World of Tanks
Developed by a Belarusian company, tanks are very much a part of the country’s history with it having, er, played host to some of the largest tank battles during World War II. World of Tanks is a third person massively-multiplayer-online shooter, with a number of different modes. At it’s most basic, two teams of 15 people must work together to capture the flag or base of the enemy - or simply eliminate all opponents. On top of this is a training mode, tournaments, and even the ability for players to form their own tank divisions and clans. There’s apparently over 240 realistic tanks available from the Soviet Union (remember them?), the UK, US, Germany, France and China - and the developers are still releasing updates to add more nations. So if you want to be an armchair general - this could be the game for you.
The endless battle between Sony and Microsoft often overshadows the games industry – but there’s one platform that is probably the most formidable gaming platform out there, yet often overlooked. The humble PC. Or perhaps, the not so humble PC judging by the rigs that some gamers have.
There’s so much available – including lots for free too – so here’s our pick of the best free PC titles.
