Of all big machines capable of destruction, tanks have been the toughest. While drones, missiles, big guns, etc. have their own appeal, no one can deny that tanks are game changers in wars. Tanks are perfect boys-toys, and though all of us cannot join the armed forces, video games could help us feel the experience.
Free Tank warfare & battle games for PC
Interestingly, Microsoft Store has plenty of tank warfare games, some with graphics comparable to their Xbox One counterparts. Here’s a list of free tank-warfare games from the Microsoft Store. Some of them have an excellent storyline and graphics.
1] Tanks World Clash:
I would start this list with the easiest of tank-based games – Tanks World Clash. The cartoonish game is perfect for kids. It involves miniature tank warfare and is somewhat a platformer game. The player needs to understand projectile motion and point the cannon of the tank accordingly to target and destroy the enemy. As tanks clash, you will rise through the levels. Download the game from the Microsoft Store here.
2] Tank Battle 3D Conflict:
Tank Battle 3D Conflict has average graphics but a worthy story. The gameplay assigns you the role of a tank sergeant. The scene is of a sandy desert in Africa. The character needs to destroy all enemy tanks and clear the area. As you win in the game, you rise through the levels. The game gets tougher with each level. Tank Battle 3D Conflict is available on the Microsoft Store.
3] Tank Assault in City:
The storyline of Tank Assault in City is similar to that of most other tank warfare games, except that the arena is a city instead of a battlefield. You need to destroy enemy tanks. While the ammunition is unlimited, the tank health is not. So, in order to save yourself in the game, you would need to attack your enemies before they attack you. Move swiftly and clear the area to score better. More could be checked about the game on the Microsoft Store here.
4] Grand Tanks:
The reason I love Grand Tanks is that the make explosions look realistic. The graphics are above average, not great, but the thrilling sounds compensate for the same. It has different arenas including snow lands, fiery lands, grasslands, etc. The models of the tanks used range from those used in the World War 2 era to present. While Grand Tanks doesn’t have a specific story, the motive is clear – protect your country. The game is available on the Microsoft Store.
5] World of Tanks Blitz:
World of Tanks Blitz is perfect for those who wish to play the game endlessly. It has no fuel limitations, no ammo limitations, and no time limitations. Use any of the tanks from Germany, Japan, USA, and the USSR across the 26 different battle arenas. The game has many difficulty levels and is one of the most extensive of games in this list. It uses real-life physics, nothing unnatural, thus making the gameplay seem even more real-like. The game could be downloaded from the Microsoft Store here.
6] Armada: Modern Tanks:
Armada: Modern Tanks is the first game in this list which has actual 3D graphics. The arenas include locations from around the world. Basically, the teams are structured such that every team represents a country and various countries are at war against each other. The game has an online community, and you could play against players from the rest of the world. Communication is allowed with players of the same team, and the game has different modes. Play it after downloading it from the Microsoft Store here.
7] Tank Battle 3D: World War:
Not to be confused by the name, Tank Battle 3D has nothing in 3D. However, it is a game worth playing. The gameplay involves two teams: a green team and a red team. Both are at the battle against each other. You need to choose one side and destroy the other in order to win gold and advance through the levels. Get the game from the Microsoft Store.
8] Metal Force: 3D Multiplayer Tank Shooting Game:
One reason I included Metal Force in this list is that it has realistic arenas with a lot of destroyable entities. There’s a huge selection of maps and many options to camouflage. The sounds are realistic, and so is the bombardment. Check more about this game in the Microsoft Store.
9] Tank Force: 3D Tank Game:
Tank Force was the reason I fell in love with tank warfare games in the first place. It has the most realistic graphics in this list of games. The gameplay involves warring in different war zones and destroying enemy battle tanks. The gaming arenas are different geographical locations across the globe. The game is available on the Microsoft Store here.
10] WWR: World of Warfare Robots:
World of Warfare Robots isn’t exactly a tank warfare game. It involves life-like armored robots who are at war against each other. Basically, the theme is similar to that of the Transformers animated series. The destruction is satisfying and if you like it, download the game from the Microsoft Store.
