Wargaming.net is rolling out beta keys this weekend for Xbox 360 World of Tanks. Playtest sessions are scheduled between 9.00 pm and 5.00 am BST, so not really for the UK or EU crowd.

Access to the beta is strictly invite only and limited to those who've previously registered for access. Keys are being sent out from tonight. This just marks the beginning of the beta.

The studio plans on "10 high-end gaming stations" to be running to let attendees get a taste. To celebrate the 60 million milestone they've also released a new World of Tanks trailer.

The dirty, dirty business of paying to win in free-to-play games is something Wargaming.net can't stomach anymore as they move to drop any real money purchases for items that would 'grant an advantage'.

World of Tanks will be purged of these offending items, and instead embrace what Wargaming.net is calling a "free-to-win" strategy. Basically, real money can only buy cosmetic items... like gold tanks.

Having separate accounts for all those Wargaming.net MMOs is getting to be rather silly, so the studio has launched a brand new "single unified account" system tying them all together with enhanced security.

Logging in with a Wargaming.net account now plugs you into "all other Wargaming-related projects," including partner and fan websites reachable via OpenID authentication. Sounds fancy.
