It was announced today that the free-to-play multiplayer game World of Tanks on PS4 will offer a three-day Open Beta, running December 4–6. The Open Beta coincides with the PlayStation Experience weekend, taking place December 5 and 6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. Event attendees will have a chance to play World of Tanks on PS4 for the first time in North America.
Exclusive in-game items await those taking part in the three day Beta event. All players who login during the Beta period will receive a PlayStation 20th anniversary exclusive M22 Locust US light tank, adorned in a tribute PlayStation grey color scheme honoring the original PlayStation along with a special emblem. Pre-Release bundles will become available in the PlayStationStore which include a free T1E6-PS US Premium light tank with exclusive camouflage and four Founder’s Packs with special Premium tanks available for a limited time.
The game will support key platform features including complete Dualshock 4 functionality, Share Play and PS Vita Remote Play, along with optimized controls designed to elevate the handheld experience. Two limited time exclusive maps will also be making their PS4 debut during the Beta: “Ruinberg”, and “Scorpion Pass”, the largest World of Tanks map to date.
World of Tanks on PS4 is free to all PlayStation accounts and does not require a PlayStation Plus membership to play.
