April 16, 2014 — Wargaming today announced that Update 9.0: New Frontiers for World of Tanks will release in North America on April 17, 2014.
This addition kicks off Wargaming’s plans for a massive visual overhaul for World of Tanks throughout 2014, featuring 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. 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 new Historical Battles game mode pits enemies against each other in some of World War II’s most legendary tank encounters. Tankers will command historically-outfitted vehicles and relive three of history’s iconic battles: Operation Spring Awakening, the Battle of Kursk, and the Ardennes Breakthrough.
