August 29, 2013 — Wargaming, the leading free-to-play developer and publisher, today announced the official launch of the Unified Premium Account, marking an important phase in connecting the company’s current and future titles.
“From the start we’ve been dedicated to offering our players not only AAA gaming experiences, but also unparalleled value and convenience,” said Andrei Yarantsau, VP 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.”
Now live in World of Tanks and World of Warplanes, the new service spares players from paying for premium status in every project, spreading its benefits across other company’s titles and providing players with an increased experience and credit accrual rate in-game.
