Obsidian Entertainment's looking to break into the tank-fighting arena with Armored Warfare, today giving us a video look at gameplay action and three types of tanks.

The video highlights the recon, MBT, and artillery vehicles, with each vehicle fulfilling a different role on the battlefield. MBTs are your most traditional heavy tanks, built to dish out and take a beating. Recon tanks dart around the field, spotting enemies for their allies to target. And artillery reach out and touch someone from afar with high-explosive shells.

Also worth noting is the environments displayed in the video. Unlike its competitors, Armored Warfare will use modern fighting vehicles, and the cityscapes are similarly up-to-date. The gameplay looks similar, so will a modern focus be enough to differentiate Armored Warfare from World of Tanks and War Thunder? You can register for the closed beta and find out for yourself.

If this is another game with a WoT progression system shoehorned in, I ain't touching it. I've had enough of this broken tiered crap. It doesn't work when you group players from separate tiers together, which these games have a suspicious tendency to do.
