New update bombards World of Tanks
World of Tanks has launched a new update for its North American and European servers.
The update adds two new maps, Swamp and Fjords, along with camo and horns for tank customization options. Company battles have gained Junior (tier 4), Medium (tier 6), Champion (tier 8), and Absolute (tier 10) divisions.
New improvements to the game engine itself have also arrived: new visual effects for smokes, shots, and explosions that will run better on lower-end PCs; new multicluster technology so players can play on any cluster of a server group; and the ability to save replays of battles.
World of Tanks is published by Wargaming.net.
