World of Tanks update brings German tank destroyers and team battles


New content is coming to Wargaming's World of Tanks in the form of tanks, a game mode, and a battle arena. Patch 8.9, set to go live "soon," introduces tier IV-X German tank destroyers, the Northwest battle arena, and Team Battle mode to WoT, which currently holds the world record for player concurrency in an online game.

New tanks include the Marder III, Nashorn, and the Waffenträger auf Pz.IV. The new top-tier German tank destroyer will be the Waffenträger auf E 100. Team Battle mode allows World of Tanks players to form teams and compete on the battlefield for ranking against players of similar experience and skill. According to producer Mike Zhivets, Team Battle mode "[significantly adds] to the competitive component of the game."
