World of Tanks Update 7.2 Released
The Long Awaited Update Introduces a Set of New Vehicles and Battle Arenas
30th March, 2012 — Wargaming.net, the award-winning global videogame publisher and developer, is proud to announce the release of Update 7.2 for its free-to-play action MMO World of Tanks.
Along with two new maps, the Italian Province and the American Live Oaks, the latest update enriches the game with a long-awaited branch of U.S. tank destroyers with rotating turrets. It also brings 22 all-new crew skills and perks for virtual tankmen to master. Additionally, to ease the learning curve, the update provides World of Tanks newcomers with a new tutorial to smoothen their entry into the game.
Other significant changes include the replacement of top-tier American heavies T34 and T30 with M103 and T110E5, respectively, with the T34 becoming a tier-8 premium heavyweight and T30 to top the new line of tank destroyers.
“We introduced a French update into World of Tanks a few months ago, and now it’s North America’s turn,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. “We’ve completely reconsidered the set of crew skills in Update 7.2, which will bring a more realistic experience to our players and keep them engaged.”
