12th December, 2012 — Wargaming today announced that Update 8.2 is now available in Europe and goes live in North America on December 13. The release introduces players to five new US machines featuring autoloaders and oscillating turrets. The line of premium vehicles has been reinforced by the British TOG II prototype heavy tank, the heavily armed AT-15À heavy TD, and the French FCM 50t heavy tank with impressive speed characteristics.
To ensure players get a perfectly balanced experience, the previously announced deployment of Chinese tanks will now take place in the next update.
Update 8.2 also added overhauled rendering and lighting to the next four battle arenas: Prokhorovka, Redshire, Erlenberg and Ruinberg, making them more realistic and inviting players to reconsider their strategies and apply new combat tactics.
