World of Tanks update 9.0 'New Frontiers' rolls out tomorrow
Wargaming has announced that Update 9.0: New Frontiers for World of Tanks will be released tomorrow, April 17, bringing with it a massive visual overhaul for the massively multiplayer online game. Among the improvements are enhanced graphics for all battle arenas, tanks and in-game objects, high definition models for ten armored vehicles, and an all new Historical Battles game mode.
"In New Frontiers, the American M4 Sherman, Soviet T-54, and German Tiger I are among the first ten iconic tanks to be revamped with high definition models and textures," Wargaming says of the update. "New physics functions including blow-off turrets upon explosion of the ammo rack, and realistic suspension behavior in the HD models, create a more realistic environment allowing players to delve deeper into tank battles."
The Historical Battles game mode pits enemies against each other in three of World War II's most legendary tank battles: Operation Spring Awakening, the Battle of Kursk, and the Ardennes Breakthrough.
