“Update 1.0 is a true game-changer,” said Milos Jerabek, World of Tanks Development Director.

The new maps will also tout distinguished flair and provide deeper immersion thanks to dynamic music, authentic soundtracks, and atmospheric ambience. The provide the latter, Wargaming teamed up with over 40 musicians from all around the world to create a unique atmospheric, authentic sound for each battlefield.
