World of Tanks is definitely one of the best games currently on the Windows Store right now, so it’s no surprise we at Windows Report have been looking forward to its release since last fall.

The popular online multiplayer game finally made its way to Windows 10 users at the beginning of last December to a positive response. Now the game has been updated with lots of new content, so go ahead and make sure you have the latest version in order to try out its new features.

World of Tanks Blitz for Windows 10 updated

Updated from version 2.6.196.0_2.6.0_1659266 (or generally referred to as 2.6.0) to 2.7, this new of World of Tanks update packs a lot of new content into its hefty 471.4MB package.world of tanks windows 10

Note that if the game is opened while the update is still pending, the following error prompt will appear:”Your current version of the game out of date. Please update the client.” So, like it or not, you must update to the latest version.

The 2.7 update for World of Tanks Blitz adds a new map to the game, Clan Supply bonuses, and balance tweaks. Here’s the full changelog:

  • New Battlefield – Players can learn the lay of the land in a new African-inspired map—Mirage, featuring a stunning ocean view. Tankers can also discover updated lighting and design elements for Lost Temple.
  • Bonuses for Clan Soldiers – along with V–VII Supply levels, clan tankers will find new bonuses: extended discounts for consumables, the chance to purchase slots for credits, and low prices for vehicles up to Tier VII.
  • Balance Tweaks – tier II tanks have changed their dispersion parameters during and after shots, and also when the gun is damaged.
  • Other Improvements – the appearance of the IS-7, Object-140, Т29, and Type 59 has been reworked. Tanks begin the match in different locations on Desert Sands. Copperfield has been removed from high-tier battles.

The new African-inspired map does indeed come with a beautiful ocean view, with many players enjoying it so far. The new bonuses along with the balance tweaks are also welcome improvements.

Another small but much-needed improvement is how the tanks now begin every match in different locations on Desert Sands. In addition, the minified icon now shows a different thumbnail, as well.
