World of Tanks Update 8.8 Adds Even More War Machines
World of Tanks players are almost as insatiable as those plastic hippos in Hungry Hungry Hippos, it seems. Thankfully, Wargaming understands this, proving themselves willing to keep feeding players new content as quickly as it gets gobbled up.
Seriously, we've just barely had time to explore the new features of Update 8.7, and World of Tanks Update 8.8 is already being announced.
So what's in store for this round of updates?
Producer Mike Zhivets was more than happy to explain: "Update 8.8 will introduce some very cool new machines into the Soviet and German lines. Strengthened with the addition of even more medium and heavy vehicles, the game's roster will offer players extra variety, while the rebalance within the German line will provide for a more well-rounded experience."
For the Soviets, World of Tanks is adding a new branch of tanks, starting at Tier 6. According to an official press release: "This new line will include the A-43 (Tier 6), the A-44 (Tier 7), the Object 416 (Tier 8), and the Object 140 that will take its place as the nation's top medium tier option."
Are the German War Machines more your cup of tea? "Fans of the German tech tree will see the debut of two new vehicles-the Tier 4 DW heavy chariot and the Tier 6 VK3002 (M) medium tank. The VK3001H heavy tank will be moved to Tier 5, undergo rebalancing, and become a heavy tank, just as the VK3601H."
The Chinese are getting some love too, with "two new Chinese premium machines-the Tier 8 T-34-3 medium tank and the 112 Tier 8 heavy tank."
Oh, and this update also comes with the new Tundra setting, which is said to be autumn-themed.
