seemed to come out of absolutely nowhere doing its own thing and getting rich while doing it. Starting in 1998 and making its mark with the flagship World of Tanks
franchise, the developer-publisher has since released more than 20 titles across all major platforms and shows no signs of slowing as we mark 25 years of outlier business and unique gameplay and service offerings.
To celebrate the milestone, Wargmaing has decided to serve up a number of promotions for its dedicated and loyal fans and those who might just be starting out their gaming tenure with the company.
- From August 2 to August 8, Steam players can enjoy limited-time promotions:
- Free anniversary DLCs from the flagship Wargaming titles
- A special anniversary multiproduct bundle "WG25: 4-in-1" consisting of powerful vehicles, days of Premium Account, customisation elements (available at a huge 90% discount)
- A special 70% reduction will be offered on the World of Tanks/World of Warships anniversary cross-product bundle
- World of Tanks PC players can partake in a 25th anniversary-themed event to earn credits, different types of combat ratio, decals, emblems, day of Premium Account and more
- World of Warships captains will be able to get extra economic bonuses, signal flags, and other gifts by completing a series of special missions
- World of Tanks Blitz offers a dedicated “Wargaming Turns 25!” quest with a legendary anniversary avatar as one of the rewards
- World of Warplanes presents a chain of battle missions that will bring great prizes and a unique emblem
Wargaming also reminds us that it continues to support the embattled people of Ukraine
, most recently donating $250,000 to the official fundraising platform, United24
(hit the link to show your support if you can also).
"Back in 1998, I could hardly imagine that we would grow from a small group of friends united by our love for creating video games into a truly successful global company," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “Today we celebrate not only our achievements but also the shared journey with the gaming industry, our talented employees, and our passionate players. Here's to the next chapter, as we will continue to create unforgettable experiences to gamers across the globe. Happy Birthday, Wargaming!"
Over the years we've had some great chats with Victor and the broader Wargaming team and would like to wish them all a happy 25th anniversary.
