World of Tanks Testing Out 30v30 Frontline Game Mode On Huge Map
World of Tanks' battles are about to get bigger. A new game mode, featuring double-sized battles, is now live on the Sandbox test server, and it's so big that Wargaming had to call in reinforcements from Austria.
Frontline features 30v30 clashes across an expansive nine-square-kilometer "Epic Normandy" map. That's twice as many tanks as WoT's usual 15v15 matches and a map that's nine times larger than the standard one-square-kilometer fighting zone. According to the guide on the WoT site, the map is divided into nine square sections, with capture points and other objectives throughout. Players will have limited respawns, and battles are expected to last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes.
The mode will eventually utilize all tier X vehicles, though owing to a "temporary restriction caused by the technical nuances of testing," tier VIII light tanks are a part of testing. You can apply for access to the test server to try out Frontline via the announcements page on the World of Tanks site.
The game mode is being produced with the help of Austrian developer Bongfish, whose other major product appears to be a Smurfs mobile game. That's practically the same as World of Tanks, right?
