Armored Warfare - PAX World Premier Public Gameplay Footage

This is the official footage from AW so worth taking a look, note its pretty much the same footage I have already posted previously but a bit nicer looking etc….

Also some comments below from AW taken from the facebook page:

The closed beta will start early next year in the first quarter of the year (January-March), so make sure to sign up over at

We have not yet revealed how customization will work in Armored Warfare and will reveal more information on this as we get closer to the beta!

Site Update

So I couldn’t recover any of the backgrounds I had saved up for the Wednesday Wallpaper when my computer crashed but have gone and found some more so I will be queuing them up for at least the next 12 months over the next few weeks so expect it to continue for the time being.

Still no clue on when I will start posting the videos on youtube, had to send the chip back to manufacturer for replacement and only got that back a week or so ago so need to complete the build of my new computer. Hopefully “touch wood” it all works and I can then put my focus back to creating some video content and make more of a focus on War Thunder Ground Forces as well.

Up to nearly 50 followers now which is exciting, otherwise not too much going on, I will be attending PAX in Melbourne in October so expect some updates on that as well.

Enjoy and follow ! ;)

Armored Warfare Pics from PAX Live Stream

Here are some pics from the livestream at PAX thanks to Comp4ny on the AW forum for these.

The screen is looking very busy indeed, but considering its still Alpha I guess we need to hold judgement for a bit longer. I still cant help but think it looks a little to “WOT-ISH”…
