World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition Map Madness

By Andrew Ogley, 2 years ago
Fans of the online multiplayer shooter World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will be interested to know that the folks over at are about to launch a community challenge for the title.

The limited-time community campaign, entitled "Map Madness", will challenge players to reach cumulative tank destruction goals. As the global community achieves each of the three kill targets, a new map will be unlocked for the game.

Before you all get too excited, you might want to check out those quotas from the developers below. The targets are in the millions, so there is certainly some work to be done.

Starting March 18th and running until March 24th, tankers around the world will be able to unlock the following maps:

· Lakeville—unlocked when 10 million cumulative tanks destroyed.
· El Halluf—unlocked when 25 million cumulative tanks destroyed.
· Prokhorovka—unlocked when 40 million cumulative tanks destroyed.

The urban Lakeville is a deeply strategic location where the careful use of buildings and cover become the ultimate key to team success. The desert-based El Halluf provides a plethora of key strategic ambush spots for careful players. Prokhorovka, a classic battle arena from the PC version of World of Tanks, combines both open space and an urban setting to create an extremely balanced map, incredibly popular with eSports players.
World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition is available for free from the XBLA marketplace. Xbox Live Silver members receive access for seven days, whilst Gold subscribers can play for an unlimited time.
