Wargaming.net is taking down servers for World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition later this week to prep the title for its move from beta to full release, according to a post on the developer's website.
Servers will be taken down on Jan. 29 at 2 a.m. ET and will remain down "for a few days" as Wargaming.net prepares for the game's final launch. During this time, players will be unable to log into the game and will be notified when they can resume play.
Wargaming.net notes that when servers go back up, the game will still only be available to beta participants; however, a number of features slated for the finalized version of the game will be live. These include in-game purchase options, game avatars and achievements. All game progress from the beta will be reset — including all XP, silver, gold and tanks earned during this time — but all tank awards can still be found in players' Garages.
Wargaming.net held its last open beta round for World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition in mid-December last year. The developer has yet to announce a final release date for the full version. For more details on Wargaming West's console version of World of Tanks, check out our feature from E3 2013 here.
