Developer Q&A

What is the status of Free XP Premiums?

It’s feature complete and should debut in the game the first quarter of this year.

Will we see any higher tier Premium Artillery vehicles, like Tier VII and above?

We’re discussing that now, stay tuned.

Is there a timetable on when we could expect Italian Tanks?

Yes, you’ll see the Italian tank line in the first quarter of this year.

Is there an approximate date for when we will get the T26E3 Eagle 7?

It’s in the pipeline, there's no exact day but I’m guessing in the first half of this year.

Earlier in the year, it was proposed we would get a new Matchmaking System, What are the status of those changes?

You are correct, it has been discussed. Work is ongoing and I don’t have a good idea yet of when it will be done.

What game engine(s) does World of Tanks: Mercenaries use?

The client that runs on the console uses our own Despair engine that we’ve been using and upgrading for years now. The server runs on the same Big World technology that the PC game does.
