Bringing In Mercenaries

It seems like wargaming wants to keep gamers on their toes and it is safe to say that have done just that with the introduction of mercenaries. This brings a whole new aspect to the game and offers something that really has never been available before. This new mode will be introduced on January 29th and it will be called Core Breach. This new mode is going to add mechanized soldiers to the battlefield. This is not a new concept and it is somewhat similar to games like MechWarrior and Battletech, but it is new in World of Tanks. On January 29th there will be two different mechs introduced into the game. This will be the gigantic US iron Solder and the sleek but deadly USSR Steel Comrade. Each mech will be equipped with an array of lasers, missiles, machine, guns, and an abundance of health.

With these new characters, players will be able to shoot and crush their way through the snow-covered Old River City map, which is an interesting choice. This is so interesting because the map offers a plethora of destructible environments. However, players have to be cautious when mechs are destroyed because once the core is destroyed it can create an explosion as big as a city block. Players will also be able to eject and respawn.

The Winter Games Are Underway

Any World of Tank player probably already knows that the winter games are already underway. This is certainly a crucial time for players because it allows players to earn daily, monthly, quarterly, and annual rewards when they earn points through the in-game Ops. The second part of the Winter Games will kick off February 1st and players can look forward to hefty discounts on a new premium tank, the electrifying Thunderbolt.
