World of Tanks' 8.1 patch to feature British heavy armor

World of Tanks - Cromwell
Things are looking lively around the Wargaming.net offices. What with World of Tanks' recent 8.0 update as well as the news that 40 million people have registered accounts with the company, these are the salad days for the action MMO studio.

Now comes word of WoT's next patch, and 8.1 is bringing with it a whole slew of British heavy armor. "The Brits invented the first tank, pioneering the evolution of the whole industry, and it's an honor for us to greet them in World of Tanks," says producer Mike Zhivets.

The patch will allow players to master everything from the Vickers Medium Mk I to the heavyweight FV 214 Conqueror as well as the legendary Churchill tanks. No release date has been set as of yet, but you can learn more at the official WoT website.
