World of Tanks Update 9.10 Now Live Globally

Update 9.10 for World of Tanks brings with it lots of new Japanese vehicles, nine to be exact! This new branch of Japanese tanks sees Tiers 2-10 get some serious backup in a series of heavy-hitting vehicles, featuring medium and heavy tanks.

The first Japanese heavy tank in the game is a Tier 3, Type 91, which features a high damage-per-minute output. Among others are the Tiers 6-9 tanks which boasts tough armor and powerful weaponry and the Type 5 Heavy at Tier 10, with its thick armor and 140 mm gun.

The great thing about this new tank line is that Japanese company FineMolds provided World of Tanks with 3D tank models based on the O-I. These models helped designers construct the O-I Experimental and continue Wargaming's mission of historical accuracy. And because of this collaboration, the Type 1 Chi-He, Type 4 Chi-To, and the Type 5 Chi-Ri medium tanks plastic models are available for purchase.

And if the plethora of new tanks wasn't exciting enough, Update 9.10 also brings an exciting new stage in the domination event: Rampage. Containing Steel Hunt and Domination, players can now rent one of three tanks, as well as their own vehicles that comply with the rule, to engage in this event.

In Steel Hunt, players can command Tier 10 vehicles exclusively, with the ability to re-spawn in their battle to capture flags, earning the most Victory Points. In Domination, players can use their Tier 8â€"10 vehicles in furious 10 minute battles to destroy enemy tanks and transport captured flags to select zones to score Victory Points.

Lastly, Update 9.10 includes map availability so players can battle across more maps as they work up the Tech Tree, a new garage tutorial to make familiarizing yourself with the game easier, and the addition of a smaller game client which lets players roll out in a more streamlined version of World of Tanks.
