Version 9.10 of World Of Tanks is ready for deployment. This update will bring a lot of new vehicles, especially to the Japanese tech tree, as well as introducing changes to some other aspects of the game.Here’s a handy summary of what’s new, nabbed straight from the World of Tanks website:
Japanese Heavy Tank Branch
The Japanese arsenal is being expanded with some seriously heavy steel – a total of nine vehicles are being added,to create a complete heavy tank branch in the tech tree:
- Type 91
- Type 95
- O-I Experimental
- Type 4 Heavy
- Type 5 Heavy
With this update, a new event called Rampage will be added, offering the already known game modes: Domination and Steel Hunt. This time however, you will be able to either roll out into battle in your own tanks, or complete special missions to obtain some rentals, in case you do not have enough eligible tanks in your garage.
Keep your eyes open for more info coming closer to the event’s release!
