New Map: Windstorm


Take the opportunity to battle across the newest map in the game, 'Windstorm'. The cold environment may prove to be a nice change of scenery, but don't let your guard down; your foes may be lying in wait in one of the many terrain features.

New Redesigned Maps: Ruinberg on Fire & Winter Himmelsdorf


Two of our favorite maps, given a fresh coat of paint. You now have the option to engage in battle at Ruinberg as the fires blaze in the rainy night, or in Himmelsdorf during wintertime.

Improvements to Existing Content

Besides the addition of a new map and tanks, Update 8.11 will also be making improvement on existing content such as:

  • Game elements were fixed on the following maps: Erlenberg, Redshire, Highway, North-West
