Perm, Russia, September 9, 2016 | Game developers AlternativaPlatform today announced their action-packed tank combat title - Tanki X - will enter Open Beta on September 15th, granting access to everyone who registers on the official website. There will be no more account resets, so from now on, players will get to keep their progress and achievements - even after the official launch.

Tanki X is all about fast-paced futuristic tank combat against real players. This is not some detail-heavy simulation with bricks for manuals and hundreds of statistics to memorize. Tanki X is easy to jump into, fun to play, and offers fast and furious gameplay with fully customizable futuristic tanks across a collection of exciting and dynamic arenas. 

Key features of Tanki X include:

  • Arm your tank with flamethrowers, railguns, shotguns and all sorts of other devastating weapons, all featuring unique mechanics. Blasting your enemies to bits will never get boring.
  • If your tank is destroyed (and it will happen often), don’t worry! You will respawn within a matter of seconds, right back into the heat of battle. No waiting, no travelling, no downtime. 
  • Turn up the heat with temporary power ups that can be picked up on random locations within the arena. 
  • Unlock upgrades to improve your tank's parameters and change its appearance. As you play more battles, cooler customizations and more powerful weapons will become available!
During its time in Closed Beta, Tanki X has rallied a large and engaged community. More than 50 million players from around the world have enjoyed its predecessor, Tanki Online -- many of whom are now looking forward to diving into new battles in Tanki X, which is a full PC game made with Unity, featuring stunning visual effects and a smooth, fast-paced gameplay. 

Loads of tank customization options, new maps and modules coming soon

Many exciting new features will be added during Open Beta -  including extensive options for tank customization via paints, skins and stickers, making each player's tank "their own" and helping it stand out on the battlefield.

New modules (turrets, hulls, etc.) will also be added during final development. These new components will help players design a tank for every role, be it an all-out assault vehicle, a sneaky sniper, an in-your face close-combat flamethrower, or a combat support tank. 

The developers will also release new maps, providing players with diverse battlegrounds and fresh challenges.

Many more improvements and new features will be added during Open Beta, for example, AlternativaPlatform will keep working to refine the matchmaking system to better enable quick battles with balanced teams, while adding lobbies for friends and pre-made teams who want to play together.

About Tanki X

By winning battles, players gain experience points and unlock more powerful equipment, making them deadlier in the arena. But in Tanki X, it isn’t just about who’s got the bigger gun... players need tactical prowess, skill, and nerves of steel to be victorious!

Players can build their tanks from a variety of parts, mounting gatling guns, flamethrowers, and other high-tech turrets upon a variety of hulls, such as the light and nimble “Wasp” or the impenetrable “Titan”, then pit their battle machines against tankers from all over the world. Matches can be played in teams or solo, including PvP modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag.
