World Destruction League: Thunder Tanks last edited by Nes on 04/29/20 02:43AM View full history


WDL: World Destruction League - Thunder Tanks is a tank combat game developed and published by 3DO for the PlayStation in North America (on September 9, 2000) and Europe (on November 17, 2000). It was later released for the PlayStation 2 in North America (on December 20, 2000) and Europe (on March 30, 2001).

A spin-off of the BattleTanx series, Thunder Tanks brings the fast-paced tank combat of the BattleTanx games into a new environment based on certain televised Americana motorsport shows (namely monster trucks and demolition derbies). It is focused on multiplayer arena matches, similar to Turok: Rage Wars, Quake III Arena, and Unreal Tournament, and has a barebones campaign mode (where players participate in wasteland arena battles and attempt to win the Thunder Tanks Tournament of the WDL).

The game later received a handheld port for the Game Boy Color by Sunset Entertainment on December 12, 2000 (in North America) and April 6, 2001 (in Europe), changing it to a top-down perspective. The original game later received a aircraft-focused spin-off called WarJetz (or, in Europe, WDL: World Destruction League - WarJetz).
