Perm, 24 th July, 2014 – AlternativaPlatform is thrilled to confirm plans for Tanki Online’s presence on the biggest stage in the world of videogames, gamescom 2014! The hugely successful 3D Tank Action browser game will be on show at the world’s premier videogames event at Hall 8, Level 1, Aisle B, Stand 030a.

AlternativaPlatform would like to invite all Tanki Online fans and gamescom attendees to join them at their booth for fantastic challenges, competitions and the opportunity to win big prizes!

The Tanki Online booth will house 18 game pods in a ‘free to play’ zone where fans will fight intense battles against each other. All game sessions will take place in deathmatch mode, forcing players to only rely on themselves and their skills in battle. Each pod will feature a fully loaded version of Tanki Online, with access to all items and fully upgraded gear. Players will be able to change equipment in battle and unlike on the public servers, will be able to do so as many times as they like with no delay.

AlternativaPlatform will also be hosting spot challenge tournaments, with a map change at the end of each session. These will be held at the AlternativaPlatform booth every two hours. After each session, all of its participants will be rewarded with branded T-shirts while the best players will be getting top notch gaming devices as prizes. Each tournament battle will be streamed live on the big screen in the middle of the Tanki Booth, where crowds of fans will be able to watch tankers from all over the world engage in battle.

Additionally, every single gamer who visits the Tanki booth at gamescom 2014, will get a badge and a lottery ticket. This ticket automatically enters them into the daily contest to win a high value prize! Winners will be selected at random by AlternativaPlatform.

The Tanki Online booth at gamescom will be located in Hall 8, Level 1, Aisle B, at Stand B-030a.
