The company also announced the upcoming release of Update 7.1 featuring 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. 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," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net.
"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."
World of Tanks is the first and only team-based massively multiplayer online
action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank
battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your
arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the
Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.
A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try
any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your
foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines
with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate
opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers,
each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when
operated by a true tank ace.
But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In World of Tanks,
it's all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills
with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the
battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own steel empire and
manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
