The official release date for Update 6.5 of the Action-MMO World of Tanks has been set for June 30th.
Along with two new maps -- Redshire that depicts a traditional British settlement, and Arctic Region, the very first purely winter location -- the update will feature the highly-anticipated American Tank Destroyers line, including the T95 superheavy monster.
Apart from the advanced US tree, Update 6.5 will bring up two premium light tanks -- the American M22 Locust and the Russian T-127.
One of the most significant changes Update 6.5 will carry is replacing the M26 Pershing with the M46 Patton, which will become the first step towards global tech trees revision.
"We constantly keep polishing the game balance, and updating World of Tanks to 6.5 is yet another important step in this direction," said Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. "That's just the first of the two American TD branches we'll be implementing, so we will bring even more strategic satisfaction to our players in the nearest future."
World of Tanks is the first and only team-based massively multi-player online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world with an arsenal that includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.
