Wargaming has announced that its quite popular free-to-play game World of Tanks is getting a single-player campaign next week, on August 22. The single-player campaign is called War Stories, with the plan being that players will be able to relive (read, ‘play’) historical battles, play through alternate histories and take part in ‘fantasy campaigns’. 

Players will be able to play the War Stories mode in single-player or cooperatively. Wargaming is also adding a new tank tutorial to help players get to grips with the controls and ease themselves into the game. This addition will be the first in a number of new campaigns that will be added to War Stories.

World of Tanks has primarily been an online competitive multiplayer title up until now. The addition of single-player modes is probably a result of  the deal Wargaming had made with Splash Damage. Wargaming teamed up with the Brink developer last month, and now we’re beginning to see the fruits of that partnership.

World of Tanks is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
