San Jose-based online game publisher,
today their upcoming online title for the PC, Tank Ace.
Scheduled to launch in early 2010, this unique third-person shooter
game will feature realistic World War II battlefields and vehicle stats
based on actual historical facts. The game will be free to download and
play and will officially launch in early 2010 with a beta test
occurring later this year. To learn more about Tank Ace and to get a
sneak peek at the game players can visit http://tankace.gamescampus.com.
In this action-packed WWII shooter, players will choose a historically
accurate tank and then customize it by adding additional armor,
different styles of camouflage, body art, kill marks, and clan
insignias. Featuring realistic WWII battlefields and historically
accurate specifications like realistic recoil action and tank tactics,
Tank Ace is all about winning battlefield strategies.
"With more than 10 years of experience in creating tank shooting games,
we have been impressed with BOB Studios’ work on this fantastic new
WWII shooter," said Jonathan Stypula of GamesCampus. "Tank Ace is
packed with some astounding features and offers an engaging battle
experience that is like nothing else available online today."
Players can gather up their friends and create their own clan to plan a
winning strategy. Cowboys that charge headlong into the fray will be in
for a rude awakening if they get picked off by an enemy that they
didn’t even see. Using terrain features like hills and trees to wait in
ambush, players can coordinate an assault with advanced pincer,
flanking, and other historically accurate tactics.
Tank Ace Features
Realistic tanks with historically accurate stats: Customize tanks by
adding additional armor, different styles of camouflage, body art, kill
marks, and clan insignias.
World War II Factions: Players can choose to join one of three
different sides from World War II: Russia, Germany, and USA. Each
faction gains access to a unique stable of historic tanks, uniforms,
and in-game items.
Ease of control: Using WASD controls, players will immediately be able
to control their tanks. The mouse is used to rotate the turret, aim,
and fire. Users can also select various views on the fly, such as the
Commander View, Gunner View, Driver View, and Scout View. Each view has
its own benefits and drawbacks. Choose the best one for the situation
you find yourself in.
It’s pure tactics! : Gather up your friends and create your best
strategy. Call in Air Support to scout out an enemy stronghold and take
them out. Use Field Artillery to soften up the opposition. Tired of
that barn hiding the enemy approach? Blast it away!
Area Specific Damage System: Tanks in Tank Ace have 10 hit areas, each
with a different defense rating. Focus on attacking areas with lower
defense ratings, or conceal those areas for defensive stances. Just as
in real life, the front of the tank is the most highly armored area and
the rear is vulnerable. If you really want to stick it to the enemy,
send a shell right up their tail pipe!
