E3 2014: Obsidian Unleashes Armored Warfare Roles Video
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.
