World of Tanks is definitely one of the best games currently available on the Windows Store for Windows 10 players. The game is constantly being updated with new content and it hasn’t been a long while since its last.

The popular game has now been bumped to version 2.8, introducing a lot of fresh content to the game, like new Soviet tank destroyers, Provisions, and the improved Winter Malinovka map. Here’s the full changelog:

Soviet Reinforcements

Discover new Soviet tank destroyers: the SU-100М1 (Tier VII), SU-101 (Tier VIII), SU-122-54 (Tier IX), and Object 263 (Tier X) are here, so put them to the test.

Equipment Changes

Tankers have received new “passive” consumable—Provisions. These are automatically activated during battle, and include Standard Fuel, Improved Fuel, Protective Kit, Chocolate bar, White Rice, and more.

Improved Maps

Burst into the battle on the enhanced Winter Malinovka map. As well as landscape changes, there is now no mountain on the map, and the plane is replaced with a ship. Black Goldville, Fort Despair, Copperfield, Mirage, Himmelsdorf, Middleburg have also been slightly reworked.
