Thunder Tanks bombard PlayStation

3DO Europe's "World Destruction League : Thunder Tanks" is due out on PlayStation next Friday, with a PS2 version set for a March 2001 release

With the destruction of the threads that hold together human society, and the consequent collapse of watching television and computer gaming as two of the world's most popular leisure activities, the survivors of a nuclear holocaust would no doubt envy the dead. Unless of course they came up with a new way to entertain themselves, involving two bloody big tanks blasting each other to smithereens in a no-holds-barred battle to the death.

Strangely enough, that's exactly what happens in 3DO Europe's "World Destruction League : Thunder Tanks", which is due for release in the UK next Friday on PlayStation. Featuring five post-apocalyptic arenas (including the soon-to-be-toppled tower of Pisa and Red-with-blood Square, Moscow), eight different gameplay modes, two player split-screen action, and a whole range of devestating weaponry and heavily armoured tanks to control, it certainly looks like a good mindless action game to take your mind off the end of the world. 3DO are also planning an enhanced PlayStation 2 version of the game for March 2001, by which time you might actually have more than a snowball in hell's chance of actually owning one of Sony's next generation consoles to play it on...
