Day 1 Studios and Wargaming.net announced today three new episodes for World of Tanks' story-driven mode on consoles, whereby players can fight and rewrite history on three different fronts. The episodes are now playable for free in both single-player and co-operative online multiplayer on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. They call this trilogy Spoils of War and players will fight on three different fronts, taking control of American, Soviet, and German characters. The three episodes are detailed below:
"In Sieben Ritter, a small town on the German-Polish border hopes to survive in the crossfire for long enough to surrender to the Allies, but an incoming Soviet force may extinguish any hope they had left. Will Captain Karl Staupe and his Sieben Ritter refuse to answer the call to a final stand in Berlin, and instead stay and fight to save the doomed town? This chapter takes inspiration from the legendary 1952 Japanese film Seven Samurai, which sees a band of rōnin - samurai without a lord or master - fighting off a gang of bandits from a farming town.
The second chapter, The Connoisseur, stars Sergeant Frank Martinez, who is tasked by the Allies with destroying a cache of stolen art and priceless treasures. However, a band of German soldiers have also set their sights on the treasure and taken it for themselves. Sergeant Martinez gives chase, but can he succeed in recovering some of the world's most sought-after treasures before they're lost to the pages of history? 'Kunstschutz' was the German practice of preserving art during times of conflict. The Allies saw this as looting, and it was a major point of contention during and after the war.
The thrilling third and final chapter of the Spoils of War trilogy is set in a town on the German frontlines, where a Soviet artillery commander has been selling food on the black market to keep its people from starvation. Soviet high command has discovered the dealings, and scrambled an armored NKVD unit to restore order and bring justice. Captain Anatoly Petrov, risking capture and punishment for defying his superiors, decides to rebel against Soviet high command and fight back. Potemkin takes its name from the 1925 silent film Battleship Potemkin, which tells the story of the rebellious crew of a Russian battleship".
