Classic Maps Return with Improved Graphics!

December 7, 2021

Four maps make their comeback with polished visuals. Full details below.

That’s right, Commander! You’re getting both new and classic with the latest update!

We’ve upgraded the visual elements of four battle maps in addition to expanding three of them to Cold War mode’s map rotation.

Read on to see the screenshots and tier/mode ranges of every map.


Lakeville

World War II: Available to Tier III-X

Size: 800×800

Environment: Summer

Lakeville is situated by a mountain and lake that break up the combat zones. A frontline of tanks in the western mountain pass is critical in securing a match victory―leaving this route open will give easy access to the enemy directly to your base and flank. At the same time, units will also need to defend and push up through the village in the east. You may also want to consider the lakeside lane for scouting, sniping, and to help with spotting the enemy across the waters. This lane doesn’t have much cover, so approach it carefully.

Thiepval Ridge

World War II: Available to Tiers V-X

Cold War: Available to all Eras

Size: 1200×1200

Environment: Summer

World of Tanks sees the return of Thiepval Ridge, the console-exclusive map. Based in France, and originally released as a WWI event mode, this battlefield is back and available in WWII and Cold War map rotations.

The enhanced lighting and fog effects, bombed trenches, and abandoned bunkers give off a cinematic appeal as you plow through and engage the enemy in battle. While much of the map is within a dense forest, a few areas like the trenches offer more open clearings. However, the heavy plumes of smoke may hide or obscure the enemy from your sight. So be careful when engaging your opponents here.

Erlenberg

World War II: Available to Tiers V-X

Cold War: Available to Post War only

Size: 1000×1000

Environment: Winter

The chilly weather of Erlenberg is back!

A small town rests along the riverside and divides the map―most of the primary battles will take place here, while snipers and scouts on the surrounding hillsides attempt to pick off vulnerable and unaware tanks in the town. The river itself has three bridges for you to cross to the other side, but there are also some shallow crossings available if you don’t mind getting your treads wet. To the West of the map, you’ve got a castle on a small hill that offers good visibility to both the town and to the open fields to the south and southwest.

Raseiniai

World War II: Available to Tiers V-X

Cold War: Available to all Eras

Size: 1200×1200

Environment: Summer

Aside from the scattered farms and fields that offer clear sightlines, much of the map consists of tall trees and undulating hills. The old castle fortifications take the high ground and offer plenty of cover and protection, but not much clear distant visibility. The many entryways to the castle grounds can leave tankers vulnerable to an enemy ambush from the tree lines. So watch your flanks when storming the castle.

Lastly, a narrow winding stream cuts through the map. While not the quickest way to get from one point to the other, this river does offer plenty of cover and escape options (including a small cave) with its low and tight elevation layout.
