World of Tanks PC is marking the biggest footballing event with the return of Tank Football. This time the mode features three specialist roles and Gianluigi “Gigi” Buffon as a commentator. The metal machines are ready to tear up the pitch, go for glory and be crowned victorious, all while the Italian legend gives a running commentary of a game.
The legendary goalkeeper is an intrinsic part of Tank Football, he’ll be sat in the commentary box as the official voice. That’s not all, he will also cheer the players on throughout the match.

Tank Football 2018 is a return to 3 vs 3 matches where everyone is vying for glory. These matches take place in 3 special arenas, including one inspired by Moscow’s biggest stadium and host to the final, the Luzhniki. Three unique tanks, all with their own specialist roles and abilities on the pitch, are ready to be crowned champions. So whether players like to play up front or from the back, there are roles for everyone.
A winner will be announced if at the end of 7 minutes of play or if a team scores 3 goals, whichever comes first. In case of a draw, a version of Golden Goal will play adding up to an extra four minutes for either team to bag the winner. If there is no goal scored during the additional minutes, the winners will be the first team to have 100 possession points in the enemy’s half.
