Game developer/publisher Wargaming is updating its World of Tanks computer game to version 8.5, expanding the tank rosters for both Germany and the USSR and introduces new premium feature options for non-paying players.

The German tech tree will be updated with new, powerful medium tanks, including the legendary Tier X Leopard 1, while the Soviet tree will be strengthened with three new light tanks.

Also of note in Update 8.5, players will now be able to purchase all premium consumables with credits.  Previously, premium consumables were only purchasable with gold, the in-game currency purchased with real-world money.  In addition, all players, both paying and non-paying, will be able to create 3-member platoons and companies.

Update 8.5 is further rounded out with the introduction of a new battle arena, Pearl River, as well as visual revamps of the Siegfried Line, South Coast, and Malinovka maps.

The update will release on April 24 in Europe, April 25 in Southeast Asia and the United States, and May 7 in South Korea.

World of Tanks is a free-to-play online multiplayer computer game.
