Tanki X rolls into Steam on April 20th. Fire at will!

Fast-paced multiplayer action Tanki X launches on Steam.

AlternativaPlatform, the developer of Tanki X, announces the cross-platform integration between the existing desktop version of the game and the Steam client. The game, which is currently in the open beta stage, will launch in Early Access on April 20th. We’re expecting to see even more players participating in furious battles on futuristic tanks, all sharing the same servers!

«This is an important and exciting moment for the company. Steam users are very diverse in terms of demographics and game preferences, so we expect to attract a broad audience to Tanki X, - says Vladimir Beletsky, the product manager of the game. – It is really important to get feedback as we continue releasing updates and optimizing Tanki X. Knowing which are fun and which are the disturbing parts of the game, will allow us to improve it more effectively and accelerate the development process, as a result».

The tanks in Tanki X are much different from those you’re used to seeing in other titles of the same genre. These metal machines are not hiding in bushes or travelling across the map to find a single enemy. Instead, they use all of their futuristic armor technologies to get in the heart of the battle and fight for as long as it is possible. When tanks are controlled remotely, there’s no reason to worry about it being blasted. Fast maneuvers, lots of explosions and jumping off the roofs — that’s what Tanki X is about. Every player can assemble their own machine by combining hulls, turrets and modules that give special active or passive abilities. Should you play with a flamethrower and a light hull, whirling around your ‘snails’ enemies, or pick a sniper railgun and an armored body to feel protected — that’s for you to decide.

Tanki X went into open beta on September 15th, last year. Since then, the game has had hundreds of updates with optimization tweaks and new features. AlternativaPlatform believes that the current state of the game is good enough to have it launched in Early Access and invites everyone to join the heated battles — easy, quick, and free!
