Wargaming has released a bunch of new screenshots to show off the new Winter Showdown mode coming to World of Tanks, which will feature an 8-bit aesthetic and new ways to battle.

The Winter Showdown mode will feature mega platoons, meaning the size is increased from three to five tanks per group. There will also be a new map and new tanks to use. The new tanks are the Mammoth heavy tank, the Polar Bear Tank Destroyer, and the Arctic Fox light tank. Each tank will have specific uses on the battlefield and will need to be used strategically for victory.

A new battle arena and medal will also be available for this mode, so the best players will have a chance to earn the Operation Winter badge if they excel in their command. You can check out the new 8-bit World of Tanks action after the break via a batch of new screenshots. There’s also a trailer to watch, so get to scrolling!
