Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our main objective in Tanki X development is the satisfaction of our players. Unlike other tank action games, our project does not pretend to have realistic military or battle elements, and can’t be called a simulator. We want our audience to experience the same joy that we’ve experienced playing the tank arcades on consoles, back in the 90’s.

Our main vector of development is that the battles must be fast, saturated, and unordinary. We understand that we will need to collaborate closely with our players in order to reach this goal. Of course, we have a lot of ideas ourselves, but every one of them will be subject to a decision within our community.

Therefore, we’re inviting you to join the Tanki X community and help us make a stunning tank action game that goes beyond its genre!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is planned to be released by the end of 2017.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The released game will include more features which will significantly change the gameplay, adding fun and depth to it, as well as providing comfortable conditions for the players, by fixing bugs and optimizing the game.

Here is a list of things that we’re planning to have in the released version of the game:
  • Team lobby
  • Ranked matches
  • Clans
  • New game mode
  • New modules
  • New maps with interactive elements
  • More skins for hulls and turrets
  • Stickers on tanks
  • Avatars
  • Fixed bugs and physics errors
  • Server and client optimization

And we are not planning on stopping. The game will continuously improve and new features will be added, and with every update, new ideas will be born, some will inspire new features, others will improve the old ones.

The community is an inexhaustible source of ideas. We are sure that thanks to your feedback and suggestions, we will always find something to add or to improve.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current condition of Tanki X gives the player the exact feel of the fast driven battles on futuristic tanks.

  • You can choose to battle in one of the 3 available game modes (DM, TDM, CTF) on 9 maps of different design and size.
  • Our servers handle several thousand simultaneously playing users.
  • The tanks are assembled with the help of 11 different turrets, 7 different hulls and more than 10 modules with different mechanics.
  • The appearance of the tank can be customized with more than 50 skins, 50 paints, and 13 ammunition effects.
  • The equipment is balanced (the balance is adjusted with every update release)
  • New updates are implemented every week
  • New and unique content on every major celebration event.

In time we will add new game features such as ranked games and clans, which are meant to give the game more depth and meaning, but you can already get familiar with the basics of the game and form an opinion about the project.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“No, after the release, Tanki X will remain a free to play game.

Besides that, all your in-game progress and purchase history will be saved through the release of the game. We won’t reset or roll back your ranks, not your equipment upgrades, and the composition of your garage will remain intact.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Tanki X is an unusual representative of the tank action game genre, but we believe that its unusualness defines its uniqueness and that will allow it to take a good spot on the market and attract a wide audience.

We very much rely on the kind of users that will immediately get interested in the concept of our game, its core gameplay or its visual style. We’re hoping that they will be the first to install the game and help us figure out what exactly in our game triggers the fun and satisfaction of our player, and what does the opposite. Having determined the tastes and the needs of our players will help us define the future of our project’s development, set priorities and increase our chances for success.

This is the reason why we’re asking for feedback on every released update, and regularly ask our community to take various surveys, both major and minor studies on various game-related topics.”

Patch Notes 16.02.2018 - The Hydra season

Greetings, tankers!

The third season ended this morning. The fourth season already started, the Hydra season, and with it, a lot of changes to the game. We strongly believe that these are positive changes. Give it a week try, please.

Unified play modes into ranked play.
  • Quickplay and ranked play are now unified. The following game modes, TDM, CTF, and Cosmic battles, are now part of ranked play.
  • The cosmic battles have a lower chance of being selected for a battle.
  • DM (Deathmatch) is temporarily removed from the game, but it will be added to ranked play later in the season.
Teleport charges removed.
  • The teleport charges were completely removed from the game and ranked battle has become free.
  • Upon entering the game the first time after the update, you will see that all the charges that you have yesterday were converted into Crystals at a 1 to 5 conversion rate.
  • Premium account now offers 500 Crystals daily instead of teleport charges.

Changes to league reputation ranges.
  • Bronze league reputation range has been widened, from 140-599 to 140-699.
  • Silver league reputation range has been widened, from 600-1999 to 700-1999.
Reduction of player's losses in ranked play.
  • Players in the Training and Bronze league will earn reputation at a 100% increased rate.
  • Players in the Silver league - at a 50% increased rate.
  • Players in the gold league - at 33% increased rate.
  • We want to remind you that top 2-3 most valuable players in both the winning and the losing team, get bonus reputation in 95% of the situations. So, a better result in a battle will most like be compensated and will help you climb the ranked ladder.
All the modules slots are now available.
  • All 6 modules slots are now available disregarding the level of the hull or turret. They will be open to the player from level 1 and will allow the player to play with his favorite modules form the beginning.
  • The visual rewards for leveling up a hull or a turret were untouched. You will still get graffiti and skins for leveling up your turret or/and hull.
    6. Gold boxes are dropping in every type of battle and reward 1000 Crystals, just like in the old days.
Season Hydra has begun.
  • The season started today, February 16th, and will last until March 22nd.
  • The rewards will also be increased.

Top 50 masters for the previous season will be published this weekend.

Attention! We are working on sending the rewards for the previous season to everybody. Don't panic, just stay put and only contact us if you haven't received your reward within 24 hours.

Developer's Diary #45


Greetings tankers! First of all, we would like to wish you a happy Valentine’s Day, and a lot of luck with your romantic ventures. Try to show appreciation for your loved one, more than one day a year, and you will surely get the same back.

Celebrations in February

The Valentine’s Day celebration in Tanki X started this morning and is scheduled to be removed on February 17th. There are a number of contests waiting for you on our Social media pages, as well as special offers in-game.

During these three days of celebration, players will earn twice the amount of experience in battles. This will help you get that new rank, equipment upgrade, and containers with blueprints, much faster.

For only 1000 Crystals, you can acquire a unique graffiti called “Devil's Heart”. An excellent illustration that represents the nature of love.

Upon buying X-crystals using any available payment method, you will get two bonuses! First, you will get double the amount of X-crystals you paid for. Secondly, you will get a special paint called “Arrows of Love” as a gift.

Attention! This special offer will start only on February 15th. 
If you’re planning on using special prepaid vending machines, you will need to pay the exact cost of the smallest X-crystals package. Don’t forget to take the commission into account.

Of course, Valentine’s Day is not the only celebration this month. Between February 23rd and 25th, Tanki X will be celebrating Warrior’s Glory Day. You can expect discounts on X-crystals, daily quests that will reward containers, and a couple of other surprises. Don’t miss out!


We’ve finally updated the battle interface.

It has become futuristic and now fits into the setting of our game. This is only the first version of the interface, but we’re working on a second version which will be more familiar to experienced Tanki X players. You will be able to switch between the two versions of the interface during battle.

The first version of the interface was developed for new players that are used to interfaces in shooter games. It is supposed to help them get familiar with the game faster. However, during testing, we realized that it is quite uncomfortable for experienced tankers because they are used to focusing on both the position of their tank and the battlefield. Because of that, we decided to develop a second version, so-called “Focus mode”.

Battle missions

We’ve added new battle missions for newbies. They can be completed during battle and get rewarded instantly.

For example, you decide to start playing with Firebird for the first time. One of the battle missions will be to deal 500 fire damage to enemy tanks, for which you will be rewarded bonus experience to upgrade the turret.

In Capture the Flag mode you will have missions such as pick up the enemy flag or return the allied flag to its base, for which you will earn rank experience and crystals.

There are currently missions only for part of the weaponry. You can check the list on our forum. If there’s a turret you haven’t played at all since you registered your account, you can try the new missions and earn a couple of bonuses.

The Hydra season

Last week, we extended the current ranked season because of game mode changes that we are planning to release soon. What should you expect on February 16th?

With the upcoming ranked season, we decided to give up on splitting the battles into quick and ranked play. Only one play mode will remain - the ranked play. All the team based battles will now be focused on earning reputation.

Later, we plan on adding the “Deathmatch” mode as well as space battles, to ranked play. We really want to bring these game modes to their former glory, because we believe each of them is interesting in their own way.

Additionally, with the unification of the play modes, we will remove charges and teleports. The whole earning and spending teleport charges mechanic has proven to be quite complicated for most of the players. This is why ranked play will become free.

Good news for the gold box hunters is that the old gold boxes are back and they will reward Crystals, just like in the old days. More crystals means faster upgrades, so don’t forget to catch gold boxes, record epic videos while doing that, and share them with us.

The upcoming ranked season is called “Turbo season” among developers because the reputation earning speed will significantly increase. Players in the Training and Bronze league will earn reputation at a 100% increased rate, players in the Silver league - at a 50% increased rate, and those in the gold league - at 33% increased rate.

Ranked battles require a lot of focus and can be emotionally draining. Statistics show that a lot of players are spending too much time in the Bronze league. This increase in rates will help speed up the transition between leagues, and will help players earn better rewards and enjoy victories more often.

The symbol of the upcoming season will be the hydra, and the graffiti will resemble the one from the “Hydra squad” special pack. The new season will be longer than the previous ones, as it is scheduled to end on March 22nd. The reasoning behind this is that we need more time to gather statistics on the new game modes. We will also increase the season rewards.

Be ready for new festivities and updates next month. We will tell you more about that in our next episode of Developer’s Diary on March 8th.

“Tanki X is an awesome ride, with super responsive controls, smooth framerates, bombastic explosions and fun gameplay.”
Alpha Beta Gamer

“From the entire variety of well-made tank action games, Tanki X is the only one that has tanks jumping from platforms and become invisible.”

“I went in thinking that I’m going to play a few matches but ended up playing for two straight hours before exiting the game. The 15 minutes long matches are fully action packed with shooting, tactics, and all sorts of other tricks.”

Steam Exclusive Offer

The Steam pack will grant its owner a quick access to everything that makes our game stand out in the crowd of its genre. The pack is flexibly assembled to suit players with various needs, whether you’re the type that does not want to waste time on unlocking turrets, hulls, or modules, the type that likes to tune the look of his tank, or the type that is looking for advantageous special offers that include popular items and in-game currency.


About This Game

Tanki X is a multiplayer tank-action game that proves that there’s more to tanks than just thick shells and firepower… Strap on your seatbelt because you’re in for some serious adrenaline!

You decide what your tank will look like and how it will behave in battle. Choose from 11 turrets, all with different ranges, firing rates, and unique features such as repair nanobots for healing allies, bullets that bounce off walls to reach hidden enemies, and lots more. There’s even a turret that sprays enemies with a blast of ice to slow them down to a crawl.

Mount your weapon of choice on one of seven hulls of different shapes and size, all of which feel and handle differently. Wasp is renowned for its high speed and nimbleness, which makes it great for jumping off platforms and spinning around your target. On the flipside, Mammoth is a veritable fortress that will take lots of firepower to bring down.

Customization doesn’t stop at choosing turret, hull and paint job. In fact, each hull features five slots where you can install “Modules”. These Modules give you active and passive abilities that allow you to customize your gameplay for specific roles. You’ll be able to turn invisible, drop Spider Mines that will track down and kill your enemies, and lots of other cool and deadly functions.

There are 3 game modes in Tanki X. In “Capture the Flag” and “Team Deathmatch” you will need to rely on teamwork, tactics and cunning to get the upper hand. Then there’s the classic Deathmatch, where it’s everyone against everybody else — always fun. There are also 9 maps offering different backdrops, layouts and tactical challenges.

Earn crystals in battle to upgrade your equipment, remain competitive, and customize your tank further with aesthetic items such as paints, skins and colored projectiles.
