Introducing the new Mini Client

General News
In other languages: pl de fr tr cs

In our efforts to improve the World of Tanks experience from the very beginning, we have introduced a new World of Tanks “mini client”, to be available within the next couple of weeks.

What is This New Client?

The mini client offers you a smaller download size, that enables you to start playing in less time by giving you faster access to Tier I-II vehicles and random battles. This is first and foremost a great option for new players who would have to begin from Tier I regardless, or secondarily as a way to check if World of Tanks runs suitably on your PC and internet connection without having to wait for the entire game to download.

Important: The Mini Client, SD and HD options will be offered with game install

Available in the Mini Client:
  • Tier I and II vehicles only
  • Tier III – X vehicles available only for research and purchase
  • Random Battles
  • Hangar Tutorial
  • Battle Training
  • Maps:
    • Mines
    • Mittengard
    • Ruinberg
    • Winter Himmelsdorf
Unavailable in the Mini Client:
  • Tier III – X vehicles for battles
  • Additional battle modes
  • Playing in Platoons (includes invitations)
  • Personal Missions

This can be a temporary limitation -- again, the mini client can continue to download the rest of the game and become the full client. In other words, once everything is downloaded, every feature of World of Tanks is available!
