“Update 8.8 will introduce some very cool new machines into the Soviet and German lines,” said World of Tanks Producer Mike Zhivets. “Strengthened with the addition of even more medium and heavy vehicles, the game’s roster will offer players extra variety, while the re-balance within the German line will provide for a more well-rounded experience”.
The Ruskies will receive an alternative branch of Soviet medium tanks, starting at Tier 6. This new line will include the A-43 (Tier 6), the A-44 (Tier 7), the Object 416 (Tier 8), and the Object 140 that will take its place as the Soviet’s top medium tier option.
Two new vehicles will be added to the German arsenal. The Tier 4 DW heavy chariot and the Tier 6 VK3002 (M) medium tank. The VK3001H heavy tank will be moved to Tier 5, undergo re-balancing, and become a heavy tank, just as the VK3601H.
The Chinese aren’t forgotten, as two new premium vehicles – the Tier 8 T-34-3 medium tank and the 112 Tier 8 heavy tank, as well as a new battle arena with the autumn setting Tundra – are added.
PC players can’t have all the fun, as World of Tanks is coming soon to Xbox 360.
