New Equipment System, Polish Tanks and Pearl River: World of Tanks Receives Biggest Update of the Year
In August, World of Tanks celebrates its 10th anniversary, on the occasion of which many festive events have already taken place in the game . However, the developers decided to further delight the players and will release the largest update in 2020 – with the number 1.10.
In update 1.10. players are waiting for a new equipment system, six Polish medium tanks and an updated map “Pearl River”. This is reported by Informant Tech , referring to the official World of Tanks website .
In World of Tanks, equipment allows players to improve the characteristics of vehicles. In update 1.10, this system was completely revised – with the addition of new modules to the game and the reconfiguration of the parameters of existing ones. Changing game mechanics will give “tankers” more choice when composing their sets of equipment and the opportunity to try new tactics on already familiar vehicles. Also, all equipment for low and medium-level vehicles will become more affordable due to a decrease in its price in credits (in the local currency of “Tanks”). An important feature of the new equipment – special slots corresponding to the categories of equipment (“Firepower”, “Vitality”, “Mobility” and “Reconnaissance”). Special slots appear starting from level VI. Modules of any type can be installed in them, but installing equipment of the required category gives a bonus to the characteristics of this module.
“1.10 is the largest update for World of Tanks since the release of version 1.0 in the spring of 2018,” says Maxim Chuvalov, Global Publishing Director of World of Tanks. – Its main component, of course, is new equipment. The old system was already 10 years old, and it was time to revise it. An expanded selection of new modules and changes in the characteristics of previously familiar ones will allow players to experiment and customize the cars for themselves. “
Also added to the game are six Polish medium tanks from the new branch. It is researched after the 14TP tank (Tier IV). The new vehicles are characterized by good speed, maneuverability and gun depression angles. They will prove themselves worthy on any type of map and are most effective in close and medium-range combat. At the top of the branch is the heir to the Polish winged hussars – CS-63. This tank is also capable of rushing into a desperate attack at hurricane speed – thanks to the gas turbine engine (first introduced in World of Tanks). The engine can operate in standard or high-speed mode; in the latter, the engine power is increased, increasing the maximum speed and giving additional acceleration to the tank. For the ability to make rapid dashes to advantageous positions in fast mode, the CS-63 pays for the accuracy of the gun. And finally, the popular card with Asian motives “Pearl River”, which the old-timers have not seen since 2015, returned to the game – thoroughly landscaped.
