Wargaming.net has announced that the World of Tanks update v8.0 will go live on North American servers today and on European servers on September 27th. The update brings the overhauled physics engine into the game which, according to the dev team, gives the tanks more realistic behavior.
Along with the improvement, Update 8.0 adds a newly optimized user interface, enhanced rendering system for more lifelike and realistic visuals, as well as adaptive camouflage and new mini-map functions. Players can also now choose the combat mode type before entering the battle and transfer free experience into crew experience.
In addition, the USSR tech tree has been expanded with four new tank destroyers, and the first premium British machine, the Matilda Black Prince, rolled into the in-game shop for purchase.
