If you've ignored the warnings by Paul Revere, then start preparing for the upcoming British invasion in World of Tanks. Developer Wargaming.net has announced that the armored war machines of Great Britain will join the ranks of other fellow tech trees from America, France, Germany, and the Soviet Union. Some of the British tanks included are the Crusader, Black Prince, Centurion, and Conqueror, which are separated in various types based upon their endurance, size, and weapon damage.
29th May, 2012 — Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame developer and publisher, today announced that its highly acclaimed MMO action game, World of Tanks, will soon be invaded by some of the most powerful and iconic war machines from Great Britain. The new British tech tree joins the ranks of existing armored vehicles, which include lines from America, France, Germany and the former Soviet Union.
World of Tanks players will get the chance to charge into battle in such recognizable vehicles like the Crusader, Black Prince, Centurion and Conqueror, decimating their opponents and attempting to balance their performance across two main vehicle types - fast and powerful tanks that lack endurance, as well as slow, heavily armored machines with low-damage weaponry.
"The British tanks are by far the most intriguing models we've come across over the course of World of Tanks development," said Wargaming.net Lead Producer Sergey Burkatovskiy. "In giving the players two distinct, yet very different types of vehicles, the development team has worked very carefully to make sure that balance not only fits into the current game, but is also one that's extremely fun. We can't wait for our players to experience it for themselves."
