8-Bit Battles to Arrive Today - World of Tanks -

World of Tanks players have a new event in which to participate with the arrival of the 8-Bit Battles. Fights will take place in wintery locations in one of three special new tanks. Included in the update are new ways to platoon, special gold rounds that heal friendlies and a new medal for participation.

Winter Showdown offers 3 original 8-bit vehicles, including the powerful Mammoth heavy tank, the fearsome Polar Bear tank destroyer, and the nimble Arctic Fox light tank on an exclusive snow-capped battlefield. New mega platoons will be available only for this new mode which allows tankers to platoon with five players instead of 3.

The new mode also offers different game setups for players to choose from including two mega platoons vs. two mega platoons and 10 vs. 10 in random battles.

To celebrate the addition of Winter Showdown, Wargaming America will be livestreaming the new mode on Monday Jan. 26, from 2-3 pm PST with World of Tanks producer Q&A at
