Console players have been able to enjoy their own distinct version of World of Tanks for some time now, and World of Tanks: Mercenaries is the latest iteration of the game. Our hands-on impressions detailed the brand-new Mercenary faction that joined nearly a dozen different nations battling it out with some of the greatest war machines from modern history. The newest version of the game went live on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in late June. The trailer for this upcoming event can give you an idea of what to expect there:
