'World of Tanks' (ALL) Introduces Strongholds Game Mode, New Map, Tweaks

by Rainier on July 30, 2014 @ 1:47 a.m. PDT

In World of Tanks 30-player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles. The game features more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War: light, medium, heavy and super heavy tanks, tank destroyers, self-propelled howitzers and rocket artillery. The game includes American, German and Soviet tanks.

World Of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

Ride the legendary Tiger tank, or choose the fast-and-furious Soviet T-34, practice your sharp-shooting skills with the American 155mm M40 Gun Motor Carriage or try experimental/prototype machines such as the Germany's monstrous Maus tank. A Player can have an endless number of tanks in "garage", and all machines can be upgraded in dozens of ways: better turrets, chassis, guns, engines, radios, various ammunition types, plus tank crew members can be leveled up as well.


By adding improvements on eight different maps and four reworked HD vehicle models in game, Update 9.2 continues Wargaming’s commitment to consistently refine the gaming experience throughout 2014.

Strongholds is an all new game mode designed specifically for members of Clan Wars. Clan Commanders are now able to create virtual bases for their clans, participate in Skirmishes alongside their fellow players, earn Industrial Resources, develop their Stronghold up to Level 4 and be awarded with special bonuses called Orders. Tankers can use Orders to activate a variety of temporary in-game bonuses for all clan members in all combat modes. As the level of the Stronghold increases, so does the frequency and quality of bonuses received.

“We are very excited to introduce the first iteration of Strongholds to World of Tanks,” said Anton Pankov, Executive Publishing Producer at Wargaming. “It is an extremely engaging game mode that combines tactics, strategy and action elements, bringing more depth to the World of Tanks metagame. Strongholds will evolve over time based on feedback from the World of Tanks community.”

In addition to Strongholds, Update 9.2 also introduces Fire Arc, the new version of Prokhorovka battle arena with stunning visual effects, as well as four new HD models including the Soviet IS and SU-100, the German StuG III and the British Churchill I, and improvements to eight in-game maps that have been reworked based on player requests.

To showcase the newest additions to the game, Wargaming America will host a one hour livestream on Thursday July 30, at 11am PDT on Twitch.tv/wargaming. Our hosts will be engaging fans with a live Q&A during the stream and giving away Gold for PC accounts.
