Wargaming.net is Entering Korean Market


7th May, 2012
— Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame developer and publisher, announced today that the company is entering the Korean online game market in May opening its office in Seoul with Park Chan Guk as the Managing Director.

Together with establishing the new entity, Wargaming.net is bringing its highly acclaimed armored warfare MMO World of Tanks to the Korean gamers. The company has celebrated an effective start of operations in Southeast Asia and hopes that Korean presence will be as successful.

World of Tanks will be eventually joined by the company's other products, including two major titles from the MMO war series-World of Warplanes and World of Battleships.

"We are proud to announce that Wargaming.net is just a couple of steps away from establishing its Korean presence," said Wargaming.net CEO Viktor Kislyi. "Now that we're fully prepared to meet high expectations of the Korean gaming community, I don't see any reasons for World of Tanks not to become a success."

"I'm honored to become a part of Wargaming.net team," commented Park Chan Guk, Wargaming LLC in Korea Managing Director. "We've gathered a strong team of professionals in Seoul, who will help us reach all goals we've set."

About World of Tanks
World of Tanks is the first and only team-based, massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, the Soviet Union, and France, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrades and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.

But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In World of Tanks, it's all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own steel empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
