World of Tanks

Update 1.10 brings a new equipment system, Polish medium reinforcements and the return of a fan-favorite map to the game

August marks the 10th anniversary of World of Tanks so it’s only fitting that this month’s update is a cause for celebration: it’s the biggest one of the year. Update 1.10 will introduce a new system for equipment and 6 new Polish medium tanks, while also marking the return of Pearl River.

Allowing players to increase their vehicles’ characteristics and performance when installed, equipment in World of Tanks is being completely overhauled with the introduction of new pieces and revised bonuses for existing ones in Update 1.10. By changing the core mechanics, players will now have more freedom and choice when it comes to their loadouts. Additionally, the new pieces will diversify the gameplay, while also leading the way for new and non-standard battle tactics. And for lower and medium tier vehicles, equipment has become more accessible as the credit (World of Tanks’ earnable currency) price has been decreased.

1.10 is the biggest World of Tanks update since 1.0 released in 2018,” states Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “The biggest part of it is the new equipment system. The current iteration has been in the game for 10 years now and was definitely in need of a revamp. Players will now be able to experiment a lot more with their loadouts thanks to the new and improved equipment items.

Additionally, this new system brings with it a brand-new feature: slot specializations. Each vehicle from Tier VI onwards will have one of these slots and all equipment will now be designated one of four categories: firepower, survivability, mobility and scouting. By placing certain pieces of equipment in this slot, tankers will get an extra bonus on top of the piece’s standard one.

August’s update will also see the introduction of 6 new Polish medium tanks. Researchable from the Tier IV 14TP, the new branch will stretch from Tier V to Tier X. These winged hussars are versatile with good gun depression, mobility and maneuverability. They’re able to battle on any terrain and are suited for close-to-mid-range combat. At the top of the line is the CS-63 which introduces a brand-new feature: a gas-turbine engine. Boasting both standard and rapid mode, the latter will increase the vehicle’s engine power, as well as its top speed and acceleration. However, when this mode is activated, its accuracy is significantly impacted.

Update 1.10 also features the return of Pearl River. Making its first foray into World of Tanks in HD, the Asian-inspired map has received a significant revamp since it was last seen in 2015. And finally, the in-game battle communication system has been made simpler and more informative, so tankers can concentrate more on the battle.

Available for one weekend only, this special game mode will see teams of Tier X vehicles battle it out

One month, and one Act, separates World of Tanks from its 10th anniversary and subsequent big birthday bash! Act IV sees the return of 7v7 battles in Timeless Brawl. Additionally, there will be a new set of anniversary missions for players to take on, which will reward them with the grand prize: a 3D style for the T30, the legendary Tier IX tank destroyer.

Exclusively for Tier X vehicles, Timeless Brawl will take place between July 10th and 13th. For tankers without any Tier Xs, two tanks will be available to rent (the Object 140 and the WZ-111 model 5A) so no one will miss out on the fun. Using the Encounter game mode rules and a collection of 5 handpicked maps, these intense battles will have their own set of tasks to complete.

While players enjoy a weekend of duking it out, they’ll also be able to get their hands on unique customization items from the past, including elements that were rewards during the Tank Football, Steel Hunter and Halloween events.

And finally, tankers should also prepare themselves: World of Tanks officially turns 10 in August and next month will see the biggest celebrations, and Act, yet. Act V promises to ramp everything up to eleven with a whole heap of activities, rewards and gifts.

Available for one week only, a special PvP game mode will see players unleash the full force of the widely requested Sturmtiger

The anniversary activities are ramping up as World of Tanks’ 10th birthday nears in August. Act III will introduce a fun time-limited game mode, focused on the rather special and widely requested Sturmpanzer VI Sturmtiger. Additionally, players can take on a new set of anniversary missions, which will reward them with the third act’s unique 3D style.

As late as 2015, developers were considering adding the Sturmtiger to the game, but due to its unique characteristics and features, there wasn’t a truly natural fit for it in the tech tree. Players continued to request it, but unlike in real life, it was never realized. Several years later, there still might not be a place for this German SPG in the tech tree, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be put in the game.

The Sturmtiger is a wonderful piece of military vehicle history, but the real-life vehicle itself is rather unbalanced, which made it very hard to naturally fit in our game all those years ago,” states Dmitriy Trofimov, Game Designer for World of Tanks. “Its armor would be comparable to Tier VII or VIII, but its gun caliber… well, it’s something special. At 38cm, it’s 14cm more than anything else in our game.

For the first time ever, players will be able to get their hands on this urban legend, and the Sturmpanzer VI Sturmtiger is unlike anything they’ll have ever seen before. This Tier X German artillery bucks some of the trends its real-life counterpart is known for: its incredible agility will leave tankers in disbelief. However, the Sturmtiger retains the devastating firepower that’s typical for top-tier vehicles and ramps it up to eleven.

These colossal beasts will battle it out in teams of 10 on 5 different maps: Ensk, Widepark, Tundra, Mines and Airfield. The Crouching Sturmtiger game mode will be available for one week only, running from 17th June through June 24th.

Update 1.9.1 introduces an accurate reproduction of 1945′s Berlin, vehicle customization and much more

As summer approaches, World of Tanks is excited to announce that Update 1.9.1 will be launching on June 11 at 11:30 BST. The new update will add a realistic Berlin map, which boasts four main battle areas, finely detailed environments and instantly recognizable historic buildings, to the Random Battles pool.

The update will also give tankers the chance to enjoy several new visual customization options, from progressive decals that become flashier as the player completes special objectives on specific tanks, to adjustable styles coming as sets of individual elements to be applied separately. Additionally, a ton of cool decals which were previously only for vehicles of certain nations and tiers are now available to all.

Additionally, Update 1.9.1’s release coincides with the launch of Season 2 of Battle Pass, which will see players blast through event Stages by earning Progression Points in Random Battles – and will start at 14:00 BST on June 11. Two top-tier tanks, the U.S. M48A5 and the Czechoslovak TVP T 50/51, will be the stars of the show and will earn players more points. Awarded for completing Stage 45, this season’s main prizes are an exclusive 3D style for one of the Tier X vehicles, chosen by the player, and either of the commanders who’ve been battling it out all season.

Rewards will also include days of Premium Account, Credits, blueprint fragments, and two new types of Bounty Equipment.

Battle Pass Season 1 finishes its three-month run tomorrow, and the community really appreciated the experience and rewards,” says Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “We began gathering feedback as soon as the first season commenced so we’re able to seamlessly phase into the Season 2. We’re sure when it kicks off again in two days’ time, players will really like what they can get their hands on!

HONK! Watch out: Act II is coming through and brings with it new missions, customization elements, and the return of tank horns

Last month, World of Tanks detailed plans for its upcoming 10th anniversary, and on the road to the big celebration in August, there will be many activities taking place as parts of “Acts”. On May 18, Act II will bring with it the return of a never-before-released feature which was part of one Common Test almost 9 years ago: the tank horn. While players are honking on the battlefield, they’ll also be able to enjoy a fresh set of anniversary missions, brand-new customization elements and much more!

Each of the thematic Acts revolve around a certain part of World of Tanks’ deep history, and Act II’s Time Warp will reintroduce the tank horn, seen briefly in 2011. For veterans, it will be a welcome return of an amusing feature from the game’s archives, and for those who are completely new to the concept, it’ll be something interesting to get to grips with.

It was a strange request from the World of Tanks team. We normally work on staple battlefield sounds: shells, engines, metal hitting metal. It’s almost 9 years since we last worked with horns,” states Slava Skadorva, Audio Design Team Lead. “They wanted us to create special ones for the anniversary activities; it may be something a little different from our usual work, but we know the players are going to love it!

Tankers can use the horns to let their teammates know they’re coming through. However, everyone—including enemies—within a 200m radius may be able to hear this unique form of battle cry. Depending on a player’s vehicle mass, they will hear one of three different horns which were created from scratch (as real-life tank horns, while historical, are hard to find) by Wargaming’s audio team. Tank horns will be available for one week only from May 18 until May 25.

Players have been really enjoying the anniversary activities of Act I in a way we couldn’t even imagine. Many of them have regaled others with stories and memories from the old days of World of Tanks,” states Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “Act I brought back General Chat, which tankers absolutely loved, and we hope that they’ll welcome the return of the tank horn with open arms. What’s coming next? You’ll see.

​​​​​​​Road to Berlin will see fierce battles against AI on ad-hoc maps with plenty of rewards to reap

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the armistice that marked the end of the Second World War in Europe, World of Tanks is introducing a brand-new PvE mode: Road to Berlin — running from May 4th to 18th.

Tankers will have the option to join one of 5 different Units (Soviet, American and British). Each unit consists of three middle-tier vehicles of the same type and has a set of Combat Boosts, such as Airstrike, Artillery Strike, Special Shells, etc., to fight with enemies more efficiently. Once a player has made their choice, they will team up with four other commanders to take on AI-controlled adversaries.

Each battle has 5 sequential objectives, or Battle Missions, where players will need to harness a variety of battle tactics, from capturing to defending special zones to toppling the opponents and finally defeating enemy commanders.

Battles will take place on four maps that have been crafted specifically for Road to Berlin, including the brand-new Berlin map. Three of them will be available from the start; however, the Berlin map will only become available from late into the evening of May 8th, the time when the ceasefire became official 75 years ago.

The end of the Second World War in Europe is a key part of global history,” states Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “By creating this mode, we intended to remind people all around the world of this anniversary.

As players progress in the mode, there are a variety of rewards to unlock, including Decals, Bounty Equipment and a special Medal. Those who can prove themselves in the mode, will be rewarded with the grand prize: the IS-2 with spaced armor.

A new update for World of Tanks brings double-barreled heavies with an impressive firing mechanic to the battlefield

Today World of Tanks welcomes the first update of 2020: 1.7.1. The new version features, among other things, a trio of heavies brandishing a couple of large-caliber guns each. Here’s what you need to know before rushing to research them to take these formidable armored vehicles for a spin.

The double-barreled newcomers are all Soviet, sitting at Tiers VIII, IX, and X in an all-new branch stemming from the KV-3 at Tier VII. They are capable of firing their twin guns consecutively or in thundering salvos (the latter requiring some time to prepare).

The first in this new line of heavies is the IS-2-II. Those tankers who found an Object 703 II in their New Year Boxes should feel right at home with the IS-2-II as they handle similarly. However, the new, researchable Tier VIII gunslinger will forsake some of its one-time damage for a faster reload time.

At Tier IX, players will be introduced to the IS-3-II and its firm handshake, one capable of dealing 390 points of damage in a single shot. And finally, at Tier X they will tame the ST-II. It’s much like the ST-I already present in the game: it’s as well-armored and utilizes the same 122-mm gun that’s able to inflict 440 points of damage with a standard round. The difference is, the ST-II brings two of these guns to a fight.

The concept of double-barreled tanks haunted many a tank engineer,” says Max Chuvalov, World of Tanks Publishing Director at Wargaming. “But due to various reasons no such project has ever been brought to life. Yet in our game you can ride these monsters into battle looking just as they would have come to be.

Besides the two-barreled Soviet heavies, Update 1.7.1 offers tankers a very useful tool: the Demount Kit. It allows players to demount equipment from a vehicle without any Gold cost. And for those who like making their tanks look stunning, they will have access to several new 3D styles.
