World of Tanks on consoles is taking it to a whole new level today with the latest expansion called Modern Armor. It’s now available for download, as always, for free, offering cross-play between Playstation 4 and 5, as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and X.
For the first time in the history of the World of Tanks brand, we deal with a modern battlefield, where dynamic gameplay plays the first violin. Players can choose between two factions: western and eastern alliances and 18 new tanks. On both sides of the conflict, we will find such units as:
- Western Alliance – M46A1 Patton, M47 Patton, M48A5PI Patton, M60’61 Patton, M60A1 Patton, M60A3 Patton, M1 Abrams, M1A1 Abrams and M1A2 Abrams.
- Eastern Alliance – T-72BM, T-44A, T-54 rpm. 1949, Object 165, T-62, T-72A, T-72AV, T-72B, and the T-72BU.
Each machine will be unlocked by playing regularly, and two Premium tanks are also available. The Cold War period was divided into three eras: post-war, escalation, and relaxation. We will find suitable tanks in each of them, taking into account their production date and combat capabilities. Matchmaker operates based on this division so that it will provide balanced gameplay.
With new, more efficient machines, four completely new maps have been added to the tankers’ disposal. They are modeled on the German, Norwegian, Middle East, and South-East Asian regions. It is worth noting that they are almost twice as large as those currently available in World of Tanks, giving you new strategic and tactical capabilities.
The modern battlefield also requires innovative consumables. Players can use smokescreens and recover health points while playing through special repair kits. The new tank modules will change the dynamics of battles.
Other interesting new features include brand new tank commanders in full 3D with new abilities and a coop mode where 15 players can team up and fight 15 AI-controlled opponents.
The release of Modern Armor and the premiere of the first episode of First Strike marks the beginning of a new journey. World of Tanks on consoles will provide players with new content every month to provide constant access to exciting new action.
