World of Tanks 8.9 Update Details and Screenshots

The next update for World of Tanks (8.9) will add a new Team Battle mode in addition to an extended lineup of new German tank models to choose from.

According to Mike Zhivets, producer on World of Tanks, the Team Battle mode “will allow tankmen to form teams and master their tactical skills, fighting against players with similar level of expertise.” You’ll need a team to take on the new German Tank Destroyers that are also being added with the 8.9 update.

The second line of German Tanks range in class from Tier 4 all the way to Tier 10 level war machines, and there’s also a few new armored vehicles being added to help take down enemy tanks. These vehicles are the Marder III, the Nashorn, and the Waffenträger auf Pz.IV.

The official release date for World of Tanks’ 8.9 update hasn’t been unveiled, but it should roll out before the end of October. You can check out some new screenshots of the update below, as well as a preview of the new North American battle arena called Northwest.
