World of Tanks on console adds all new War Stories

Wargaming has announced that console players of World of Tanks, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 are getting three all new stories for the game.

The new War Stories are known collectively as the Spoils of War trilogy, with all three new stories set against the backdrop of an alternate history where World War II never ended. The year is 1948, and the world grows desperate and weary after years of endless fighting. In these new War Stories, players will be thrust into action on three different fronts to fight as American, Soviet, and German heroes. Contrary to previous adventures, Spoils of War sees the playable characters acting on their conscience and moral obligations, even if this goes against their orders.

In Sieben Ritter, a small town on the German-Polish border hopes to survive in the crossfire for long enough to surrender to the Allies, but an incoming Soviet force may extinguish any hope they had left. Will Captain Karl Staupe and his Sieben Ritter refuse to answer the call to a final stand in Berlin, and instead stay and fight to save the doomed town? This chapter takes inspiration from the legendary 1952 Japanese film Seven Samurai, which sees a band of r┼Źnin - samurai without a lord or master - fighting off a gang of bandits from a farming town.

The second chapter, The Connoisseur, stars Sergeant Frank Martinez, who is tasked by the Allies with destroying a cache of stolen art and priceless treasures. However, a band of German soldiers have also set their sights on the treasure and taken it for themselves. Sergeant Martinez gives chase, but can he succeed in recovering some of the world’s most sought-after treasures before they’re lost to the pages of history? ‘Kunstschutz’ was the German practice of preserving art during times of conflict. The Allies saw this as looting, and it was a major point of contention during and after the war.

The thrilling third and final chapter of the Spoils of War trilogy is set in a town on the German frontlines, where a Soviet artillery commander has been selling food on the black market to keep its people from starvation. Soviet high command has discovered the dealings, and scrambled an armoured NKVD unit to restore order and bring justice. Captain Anatoly Petrov, risking capture and punishment for defying his superiors, decides to rebel against Soviet high command and fight back. Potemkin takes its name from the 1925 silent film Battleship Potemkin, which tells the story of the rebellious crew of a Russian battleship.
