World of Tanks welcomes the new year with the release of update 1.19.1, which introduces a new branch of Chinese heavy tanks as well as a series of exciting activities, including the most recent version of Steel Hunter and a new Global Map event.
Starting with the Chinese heavy tanks, this new branch consists of four researchable tanks from Tier VII to Tier X, posing a significant threat to adversaries. All of them have strong turrets, well-sloped frontal armor, and powerful guns with ergonomic depression angles. However, the most intriguing aspect of them is their innovative Jet Booster Mechanic. It improves both engine power and peak forward speeds, enabling the user to drive faster or drive through weakly armored targets. Depending on the rank of the vehicle, players may use it up to six times every battle.
Update 1.19.1 of World of Tanks also adds a special version of the Battle Pass called Battle Pass Special: Judgment Day. It will run for a limited time and allow players the opportunity to gain iconic heroes as unique tank commanders, including John Connor and the T-800 Terminator, in addition to a slew of other enticing rewards.
The World of Tanks’ battle royale mode will also return in its latest iteration. This version offers players who achieve high levels of success in the Steel Hunter mode more enjoyable prizes than in prior releases. Team up with friends or play solo to earn useful in-game goodies.
Meanwhile, a new Global Map event begins on February 13th and will run through February 27th. All clans will have the opportunity to compete against one another in a fierce battle for rewards and domination during this event.
Premium Account players will get an extra 24 hours of WoT Premium Account time as compensation for the update maintenance. The World of Tanks servers will be unavailable on the following schedules:
