World of Tanks will soon get Grand Battles, new vehicles, and balance tweaks. Grand Battles is a game mode which will see 30 vs 30 battles on a 1.4 km by 1.4 km new map. Ranked Battles Second Beta Season will be available in September.
World of Tanks is getting Grand Battles, new vehicles, and balance tweaks all in the latest update to hit the MMO. Update 9.20 was developed with the requests made by World of Tanks players in mind.
One of the biggest additions the update will bring is Grand Battles. This game mode will be a 30-vs-30 battle on a 1.4 km by 1.4 km new map, Nebelburg. Tier X tanks will be allowed to play in this map, and this means that the spoils of war that come with the territory will increase. The new map will also be the place where players can score Bonds, a new in-game currency that can be spent on Directives or Improved Equipment.
"Bringing World of Tanks battles to a whole new level is a really exciting step for us," said Max Chuvalov, World of Tanks Marketing Director. "We received some invaluable player feedback during our tests and are now ready to share the new mode with the community."
Update 9.20 will bring a total of nine new vehicles into the mix, in the form of Chinese tank destroyers. The tanks will feature great view ranges useful for taking out targets from afar and high camouflage values to keep them hidden. Older vehicles haven’t been forgotten: a number of vehicles from Japan, France, the USA, and the USSR have been brought up to speed with the game.
In addition, the Ranked Battles Second Beta Season will be available in September after the release of the Update 9.20.
