Now Slightly Australian - World of Tanks Blitz Updates
World of Tanks Blitz, the popular mobile version of the worldwide hit has gotten is newest update, which brings forth the first Japanese and Australian tanks to the game, as well as a brand new map.
The new Japanese Tech Tree adds a full branch of medium tanks as well as three low-tier light tanks, including the rapid-firing Tier 8 STA-1, the powerful and maneuverable Tier 9 Type 61 and the fearsome Tier 10 STB-1. Famed for their armor and heavy-hitting weapons, Japanese tanks possess solid vertical elevation, giving them an advantage on hilly terrain.
Update 2.4, “Shogun Warriors”, also has a special treat for our Australian players: the AC1 Sentinel Tier 4 Premium tank, the only tank to be designed and mass-produced in Australia during World War II. The new winter-themed “Himmelsdorf”, a unique urban battlefield, also arrives. With its narrow roads and ample options for cover, this map is perfect for sneaking up on unsuspecting foes.
