World of Tanks XBOX vs. World of Tanks PC

This site was established to support the World of Tanks XBOX community. World of Tanks has been well established now on the PC platform for quite some time with plenty of information and websites to support the PC version of the game. However there are distinct differences between the World of Tanks PC version and World of Tanks XBOX versions of the game:

  • Package System - The PC version contains individual modules that can be separately researched / acquired for each tank. The XBOX version uses a simpler (and better) system whereby modules are packaged up for research. Each tank has anywhere from 1 to 7 packages to research. Use the Tank Profiler to view and compare packages
  • Crew - On the PC version each crew member of a tank can be trained. On the XBOX version this is not the case and instead the entire crew is represented by the Commander
  • Maps - Not all maps available on the PC version are available on the XBOX and vice versa
  • Game Modes - Not all game modes including Clan Wars, Strongholds, etc. are available on XBOX
