Obsidian and publisher My.com are showing off Armored Warfare, the free to play tactical MMO that focuses on tank warfare. Although it still seems a little strange to see Obsidian take on a project like this given their past titles, each video they’ve released looks fantastic. Armored Warfare is being shown at E3, and a new video has been released showing off the role system and the types of tanks players will use in-game.

The last time I posted about this game was to show an engine video that focused on environmental destruction, and I questioned if the framerate would hold up when multiple tanks were added into the mix. Based on this video, it seems like the answer to that question is a definite yes and I can’t wait to see more. Registration for closed beta is open now and you can sign up here.

To celebrate the start of E3, award-winning developer Obsidian Entertainment has released a new gameplay trailer for Armored Warfare showcasing the new role system and the types of tanks players will command in battle in the team-based modern military vehicle combat game.

The roles of the Main Battle Tank (MBT), Recon and Artillery units in Armored Warfare will offer players an endless amount of strategies in taking on the competition in a given match. Players must weigh the cost-benefit of each role in every scenario. MBTs are bruisers that can dish out damage and take it, Recon tanks sweep swiftly throughout levels to help flank enemies and spot them for artillery strikes, while Artillery units rain destruction on enemies from a distance.

The action-packed trailer shows how each role can be used in battle while also demonstrating their weaknesses. Players must work together in every battle to rise to the occasion and take home the victory.
