History Comes Alive in World of Tanks Update 9.0: New Frontiers
Experience tank warfare like never before with reimagined battle arenas, HD vehicles, and new game mode
April 16, 2014 — Wargaming today announced that Update 9.0: New Frontiers for World of Tanks is now available worldwide.
This addition kicks off the Company’s plans for a massive visual overhaul of World of Tanks throughout 2014, featuring enhanced graphics for all battle arenas, tanks, and in-game objects, high definition models for ten armored vehicles, and an all new Historical Battles game mode.
In New Frontiers, The America M4 Sherman, Soviet T-54, and German Tiger I are among the first ten iconic tanks that appear revamped with high definition models and textures. Some new physics functions, such as turrets being blown off upon the explosion of the ammo rack and realistic suspension behavior in the HD models allow tankers to delve deeper into intense battles.
The new Historical Battles game mode pits enemies against each other in some of World War II’s legendary tank encounters. Tankers will command historically-outfitted vehicles and relive three of history’s iconic battlefields: Operation Spring Awakening, the Battle of Kursk, and the Ardennes Breakthrough.
