Italian Tank Destroyers Update


We initially planned to release our new Tech Tree line of Italian tank destroyers on May 23rd. However, during development and internal testing, we ran into some unexpected technical difficulties with their design, so we want to share the cause and our future plans with you.

The Italian tank destroyer turrets rotate on a diagonal axis to the hull instead of a horizontal axis. This requires additional aiming mechanics that allow the barrel to account for the diagonal movement and keep the barrel and aim point aligned. Because of this challenge, we are currently working on resolving the following issues:

  • While aiming in sniper view, rotating the turret to either the left or right side causes the camera to swing (which makes you feel like you are on a boat).
  • In both camera views (3rd person & sniper view), we encountered problems where the aim point and the barrel separated from each other when rotating the turret.

These issues make it difficult to engage enemy tanks and would cause players to have an uncomfortable and unfamiliar player experience.

Our main priority toward you (aside from delivering the best gaming experience we can) is to make sure that our tank models come as close as possible to their real-life counterparts. As a result, we design our tanks with this in mind, which sometimes creates unexpected problems. Rest assured that we're working hard on resolving these issues so that you get to enjoy your upcoming tank destroyers to their fullest potential.

The new release date for this line is June 27th.
