Be Your Own Hero On Xbox 360

Everyone’s favorite free to play tank combat simulator World of Tanks is getting it’s “biggest update ever” this month, in the form of the Mercenaries update exclusively on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Wait, what was that last one? Okay.

The free update will add a brand new Mercenaries faction, new maps, and a three chapter campaign called “The Heist,” wherein players will be tasked with stealing nuclear materials for a client before facing off against the United States and the Soviet Union in hardcore tank on tank battle. The new Mercenaries “nation” comes with a full tech tree of tanks made up of scavenged parts of vehicles from different countries, with five vehicles available at launch and more “over the coming months.”
