It’s World of Tanks Blitz’s 7th anniversary this month and the developers are celebrating with the release of graphical improvements, a new vehicle line, fun modes, in-game events and a special Garage, all courtesy of Update 8.0. You can see more of what’s new in the new video below…
Starting with the graphical improvements, players will now beable to enjoy new features such as realistic suspension behaviour, sticky mud and snow, metallic surfaces are more shiny and vehicles get visibly wet when going through water. Over time, all 370 vehicles currently available in-game will be upgraded to these new graphical standards.
Players will get to enjoy a new American heavy line with four tanks ranging from Tier VII to X and all based on tanks created as part of the 1953 U.S. Army’s advanced research program. All 4 feature good gun depression angles and have the new “track within a track” feature making them hard to immobilise. The Tier IX and X will both provide a choice of two autoloader guns with clips for two or three shells.
A month of celebration is on the cards for Blitz players with the tank themed amusement park, Blitzland. From 14th-21st June visit the Shooting Gallery and from 21st-28th try the Strength-O-Meter and see if you can win the unique Tier V Pz. IV Gargoyle and Tier VII Kunze Panzer tanks. On 21st June a special Souvenir Stall opens for one week only, so give it a visit.
“World of Tanks Blitz has a tradition of dropping important updates and adding special activities on its anniversaries to celebrate them together with the community. This June, we treat our player base to a slew of long-developed improvements to graphics that will make the battlefield visual experience even more realistic without impacting the performance, a new U.S. tank line with a fresh mechanic, and lots of fun modes and events,” says Andrey Ryabovol, WoT Blitz Product Director.
Happy 7th birthday World of Tanks Blitz.
