SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,658MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

Wargaming has announced the details of the latest World of Tanks game update. Most notable in the upcoming patch will be the inclusion of several premium features that will be made available for free users as well as new German and Soviet tanks.

Starting in Update 8.5, players will be able to purchase all premium consumables with silver credits. In addition, all players, both paying and non-paying, will be able to create 3-member platoons and companies.

The German tech tree will see a new line of iconic medium tanks added to their ranks, topped by the Leopard 1, a deadly Tier X all-rounder effective in both long-range and close combat.

Check out the details firsthand on the World of Tanks public test server.

    im sooo confused by this now...  they are letting you buy every tank based item for silver now?? so the only real reason to buy prem is for +xp and +silver ??? @_@

     

    glad they finally let freebies make plats. though i play solo its nice actually being able to :/

    its another step in the right direction.. tho its not like anyone ever used consumables that you had to use gold for LOL.. infact i totally forgot they even existed until i read this..

     

    Yes if you pay for a premium acconut you will still gain extra xp..

     

    Other changes are really nice.. over the last few months do to the lack of any MMORPGs to play i have played WOT quite a bit and I must say its probally one of my most favourite games around at the moment.. it can get annoying with pub teams as some players have no idea LOL but i guess i was like that when i first started playing..

    Increased barracks,removing modules,extra tank slots,retraining crews,etc. There are still plenty of reasons for premium if you are a fan. I wouldnt spend a penny on it untill they fix the crap spotting system.

    This game is one of the very few I cannot get bored with. I play this everyday and at least 2 matches, since release. I spend money on gold because I believe in supporting the company that created something that I love!

    actually barrack space/mod removal and a few others are only related to gold and not prem accounts. prem account only gives you silver/xp bonus and a fancy looking background. unless they changed it freebies can get  gold for free from corp based battles or something. (never joined a corp since CB so cant say for sure on that though)

    but basically there isnt any real need for prem now lol. items that was gold only is now slightly more costly but buyable with silver :/
