World of Tanks update 9.0 “New Frontiers” is now rolling out worldwide, developer Wargaming has announced.
This latest update kicks off the developer’s plans to overhaul the game, introducing enhanced graphics for all battle arenas, tanks, and in-game objects, high definition models for ten vehicles, and the all new Historical Battles game mode.
The The America M4 Sherman, Soviet T-54, and German Tiger I are among the 10 tanks that have received an overhaul as part of the update. As well as this, update 9.0 introduces the first part of World of Tank’s updated physics engine, such as “turrets being blown off upon the explosion of the ammo rack and realistic suspension behavior.”
“The new Historical Battles game mode pits enemies against each other in some of World War II’s legendary tank encounters,” Wargaming explained. “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.”
