Review: Armored Warfare
Armored Warfare is a Free To Play multiplayer tank combat simulator from Obsidian. Players have a wide variety of tanks, maps, and game modes to challenge their skills against others. Unlike previous tank-based games, Armored Warfare draws from modern-day vehicles, such as the American M1 Abrams and the Soviet T-80.
With an unstoppable force of the world’s most powerful armored combat vehicles at your disposal, take to the battlefield to wage war with over 100 powerful vehicles. Engage in furious player versus player tank combat, complete co-op missions, and dominate global war theaters ranging from scorching African deserts to the mountains of China, Russian tundra, and neon-drenched urban jungles.
Armored Warfare allows players to take part in both PVE scenarios and PVP battles that mix the usual eliminate opponents deathmatches and objective-based co-op and multiplayer modes. Players will take control of their own personal military arsenal and must maintain and upgrade their army. Forging relationships with corporations, contractors, and non-government suppliers allows upgrades to existing tanks along with access to new, more powerful machines and munitions.
Armored Warfare Gameplay
The MBT is the toughest class in the game, providing massive armor and deadly firepower in one package - but not only that: although its maneuverability may not be as good as that of other classes, it suffices to make this vehicle mobile as well. The MBT class is truly universal.
Light tanks are lighter but more mobile counterparts to MBTs. Where the MBT class is the hammer, light tanks are the daggers that stab into the flanks of their opponents. Their mobility is phenomenal and their firepower equals that of MBTs. Light tanks lack the armor of their heavier brethren, but they are extremely accurate when firing on the move.
Tank destroyers are fast and often wheeled vehicles with possibly the most powerful guns in the game. They can seriously threaten practically all the vehicles they run into - but beware: tank destroyers are lightly armored and have to rely on stealth to deal massive damage.
The AFVs are the scouts of Armored Warfare. They have an extremely good view range, are very fast and usually very hard to detect thanks to their generally small sizes. Their main role on the battlefield is to spot enemy vehicles for their teammates to target and destroy.
Self-propelled guns are the indirect fire artillery of Armored Warfare. They are the only class in the game that can fire beyond their line of sight and their guns are powerful, firing large high explosive shells with large splash radius. SPG players in the game can use a special artillery point of view that allows them to fire at the enemy even if the enemy is hidden behind cover.
