Obsidian Entertainment will launch a new free-to-play massively multiplayer online tactical military video game called Armored Warfare, according to its debut trailer shown during the 14th annual Game Developers Choice Awards tonight.

According to the game's description, the modern military MMO puts players in control "of some of the most incredible, modern destructive machines to grace a battlefield." The tactical military video game offers players the opportunity to participate in battles across cooperative campaigns and team-based matches.

Players will have the ability to hop into the cockpit of a range machines including armored general purpose combat vehicles, modern main battle tanks and long-range high-powered artillery. Users can also upgrade and conduct maintenance on their vehicles.

Cool, we need more tank games. I got burned out on World of Tanks. For some reason I was almost always matched with tanks 3+ tiers higher than mine so I literally couldn't scratch the paint on anything. It'll be interesting to see how this compares.

rinse and repeat eventually on this game also, after the no lifers get all the upgrades unlocked.

Obsidian? Tank game? Did I enter an alternate universe? That's really unexpected.

That is impossible. Can't be matched more than 2 tiers above (unless you're in a failplatoon, but then it's your fault - or in a scout tank, don't play scouts early on), and the matchmaker ensures that you get on top at least in... 33% battles?

I've spent a lot of time playing WoT since closed beta - it's a great game, but the devs really need some proper competition. AD could be a nice alternative, especially as WT:GF seems to be a bit too hardcore for my liking.

I wouldn't say it is impossible but it is unlikely. It does still happen though on the occasion.

Anyway I find WoT to be a pretty good game though currently taking a break from it(the grind gets tiresome). Would be nice to see some competition and a more modern tank game definately sounds interesting.

Right on with the match making assessment, he is probably playing scout tanks or something lol. I dont have a beta code for WT:GF but it seems to be a bit more hyper in terms of combat intensity, so I kinda want to try it out. This game looks to be promising just by the fact War Thunder and World of Tanks blogs are filling up with cry babies.

I'm in the GF closed beta, and the combat is not exactly more intensive. Atm it's all about one-shot kills and hiding in bushes - i hope they manage to balance it out a bit better before release, as i REALLY want to like it.

it'll be interesting to see what happens with this, wargaming became complacent because they had no competition so WoT stagnated...now WT:GT is coming out and WoT is finally making a move to update pretty much everything but i feel its too late.
maybe this will shake things up even more and push WT to stop with the perpetual beta cycles, etc.

Assuming he/she stopped playing before they reduced the tier spread, then it wasn't impossible at that time. It currently is now, and he/she is just out of the loop and hasn't played the game for over a year. Or like you said, playing a scout tank or failplatoon.

I concur, WoT needs some competition, all they've done is say "hey here's more for you to waste your life on by endlessly grinding.". They're taking too long to pump out content that refreshes and revitalizes the game, the last exciting update was physics, which it's been almost a year since they've added it. I got bored of the game, plain and simple, it had a ton of potential but they haven't been given a reason to try and make it better.
