Wargaming, the developer of hit MMO World of Tanks, is targeting an "end of October" or "beginning of November" release for its next update, a representative told us.

Update 8.1, which will add a new line of British tanks, was announced last week along with details about the arrival of the Royal Tank Corps.

"The Brits invented the first tank, pioneering the evolution of the whole industry, and it's an honor for us to greet them in World of Tanks. They are so close, you can hear their tracks rolling!" said World of Tanks Producer Mike Zhivets at the time. "Their looks are as daunting as their guns, and I'm sure the Brits will make great competitors to other nations in World of Tanks." 

In addition to the British tanks, Update 8.1 will introduce an overhauled rendering and lighting system on five more battle arenas (Province, El Halluf, Dragon Ridge, Abbey, and Prokhorovka), and will also add new premium machines: the Soviet SU-11 44, the German PzIV Schmalturm VI and the Panther M10.
