Wargaming, the maker of the wildly popular World of Tanks online game, has launched its unified premium account for all of its titles.
The new service provides pay-one benefits that span multiple titles such as World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. It spares players from paying for premium status in every project and gives players an increased experience and credit accrual rate in-game.
While it may sound a little dry, the unified premium account isn’t an easy piece of software to create. It is an important backbone for the company’s efforts to build a series of titles that can be cross-merchandised.
“From the start, we’ve been dedicated to offering our players not only triple-A gaming experiences but also unparalleled value and convenience,” said Andrei Yarantsau, the vice president of global operations at Wargaming. “The launch of the unified premium account is our commitment to those ideals, and we’re confident that players will find it a major element of their Wargaming experiences now and into the future.”
World of Tanks has more than 70 million registered users worldwide. The Cyprus-based company is also working on World of Warships. Wargaming’s chief executive, Victor Kisilyi, will give a fireside chat at our upcoming GamesBeat 2013 conference in Redwood City, Calif., on Oct. 29-30.
