Time once again for big bushel of content in World of Tanks Update 9.7! New tanks, a bold new map, and a new twist on a fun mode are the highlights for this season's update goodness. Let's take a look!
The French tech tree gets a shot in the proverbial arm with a selection of seven new light and medium tanks:
- FCM 36 (tier II light)
- Renault R35 (tier II light)
- Somua S35 (tier III medium)
- SARL 42 (tier IV medium)
- Renault G1 (tier V medium)
- AMX 30 1st prototype (tier IX medium)
- AMX 30 B (tier X medium)
These European meanies have their own unique strengths, and add some welcome variety to the French line in general. Make your way towards them soon!
AMX 30 B
In the Premium Shop, players also get a chance to buy the T-54 first prototype medium tank (USSR tier VIII)!
Team Battle Revamp
The 7v7 Team Battle mode is getting serious with the addition of permanent teams -- not quite the same as Clans, but similarly formed for groups of players who want to dominate in a new way. Teams can now also prove themselves on a global leaderboard with a ladder system of leagues and divisions, and earn new achievements for their mastery!
9.7 also introduces Overlord, a brand-new map based on the Invasion of Normandy of 1944. A mix of beach and grassland make up this interesting new battlescape.
