Version 8.0 is the most anticipated World of Tanks update so far! The new physics system has been discussed and speculated about by virtual tankers for months. Some of you may have already had a taste of it on the test servers. Now, all those dreams about jumping off cliffs and pushing enemies off bridges can become reality.
However, that’s not all! In version 8.0, World of Tanks will also get a brand new rendering and lighting system. Several maps will be put through a very intensive face-lift which will give them a brand new feel.
As with every update, there will be several new vehicles introduced into the game. These include four new USSR tank destroyers, and a new premium tank, the Matilda Black Prince. As well as these new vehicles, you will also get a large number of new customisation options for your vehicles, in the form of emblems and inscriptions which can be placed on your tanks.
All these changes and more await you once Version 8.0 goes live! Read the full list of changes to see all of the details in the Updates section.
Those players with an active premium account at the time of the maintenance on Thursday 27th September will receive one day's worth of premium as compensation.
