"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
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!
