World of Tanks
has some gaudy user numbers. Even though MMO companies and PR firms are known for their Hollywood accounting
when it comes to player statistics, 24 million users is a lot any way you slice it.
It's not enough for Wargaming.net
, though, so the company is shipping its brand of lobby-based World War II tank action to Southeast Asia this week. The game is coming to Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand, and it's bringing its arsenal of more than 150 armored vehicles with it.
Local support, distribution, marketing, and operational concerns are in the hands of SEA Gaming
. World of Tanks
originally launched in March of 2011 as the first game in a planned trilogy of World War II-based action titles.
