Real war is not a game, say Wargaming.net and War Child

World of Tanks developer Wargaming.net and its charity partner War Child joined forced recently to remind gamers that real war is not a game. War Child, a U.K.-based organization, provides support to children in war-torn areas like Afghanistan, Iraq, Uganda and Syria. That support takes the form of education, protection, vocational training and more. Its Real War is Not a Game campaign aims to include "information about international humanitarian law, and about children in conflict areas on the website and in the manuals of every war simulation game." Wargaming.net's European director of customer relations explained that the partnership is a result of shared values. "We are consciously aware that in reality many children around the globe are affected by the horrific consequences of...

World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and Wargaming.net now share a single login

Wargaming.net is one step closer to creating a single universe of war games. This week the company behind World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships unified gamers' accounts across all three games. "Unified account. Unified economics. Unified gaming universe," the company's website now reads. "Wargaming.net offers a unique world of online battles and ultimate struggle for global supremacy." Wargaming.net's Victor Kislyi has long wanted to meld the different online worlds and accounts of his company into one entity. He talked about it with Polygon in 2012. This is, perhaps, the most mundane element of that move, but also the most important. With the transition gamers will have access to all of Wargaming's games through a single login and a single portal. A player's...

Wargaming looks to Total Annihilation, Master of Orion for inspiration

That doesn't mean the company won't ever step outside the realm of reality to create new sorts of gaming experiences, just that they are historic military simulators and any fictional world they create will never mingle. "I don't think we're going to move away from history accuracy where we make tanks with lasers or something arcadey," said Chris Cook, director of Wargaming.net's North American PR. In August, Wargaming.net acquired the intellectual property for Total Annihilation and Master of Orion from an Atari bankruptcy auction. At the time Wargaming.net's CEO Victor Kislyi said that the company is "more than willing to give a new lease of life to these games." The real-time strategy game Total Annihilation was developed by Cavedog Entertainment and released in 1997 for Mac and...

World of Warships removes Rising Sun flag after Korean gamers' outcry (update)

Wargaming.net has removed the Rising Sun flag of Imperial Japan from its MMO World of Warships after its South Korean audience spoke out against its use, reports The Korea Herald. The lastest trailer for World of Warships shows the flag amidst scenes of dogfighting and airborne firepower. The Rising Sun is the official insignia of the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force, but due to its use in World War 2 is still widely considered in Southeast Asia to be offensive and carries associations of Japanese militarism and imperialism. A group of Korean gamers who were uncomfortable with the flag's presence in World of Warships launched a campaign for its removal, collecting around 40,000 signatures from users for their petition. Shortly after, a Wargaming.net community manager took to the...

Wargaming axes pay-to-win model in favor of free-to-win

Wargaming, the developer of free-to-play online games World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships, is removing all "pay-to-win" elements from its titles and is shifting to a "free-to-win" model, Andrei Yarantsau, vice president of publishing told Gamasutra. All in-game components that are deemed to give a player an edge in a fight will no longer be available for purchase. Wargaming will instead receive revenue through vanity items and superficial customizations. The company believes that the loss of pay-to-win microtransactions will balance out with the free-to-win model. "The free-to-win concept is sure to enhance customer loyalty and attract new players to the game," Yarantsau told Gamasutra. "As for the company's economic efficiency, we expect no decline in profits....
