Map Changes

Each map is being rebuilt from the ground up for the Xbox One version and as a result, not all maps will be available immediately. The upside is that maps will not only look great on the Xbox One, but will also be improved on the Xbox 360 as well! The temporary map list for Update 1.12, through the Open Beta Weekend, is as follows:

  • Province
  • Province - Night
  • Mines
  • Mines - Rain
  • Prokhorovka
  • Prokhorovka - Night
  • Karelia
  • Ensk
  • Ensk - War!
  • Pacific Island
  • Abbey
  • South Coast
  • Mountain Pass
  • Mountain Pass - Snow
  • Arctic Region
  • Pearl River

Map Rotation

Xbox 360 players will be sharing the World of Tanks battlefields with Xbox One players, and in order for this to happen, we have rebuilt all of our maps from scratch. We are still in the construction process so you may notice some maps missing from rotation. For more information on our map availability and future plans, take a look at the latest Developer's Bulletin !
