Today Wargaming celebrated the launch of the Xbox One X by announcing that World of Tanks is now playable on Xbox One X in 4K resolution, with the addition of several further improvements.

According to the publisher, this is the “biggest graphics leap” for the game, also including full-range HDR, increased draw distance, improved shadow resolution, and faster load times.

In addition to that, the game comes with cross-play across all Xbox consoles, from Xbox One X, all the way down to Xbox 360.

Wargaming’s Chicago-Baltimore studio Creative Director and Executive Producer TJ Wagner accompanied the press release with a statement.

“We are honored that World of Tanks is one of the launch titles today on the Xbox One X. The capabilities the new platform offers has allowed us to make World of Tanks look and play better than ever before on Xbox. Our team has been hard at work to enhance every aspect of the game, and we are looking forward to how the game will keep evolving on the platform to give the best tank gaming experience out there.”

To celebrate the update, new players will be able to get a free World of Tanks X Edition Starter Kit, which comes with the American Tier II T1E6-X1 Light Tank, a 100% Trained Crew, a free Garage Slot, and 3 Days Premium time.

On top of that, Wargaming will sell the appropriately-mnamed Xbox Scorpion Bundle, including crew customization vouchers, Premium Time, XP Boosts, and an M56 Scorpion American Tier VII Tank Destroyer.
