'World Of Tanks' Celebrates 11th Anniversary With New Patch, Features & Content - Trailer

In World Of Tanks player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles, featuring more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War.

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.

Summer is getting hot - also in World of Tanks this August. The latest update, 11th anniversary celebrations and much more shouldn't be missed by any tank enthusiast.

The main focus this month is certainly the update 1.14 , which among other things will come up with a new line of Czechoslovak heavy tanks . Although it starts quite late with Tier VII, players can already use the new line to the full as of Tier VIII, as a new feature will find its way into the game: The choice between two different cannons! While either a classic cylindrical version is available, on the other hand a two-shot autoloader attracts the players. Both features are in no way inferior in terms of caliber, alpha damage or elevation angle due to the same values, so that the choice can be made on the basis of personal preferences.

In addition to the heavy tanks, a new map will find its way into the game's Random Battles - Safe Haven . It is a 1000x1000 meter summer map set in what was then Japan in the 1960s, on which a demilitarized civil port is embedded in a picturesque fishing village. The matching soundtrack comes from none other than the well-known composer Akira Yamaoka , who got carried away with a collaboration with the World of Tanks audio team.

A brand new feature is premiering in-game with Field Upgrade, which was previously only available in Ranked Battles. It allows you to fine-tune your favorite level VI – X vehicles in one of 15 different ways in order to develop their strengths and adapt them better to your personal style of play.

Due to the 11th birthday of World of Tanks , players can enjoy a variety of rewards and great gifts. The developers are still keeping a low profile, but as a token of gratitude to more than 160 million players worldwide there will be a festive garage and exciting gifts to celebrate this milestone together.

Last but not least, there will be a fresh practice mode in August - Terrain Knowledge. This new game mode challenges the navigation skills of the virtual tank commanders in various degrees of difficulty on different maps and complements the return of the epic mode Frontline , which is loved by players.

World Of Tanks is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
