Roll out with Update 9.2!


Tank Commanders!

Update 9.2 is now ready to go! There's no time to waste - the new Strongholds feature is now ready and waiting for you to begin construction. With so many upgrades and rewards to research and build, your clan will need all the help it can get to complete them all!

Also coming with this update are new HD models for more tanks, a new Observer mode for Training Rooms (at the moment) and a newly reskinned map of Prokhorovka. Of course, it's all accompanied by a host of balance tweaks and bug fixes that are present in every Update.

If you haven't watched it yet, check out this Update 9.2 Review video to see it all in action!


How to Download the 9.2 Update

If you have already installed World of Tanks, all you have to do is start the game launcher and let the client automatically update by itself. Otherwise, you can download the game client from the "Download World of Tanks" link:

NEW! Strongholds

The newest and biggest addition in Update 9.2, clans with more than 20 players can now construct Strongholds, which act as in-game bases that confer numerous bonuses in battle. With several types of structures to choose from and the ability to upgrade said structures, building an effective Stronghold won't be an easy task... but the rewards are sure to be worth the effort.


Catch all the action with Observer Mode

Prefer watching battles take place without actually participating in one? Observer mode is just the thing for you! With Observer Mode, you can now view the action from the perspective of any vehicle in battle, whether it be friend or enemy. This new method of spectating matches currently only works in Training Rooms, but rest assured that development will continue to enable its usage in more game modes in future.


More tanks with HD models

We're continuing to upgrade tanks with better textures! The IS, SU-100, StuG III Ausf.G and Churchill I are the newest recipients of the HD makeover. Take them out for a spin and admire them in person!


New Map: Fiery Salient

A rework of the existing Prokhorovka map, Fiery Salient is the new battleground in World of Tanks. Expect to fight through the flames of war in this map!


New Team Battle Mode Medals

A whole new batch of medals has just been created to award active participants of the 7v7 Team Battle Mode. For more details about those, visit the news article here.
