Wargaming announced the start of the open beta weekend for World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition - this beta is available to all gamers with Xbox Live accounts, while those without it will be able to get in on the action for a 7-day trial period. As an added bonus to non-Gold account holders who may have already expended their 7-day trial period, the trial will reset, giving gamers an additional 7 days of playing time.
Further rewards will also be available to new and returning players for a limited time during the beta. All players who log in and play at least 10 matches on Saturday, December 14th from 3–6 p. m. (Pacific Standard Time) will receive 7 days of free Premium Account status (which provides a higher accrual rate of credits and experience earned during play) once the game officially goes live. More details regarding redemption of the Premium Account status will be provided at a later date. Players will also be able to take advantage of the "Invite a Friend" functionality via the game’s Platoons feature.
World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will be further updated with the brand-new United Kingdom tank line, adding to the game some of the most iconic vehicles from that nation including the Churchill, the Black Prince and the Matilda.
