The console versions of Wargaming's top two titles are both getting some love this Thanksgiving week. World of Tanks: Mercenaries is celebrating the season with the 4.12 update, which goes live today and provides the usual bug fixes, as well as a game mode selector if a limited-time game mode is on the table.
It arrives alongside a slate of Black Friday sales, which offer 75% on various bundles and savings of up to 50% off premium time. You can see the full list of sales here. Later in the week, three limited-edition tanks -- the Ragnarok T-34-100, Hydra IS-6, and Minotaur KV-5 -- will available from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2.
In December, Wargaming will bring back popular events, such as Commander Mode and Toy Tank Mode. In one last bit of holiday goodness, the Wargaming team raised $16,649 for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals during the recent Extra Life 24-hour marathon. You can add to the total by donating here.
Across the sea, in World of Warships: Legends, cross-platform play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 has been enabled, which Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi called "just the first step in our cross-play efforts." The press release points out that Legends is the "first Wargaming title to implement cross-platform functionality," so Kislyi might be talking about the possibility that other games in the Wargaming library going cross-platform in the future. This week's update also added the first season of ranked battles and a number of new maps.
Legends also has Black Friday sales, though it's taking the name literally by offering up three ships painted black -- the Scharnhorst, Warspite, and Atlanta -- as well as offering up special black containers for 1,000 doubloons each. You can learn more about the update and the Black Friday deals on the Legends Facebook page.
