The game will be replenished with new cars from Germany and the USSR and will give access to premium content to all players.

April 4, 2012 - Wargaming, a leading developer and publisher of online games, is pleased to announce update 8.5 for the MMO action World of Tanks, with which completely new lines will appear in the game tanks Germany and the USSR. The most important innovation will be free access to premium content for all players.

All premium consumables will be added to premium shells that are already available for loans, and players who do not have a premium account will be able to create platoons for three people and full-fledged companies.

In the German development tree, a series of new medium tanks will appear, headed by a Leopard 1, an 10 level wagon, equally comfortable at long range and in close combat maneuver. The Soviet line will be replenished with three light machines - the T-60, T-70 and T-80, the main advantages of which are low silhouette and strong oblique armor.

Traditionally, the update 8.5 will present the updated graphics for the three cards ("Siegfried Line", "South Bank" and "Robin"), as well as present a new combat location - "Pearl River".

The British line will receive a premium SAX Sexton, which has an incredibly high rate of fire and recharge rate.

      In any case, this is at least related to military issues. And if they would advertise some garbage like a detergent, or how now they turn the potency potion everywhere! This is generally nonsense. And so, if the state does not want to sponsor such military-patriotic projects, then you have to somehow get out, so that’s all the norm.

      Developed Byelorussians. Created by the Minsk branch of Wargaming.net. The official site of the manufacturer is http://wargaming.com/. But the company's headquarters are Cyprus, Nicosia. There are also branches in Kiev and St. Petersburg.
      Countrymen! But offshore :)

      I’m wondering, but would a CS advertisement and anything else like that be considered Western propaganda?
      Sorry, ads should not be content.

    Gayvarmingi well done, work and add all new equipment. Unlike the non-traditionalists of Wartander, they add to the seemingly normal passage of FLYING HORSES. Idiots sad

    The game is good, I recently tried it, but it really distracts me from reality.))) Like the Internet. I even missed a workout.

    No matter how anyone relates to this game, understand that advertising a game is money for developing a site! And I'm with two hands! Because it’s better to see this advertisement than some garbage that is completely unrelated to military issues.
    Although we are all here and adults who have gone through the army, many have families. But sometimes it’s still interesting to drive in tanks, albeit in the game! Rest and entertainment! hi

      this is how to approach it. I explain tactics to young airsoft players using tanks as an example. And clearly, it makes me think. Well, topographic cretinism cures. wink

    It may be nothing, because it's just a game. But somehow "fighting" shoulder-to-shoulder with tanks on which crosses and hitting the red-star T-34s are somehow dumb.

      I haven’t explained common truths for a long time. A tank is just a weapon, it is not bad and not good, bad or good - a tanker. The swastika is a symbol of prosperity - and not a symbol of fascism, Nazism, etc.

      Yes, there is such a jamb, I support.
      It would be much more worthy to allow participants to choose not only the type of tank, but also nationality in battle.
      That was exactly the case in the game, from which, as I think, everything went - In the rear of the enemy - desert foxes.

    Well, this is advertising, the site lives off of advertising, and there are fans of the game among us, there is nothing wrong with that ...

    I’ve been playing tanks myself for almost 2.5 years, I never thought that so much information about tanks can be learned from the game (real tank models and prototypes), which countries had which tanks, even visited a museum in Cuba.
    A huge plus to the game is that young people now watching a film about the Second World War can find out which tank its modifications, which gun is worth, and so on.

      The question is different. To discuss the game there is a forum dedicated to this game. All this should be discussed there. I have nothing against sponsor advertising - for this there are banners and other places for advertising. But not in the articles of the site (or you need to make a section of the game / advertisement).
