Update 7.1 Will Deliver French tech Tree
Wargaming.net has released update 7.0 for World of Tanks, their fantastically popular MMO tank simulation. The latest update deploys numerous camouflage patterns, two new maps (Fjords and Swamp) and updated graphical effects such as salvos and explosions. Update 7.1, which will be arriving soon, plans to roll out the French tech tree that boasts 18 new vehicles to thunder around in.
We've got more details and a new trailer after the break.
In addition to the maps and camo, tank Company mode has also been improved to fit players' requirements and abilities. Tankmen can now choose the division of battles with different tier caps: Junior (tier 4), Medium (tier 6), Champion (tier 8), and Absolute (tier 10).
Wargaming.net also announced the upcoming release of Update 7.1 - which features the French tech tree. 18 new vehicles will introduce the first three branches of the French nation; light, medium, and heavy steel chariots will "enrich the combat and bring all-new tactics into the game" due to their incredibly fast reloading times. These will later be followed by SPGs and tank destroyers.
7.0 is a huge-scale update that includes many of the long-expected features, including camo and new visual effects. Also, we are very excited to introduce the forthcoming French tanks. They are fast and deadly due to their special reloading system, and we believe they will dictate completely new battle strategies. - Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net
