Releasing a new video, Wargaming today announced the launch of a new content update for World of Tanks which further expands the tank rosters for both Germany and the USSR, as well as introduces new premium feature options for non-paying players. The German tech tree was updated with new, powerful medium tanks, including the legendary Tier X Leopard 1, while the Soviet tree was strengthened with three new light tanks.
