a lot of hours on the 360 version, having several tier X tanks. The graphic and audio upgradesA welcome surprise to see WOT on PS4. I logged a lot of hours on the 360 version, having several tier X tanks. The graphic and audio upgrades for the PS4 are very well done. Despite my large garage of tanks on 360, I've made the jump to PS4 and am moving up the trees I did not play previously.

    For the new player, you really need to give the game some time. Initially I played for weeks before I even realized you can auto-throttle with L3, or zoom with R3. The game seems simple but really getting a hang of the mechanics and strategy takes time. Also picking the right challenges really helps progress faster in the early stages.

    The other aspect that makes WOT so fantastic is that the offering of Tanks on PS4 as of launch is only a fraction of the tanks that will be available in the months to come. Personally I can't wait until they drop the British heavies in there so I can rack up the hits on those bumbling Churchills.

    Only minor issue I have with the PS4 version is the inability to "mute all" via the option menu. I have a much higher opinion of my teammates when I don't have to listen to them.

    great multiplayer fun which doesnt cost a dime, u really dont need to spend any money to have a great tank in this game.

    and all those
    great multiplayer fun which doesnt cost a dime, u really dont need to spend any money to have a great tank in this game.

    and all those keyboard/mouse "cheaters" dont have an advantage here(muahahaha). one can rock with the gamepad as well no problem to compete, which makes this one by far the best multiplayer shooter game on PS4 imho.

    Highly addictive, youve been warned lol..

To start, the graphics andI first played this game on the Xbox360, and it was a really good game, but the PS4 version improved it a ton! To start, the graphics and performance greatly improved the 7th gen graphics. You can now see explosions in full 1080p 60fps! This is probably the best tank video game around! Controls are great, gameplay is fun, and it gives you lots of different modes to play and there's more than plenty tanks to play with and there's no pay-to-win, even if there is DLC. The only downside is is that updates take WAY too long. First, you need to download the update on your PS4 which takes long enough, then you have to install it in game which takes longer than installing the game. But this has been a problem for all consoles and there's a minigame you can play while you wait. Overall this is a really great game and is definitely worth getting Expand

Here i found the contrary, you can take your time, plan, i played 10 hours with 0$ spent and i'm progressing, no complain to be made it is a nice game (graphics/play...) and most important, very enjoyable. So bye star wars where no strategy or plan can be done and hello to world of tanks Expand
