Mobile artillery moves to the next generation.

World of Tanks, the popular free-to-play tank skirmish title from, has arrived on the Xbox One.

The new version offers cross-platform play with the Xbox 360 release, allowing players to move freely between consoles without losing their progress, including achievements. Players can also compete with others regardless of console and even voice chat will be compatible across both systems.

A “Proving Grounds” mode has been added to both Xbox versions, as well. This single-player mode offers a way to practice with any of the player’s available tanks up against appropriately tiered AI opponents on eight different maps.

Speaking of maps, they are one situation where the Xbox One release isn’t yet up to speed. As maps are being completely rebuilt to take better advantage of the newer console’s graphical capabilities, there are some 30 maps yet to be made available, which is a fairly significant chunk of real estate. Wargaming has said they’re committed to getting these maps out as quickly as possible and, when they do, the same maps will get a small upgrade on the 360 version also.
