World of Tanks: 360 Edition

Wargaming's ridiculously popular multiplayer title pushes onto the 360.

Wargaming's push from PC to the 360 is so important that Microsoft spent a big chunk of its E3 conference and Xbox One party discussing the future 360 title. But for such a popular title that involves millions battling online, there must be a long Beta to insure that the game can handle the demand.

Those interested in trying the beta should head over to http://www.worldoftanks.com/Xbox, but be warned, Beta sign-ups may be at an all-time high with the upcoming Big Bonus Weekend.

This weekend there will be two Tanks up for grabs, the M22 Locust, and the Ram II. Participants need to log 50 battles during this weekend's event for the M22 Locust, and manage to get 10,000 players online simultaneously to net the Ram II. Netting ownership of these tanks will carry over beyond the Beta, when hte game launches in full.

Those new to the beta will find that this weekend there is a five times XP multiplier for the first victory of the day for each tank model, and 2,500 Beta Gold for testing out the in-game purchasing system.
