We’ve been looking forward to expanding the world of online tank warfare in a big way by building the battlefield experience that you’ve dreamed of:

  • At long last, introducing modern tanks into World of Tanks, branching into different eras of history with a whole new Tech Tree and separate battle queue
  • Expanding the game with new maps available for both the World War II era and Cold War era
  • Adding in features that you, the community, have long requested, such as artillery-free battles in Cold War mode, along with Consumables like Smokescreens

Now it’s time. Coming to your console on April 27th, 2021World of Tanks: Modern Armor!

World of Tanks: Modern Armor is more than just an update. It’s the next step in the game, bringing you massive new additions while also updating the established gameplay at the heart of the battlefield.

The biggest news? Three words: Cold. War. Tanks.

You read that right. We’re bringing a Cold War universe into the game, full of fast-paced action along with features you’ve been waiting for:

  • Era-based matchmaking
  • Artillery-free gameplay
  • Tanks from the Cold War era
  • …and more!

The Cold War universe will exist as a brand-new game mode for you to choose in addition to the definitive World War II mode you’ve loved playing. But don’t worry—there’s more World War II-era content planned, too! We’ve already announced in one of our streams that Italian Heavies are coming into the game soon. We’ll continue to expand the World War II roster of tanks throughout the year with more Tech Tree lines and collectible tanks. You’ve dreamed about some of them for years, and you won’t believe they’re coming to Console!

And that’s not all. We’ve got amazing new maps, new Consumables that will expand your tactics, Co-Op gameplay as an additional option, and so, so much more.

We know you’ve got questions. We know you want all the details. We got you, Commander… and that’s why we’re going to give you all the intel before the release.

Starting tomorrow and leading up to the launch of World of Tanks: Modern Armor, we’ll be publishing articles straight from our developers, each focusing on specific new features.

Here’s what’s on deck:
