Tank Commanders!

It's time to introduce a whole new way to do battle. World of Tanks Generals, the newest upcoming game by Wargaming is almost ready for release, but we need able-bodied leaders like you to participate in its first Closed Beta Test! Are you up for the challenge?

What is World of Tanks Generals?

World of Tanks Generals is a free-to-play, turn-based collectible card game featuring epic World War II warfare. With over 200 unique cards to collect and crush your enemies with, each battle turns into an intense combination of sudden strikes, massive onslaughts and cunning tactical trickery in highly dynamic 1-on-1 online combat.

Choose from three different factions (USA, Germany and USSR) and their complement of card types to outsmart your enemy and dominate the battlefield, including headquarters, tanks, artillery, orders and squads, as well as special bonus cards that grant additional firepower or defenses, adding an extra dimension of strategy to gameplay.

World of Tanks Generals will be available on supported web browsers during the Closed Beta Test. In the future however, the game will also be available on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets.

The Closed Beta Test for World of Tanks Generals will begin soon, but you can already sign up to be a tester right now! To apply to be a Tester, simply visit the Generals portal here and fill in the application form.

  • 3 gift cards exclusively for Closed Beta Testers (Tetrarch, T37-A and 'New Year Gifts' order card)

PVP and PVE modes

Along with the usual 1v1 PvP battles, World of Tanks Generals also offers a series of training battles against AI opponents. PvE mode is an opportunity to master game basics such as movement, attack/counterattack, orders drawings and squad mechanics.


Achievements are awarded to players for exceptional battle effectiveness and are divided into the following classes:

  • Battle achievements (10 types during Closed Beta Test) that are awarded for outstanding results in individual battles.
  • Step achievements (5 types during Closed Beta Test). The requirements accumulate through the player’s entire history, battle after battle.

The most active Alpha testers will receive unique medals for their assistance in the development of World of Tanks Generals.


Players can place their order for one of the special bundles that includes gold bars (premium currency equivalent to 'gold'), premium headquarters and cards. During the test, they’ll receive tokens - the premium currency used in the Beta Test - instead of gold bars specified in the bundle description. After release, they’ll be given gold bars listed in the bundle description.
