The update has been postponed to October 10 due to data center issues.


Update 4.1
arrives October 10! Experience new maps, Swedish vehicles, replays, and much more!


Swedish Premium Tanks

A new nation is here to shake things up! Our first Swedish Premium vehicles give you a sneak peek at what to expect from Sweden's upcoming tech tree, particularly the Stark Strv S1 tank destroyer. Use the Stark to maneuver yourself into prime position, turn on "Siege" mode, and go HAM on your foes. Switch back to "Drive" mode to reposition, then keep up the fight! Check out the screenshots below to see how the Stark harnesses its new play styles.

The Strv m/42-57 is here, too, bringing variety to the medium tank lineup. Its fearsome auto-loading gun can do away with an opponent in just one clip -- just be sure you have teammates to cover for you during reloads!

New German Heavy Tanks

Some major muscle perches at the top of the German tree. Filling in for the Maus in the spot after the VK 45.02 is the new Pz.Kpfw. VII (tier X). A tried-and-true brawler, the Pz. VII has a beefy front hull that can keep enemies at bay with its pushing power.

And what about that Maus? It leads a new heavy tank branch, one that follows two other newcomers: the VK 100.01 P (tier VIII) and the Mäuschen (tier IX). The VK's frontal armor is strong enough to stop tier X guns, but keep those sides from being exposed. Meanwhile, the Mäuschen has much in common with the Maus, being a slow but HP-rich hunk of metal.

If you’ve already researched the Maus at the time of the update, the VK 100.01 P's and Mäuschen's required packages are automatically researched in order to preserve the Maus line.
There will also be a number of vehicle changes in Update 4.1. Check the update notes on Oct. 10 for more details.

Two New Maps Hit Consoles

Pilsen is a maze of construction equipment and gutted factory buildings. Remnants of an overhanging pipeline in certain spots could shield you from artillery fire, too. Map number two is Redshire 1944, an alternate version of the original Redshire with a new castle area.

Watch Replays

Just had an amazing match you want to see again? Maybe you want another chance to record a video clip? Now your last five battles are available to view as in-game replays! Watch them with the ability to pause, play, jump, or change camera views. Be sure you don't miss any of the intense combat!

You can only watch the last five replays from your current game session. They're lost if you fully quit or close the game.

How to Watch Replays

Once a battle ends, check the Personal Battle Results Screen for the “Watch Replay” icon. Use the left stick to highlight the option and press the A/X button to download the replay, or B/O to cancel the download and go back to the last screen. If in a Platoon or Team Training Room, you’ll be asked to leave before you can proceed.

You can also find replays in the "Log" tab. Highlight the battle you want to watch and press A/X to download.

To exit any currently playing replay, hit the Menu/Options button to pause play and choose “Return to Garage.”

Controlling Replays

Use the replay control panel to pause, play, skip forward or backwards 30 seconds, adjust the playback speed or jump to the beginning. Press Up on the directional pad to open the panel, and Down to close it. 

Camera Views

The default camera view is the "tank camera", with the full HUD and info from the player you’re observing. Use the triggers (LT/RT; L2/R2) to switch between players and the right thumbstick to control the camera.

In free camera, you can freely roam the map to view the battle from all angles. If close to a tank, you can activate “follow" to lock the camera tracking to the tank.

In director camera, the camera locks into place, and you can only control the direction you’re looking.

For help, press Menu/Options and choose “Replay Help.”
