3rd July, 2012 — Wargaming, the award-winning game developer and publisher, today announced details for Update 7.5 for its armored MMO action game World of Tanks. The forthcoming release will introduce new Tier 10 medium tanks and tank destroyers, as well as new maps and vehicles.
"The introduction of new Tier 10 medium tanks and tank destroyers opens up massive new possibilities and choices for players looking for heavy firepower and armor", said Sergey Burkatovskiy, Lead Producer at Wargaming. "But we're always committed to all of our players and the new lower-tier choices and maps will appeal to anyone looking for a fresh World of Tanks experience."
In Update 7.5, the American tech tree will receive the largest number of new Tier 10 vehicles: two T110 (E4 and E3) destroyers and the M48 Patton III medium tank. Fans of the German Panzerwaffe will enjoy commanding the E-50 Ausf M medium tank and JadgPz E-100 tank destroyer. The menacing Tier 10 Object 268 and the T62A medium tank round out the Soviet tech tree, while the French tech tree will be expanded with the Bat Chatillon 25t medium tank with additional gun and the AMX 50 Foch 155 tank destroyer.
Update 7.5 will also give fans of lower-tiered tanks new options, including the Tier 5 French light tank ELC AMX, the Tier 8 German JagdPanther II tank destroyer and Tier 6 Dickermax tank destroyer, as well as the Tier 8 American T26E4 Super Pershing medium tank. Players will also be given the chance to assert their military dominance on three new maps, each taking place in North American locations - Port, Highway and Quiet Beach.
