Wargaming, the company behind the very sucessfull line of strategy-based massively-multiplayer online (MMO) games World of Tanks, World of Warships and World of Warplanes has announced their partnership with BitPay to add Bitcoin payment support. The company’s games are all free to play, and players can customize their gaming with new weapons and vehicles by purchasing in game resources and items. Now players in the United States can use Bitcoin to get the virtual gold that serves as Wargaming’s currency for in-game power-ups in World of Tanks, World of Warships, and World of Warplanes. Unfortunately there is no information if or when Bitcoin support will be added for other regions as the announcement specifically mentions support only for United States. Also it seems that Wargaming is not promoting the availability of Bitcoin payments as a separate entry in the list fo available payments yet and instead it is a part of the online payment types and not as a separate major entry in the list of available payment options. Still it is good news for both the players of the games and for Bitcoin as it continues to get accepted by more and more merchants as a payment method along other more traditional and established payment methods.

For a guide how you can use Bitcoin as a payment method in the different games…
