World of Tanks is turning 10 years old this summer, but its counterpart, World of Tanks Blitz, is also celebrating a birthday with a new look and new game mode.

Today's update 7.0 adds a long list of graphical enhancements that will help make games seem more realistic: improved effects for object destruction, flames, smoke, dust, dynamic shadows, gun recoil, shell hit marks, and tank track traces. I never realized all the strategy that went into analyzing shell hit marks, but the video below shows me what I've been missing -- and probably helps explain why my win rate is so low.

There are also a trio of high-tier British tanks arriving in this update: the Tier VIII FV 301, Tier IX Vickers Cruiser, and Tier X Vickers Light 105. On July 9 Wargaming will continue the festivities with a new Skirmish mode, where teams of five will fight on a smaller map for quick, intense battles.

Get more info on update 7.0 for World of Tanks Blitz on the game's website.

Kind of weird for someone named "The Hatchetman" to not have melee...but it will have multiple "bolt-ons."
