Perm, 24th March, 2014 – Tanki Online, the action browser game by AlternativaPlatform (one of Russia’s leading developers for massively multiplayer online games), is making huge incursions into Europe and is now headed straight across the frontlines of UK browser gamers. With no need for installation on any machine, the award-winning tank action game only takes a few seconds to unleash the big guns and let shells fly on every Internet browser. Since its Russian launch in 2009, Tanki Online has enthralled over 41 million registered users worldwide.
The pioneering technology that allows Tanki Online to play so seamlessly with no need for installation has not gone unnoticed! AlternativaPlatform have received several prestigious awards including ‘Best Technology Award’ at the Russian Developer Conference KRI in 2009 and the 2013 ‘Runet Prize’ from the Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
Fast, explosive, intense
An intuitively simple control system utilising just a few keys allows gamers to manoeuvre around arenas easily and keep a cool head even in the most heated battles. You don’t even need a mouse!
In Tanki Online, you have the choice of four addictive game modes: Death match, Team Death Match, Capture the Flag and Control Points. The latter two modes place an emphasis on tactics and cooperation. In every mode, the gameplay is fast, thrilling and characterised by tactical elements.
When an opponent destroys your tank, you return to the battlefield in a matter of seconds - the game flow is never broken and the level of action is on a constant high. Tanki Online deliberately does not feature AI-opponents; every tank is manoeuvred by a real human player.
Customisation and upgrades
With over 70 maps, (which can be transformed into winter scenarios with the push of a button), Tanki Online offers an incredible range of environments to do battle in. Creative players can also use an external map editor to design their own arenas.
Players are given the choice of up to nine turrets to equip to any tank which include weapons such as futuristic rail guns, flame throwers, freeze guns and two-barrelled plasma blasters. For every weapon, there are four modifications that boost capabilities and change its look.
You can also choose from seven tank hulls each with varying attributes for movement and armour as well as various paint jobs that give further protection against certain weapons. Every vehicle can be modified to fit the player’s preferred game-play style as well as personal taste.
For every successful battle, Tanki Online rewards the player with experience points as well as crystals (in-game currency). The more experience a player gains, the higher he is promoted in his military rank. Players can also purchase crystals to upgrade more quickly. As the mightiest weapons only get unlocked in higher military ranks, ‘pay2win’ scenarios with players buying victories in real currency are impossible.
Tanki Online also offers a micro upgrade feature, which allows for incremental upgrading of turrets, hulls or paint jobs. Each item can have several upgradable parameters that take real time to complete an upgrade. Players can choose to speed up micro upgrading through in-game purchasing.
