Want to experience exciting tank battles on your PC or Mac and go against players who take to the battlefield on phones and tablets? Now you can! World of Tanks Blitz, the free-to-play game that features 7-vs-7 tank battles, has just been published on Steam.

"With the game already available on Windows, Google and Apple stores, Steam was a natural step," said Andrey Ryabovol, World of Tanks Blitz Publishing Product Director. "We want to give our players freedom when choosing where, when, and through which channels they want to play World of Tanks Blitz. We’d like to welcome our new players and encourage everyone to join in and have fun battling across iOS, Android, Mac OS X, and Windows devices."

World of Tanks Blitz is separate from the free-to-play World of Tanks game that is already available for PC. Here's the quick lowdown. Wargaming ported World of Tanks to mobile, naming the game World of Tanks: Blitz. Then it made that mobile port available for PC and Mac desktops, by releasing Blitz on Steam.

World of Tanks Blitz – Main Features
  • Over 200 iconic vehicles from Germany, Japan, France, the UK, USA, USSR, and China.
  • 4 different vehicles classes including light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks, and tank destroyers.
  • Strategic 7-vs-7 online multiplayer gameplay.
  • Cross-platform gameplay. Choose to battle players on a single platform or go for a mixed-platform matchmaker.
  • 18 unique battle arenas.
  • In-game chat functionality.
  • Innovative crew upgrade system.
  • Constant graphical enhancements and updates, as well as optimization for various platforms.
  • Real-life physics to create authentic tank movement and damage mechanics.
  • Detailed tutorials.
  • Ability to invite your friends to play online.
  • In-game achievements.
  • Free-to-Play with equal access to in-game elements for paying and non-paying players.
  • Easy to learn, intuitive controls.
  • Battle Missions that open up fresh, personalized challenges of varying difficulties and enable players to earn bonuses and achievements.
  • Clan functionality allowing players to unite in their pursuit of victory.
  • Training Rooms that allow you to team up with friends to master game maps and tactics.
  • No matter which device you use, all your game progress is saved via your Wargaming.net ID.
Get World of Tanks Blitz for free from Steam.

To celebrate the Steam release of World of Tanks, the developer is offering special, never-before-seen tanks for a limited time. And more to the point, it’s offering these three new tanks in the Premium Shop:
  • The Panther 8.8, a tier VIII medium tank with solid armor, great gun handling and surprising speed. Just don’t get hit in the front hull, because it might set the tank on fire.
  • The VK 45.03, a tier VII heavy tank with lots of HP but weak armor.
  • The Großtraktor, a tier III heavy tank with good armor and plenty of HP, but slow reloading and gun handling.

To commemorate the Steam release of World of Tanks, the developer is offering one more thing: a special Steam camouflage called "Breakthrough." This rare camo can be purchased with gold from within the game, anytime from now until November 18.
