Please note that the Public Test Server will only become accessible on October 6 at 8 AM PDT.

The first of the new maps to be introduced in Armored Warfare: Global Operations is the open desert map called “Desert Crossing.” This map is bigger than any other map so far in Armored Warfare and features many interactive elements. Bombers flying overhead, AI-control turrets shooting at teams, and surveillance drones will change the face of warfare in the game for good. Two mercenary forces and their local allies are clashing over a massive dry dock with an aircraft carrier in “Desert Crossing.” The battles in Global Operations are time limited and feature up to 15 vs 15 player teams. Each team starts with a pool of points. Destroying Enemy or AI controlled vehicles and capturing control zones will reduce the enemies’ point count. If the team manages reduce this point score to zero, they secure victory!

Players can also capture special “Wildcard” objectives that give them the ability to call in military asset from their HQ, which will tip the balance of the battle in their favor. The first map contains the following “wildcards:”

  • Static AI-controlled object firing Anti-Tank guided missiles at enemy forces.
  • An unmanned aerial asset that can fly above a zone and spot the enemy teams movements with ease.
  • A powerful B2 bombing run attack that flies in from off the map to wreak havoc amongst enemy lines!
  • To allow resupply of ammo without needing to respawn.

These represent just what will be available during the first release. The system is flexible enough that many new “wildcards” could be created and will make the battlefields truly feel like theatres of modern war.

Armored Warfare is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online tactical military game that puts the player into the world of modern warfare. In Armored Warfare, players get a chance to try the most powerful tools of destruction invented by mankind – from modern main battle tanks to scouts and wheeled vehicles. Using modern defense systems like anti-missile protection and smoke grenades, along with various types of armor and ammunition, players can jump into fast paced battles both in PvP mode and a vast amount of PvE missions.

You can download the game for free and get more information at the official Armored Warfare website.
