Update Review: World of Tanks 1.0Update Review: World of Tanks 1.0

After years of internal work, over a month of public testing—and then even more internal iteration—the biggest update in the history of World of Tanks is nearly upon us! It elevates the game to 2018 standards in graphics and sound with the switch to a completely new graphics engine, Core, and introduces a new authentic soundtrack. The result? The world has been totally reskinned. It has all the bones of the original but a radically different face: crisper graphics, more detailed textures, higher-resolution images, and tunes that are timed and matched perfectly with what’s happening in the game. Better still, we worked a lot on performance optimization, reducing the overall memory footprint of graphics so that everyone can enjoy new visuals.

The sheer number of improvements and the level of effort that went into making Update 1.0 is comparable to the release of a completely new game. And today, we’re bringing you a deeper look into what you can expect to find when you launch the game tomorrow.

World of Tanks servers will be down on 21 March from 01:30 to 09:30 CET (UTC+1) to get everything in order.

Current Premium players will be credited an additional 24 hours of Premium Account time to make up for the maintenance period. If you’d like to make any in-game purchases, please wait until the servers are up and running again.
