The engine overhaul for World of Tanks that was announced late last year and promised as coming in March will be … coming in March, it appears. Who knew that was possible in video games?

Update 1.0 is the title, and it’s going to feature 30 remastered maps and music by the Prague Symphony Orchestra. The garage UI is also getting the deluxe treatment and will feature actual people hard at work on your tanks. There’s far more media than we can show off here on the World of Tanks website, so head over there to enjoy a feast for the eyes and ears.

If you want to see how it looks and plays for yourself, you can hop into the beta by following the instructions on this page. If you’re more interested in how you can progress in the live game, Wargaming has a series of missions underway until Update 1.0’s arrival, and you can learn about them here.

    WarTunder is a better game …..

    • Curst on March 3, 2018

      Is it though? I personally strongly prefer War Thunder for a number of reasons, but I wouldn’t go as far as saying that it’s an objectively “better” game. WoT has some annoying features, but it also has simplicity and charm absent in WT.

      Besides, in a sense War Thunder is 6 games in 1 (soon to be 9 in 1), so it isn’t even a fair comparison.

        WarTunder is better in evry aspect, gameplay, design detail, Sounds, UI, Optimization….. even Graphics…. and vs wot 1.0 still WarTunder has better graphics on max settings 🙂 its is fair to compare them ofc…. is not WarTunders fault that wargaming decided to cut theyr game in 3 separate games… :))) witch all are ,,,, crap compared to WarTunder….

          Why is it that so many still prefer WoT then? It’s easily the most popular game within the genre. Are all those people just not good enough for WT? This is entertainment, it doesn’t work like that.

          WT might be higher quality, but it’s too much of a niche game to be considered overall “better” I think. It’s like trying to decide who’s a better fighter: a sumo warrior or a fencer.

            more ppl play wot? hmm dont think soo there are 80.000 online in wt atm i dont know if WoT has so many online ……. even if it has……. it has more players because its simple and runs on potatoes less learning curve….

          • neagah on March 5, 2018

            Hm, dude, WoT has 180k players constant on both servers during the week, those numbers grow over 200k in the weekend. You should do your homework before spewing shit on the internet.

          • Virgil on March 6, 2018

            because it runs on potatoes…. not because its better:)
