World of Tanks is poised to release one of the most if not THE most significant update yet. Update 8.0 is slated to bring a host of new features including for the first timer ever, realistic tank movement physics, as well as new game rendering improvements. The enhanced renderer will bring a lot of updates but in a nutshell, your tanks will be able to play around in the water with lifelike splash and water wave effects!
But if tanks playing in the water like babies in a wading pool isn’t enough to tickle your fancy there are other content additions included as well. The update will also include emblem and inscription customization, adaptive camouflage (for those of us who like to use Predator technology on our tanks), mini-map functions, and an enhanced tech tree interface. Of course what is a World of Tanks update without the inclusion of more tanks, so you can expect a variety of new tanks added to the roster.
No word yet on the release date, but with update 7.5 releasing just last week, don’t expect to be riding the waves with your tanks soon.
You can watch a cinematic trailer rendition of the new update above, complete with tanks crashing into tanks to show of the added physics and a narrator who seems like he wandered off the set of some important documentary he was narrating…
