It's still baffling that Obsidian, a developer best known for roleplaying epics such as Fallout: New Vegas and Neverwinter Nights 2, is working on a free-to-play tank combat game dubbed Armored Warfare, though watching buildings be forcibly leveled by heavy artillery goes quite a ways toward easing that bewilderment.

This latest footage was issued in partnership with publisher My.com, in preparation for the deluge of information Obsidian is preparing to release during the upcoming E3 conference. Though a harbinger of more to come, this gameplay footage is pretty self-explanatory. Thanks to its CryEngine 3 underpinnings, all of the structures in Armored Warfare can be blown to pieces - a feat perfectly suited for the game's roster of rolling metal beasts.

While this footage tells us almost nothing about Armored Warfare's gameplay modes, or how its teams of tank commanders will square off, it makes a solid case for the destruction players will see once the free-to-play action game is officially available. Neither My.com nor Obisidian have established an official release date, though they hope to have Armored Warfare ready for the public at some point during 2014.
