Wargaming’s TJ Wagner to speak about disrupting the F2P console space with World of Tanks.

The Xbox 360 edition World of Tanks is the most successful free-to-play game so far released on home consoles, with over 4 million unique users so far.

With the game soon to roll onto Xbox One, TJ Wagner, Creative Director at Wargaming, will speak at next year’s Game Developers Conference on how the hugely successful free-to-play title was adapted for the console audience.


The talk will cover every aspect of World of Tanks, including mechanics, art style, UI, monetisation and infrastructure. Wagner will also look at the methods Wargaming use to nurture, maintain and grow the game’s playing community.

GDC 2016 will once again be held at the Moscone Center ins San Francsico from March 14th – 18th 2016.

Check out the show’s official website for more information.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
