World of Tanks has seen itself garner a positive reaction from the gaming community, as is evident by the fact that within 5 days of its release it has already amassed over 1 million downloads, according to the game’s publisher, Wargaming.

World of Tanks released worldwide on January 19th for the PS4. You can read our review here.
