World of Tanks – Update 9.14 arrives with upgraded physics and sound
[Play now] Wargaming recently announced the release of update 9.14 for its immensly popular online game, World of Tanks. This update introduces improved sound and physics, as well as 24 pristine HD models, and a new map for Rampage mode: Ravage Capital. Improved physics lets players immerse themselves further into dynamic battles, with vehicles handling more realistically than before.
Commanders can master sharp turns, rapidly changing direction and controlling their tank’s turning radius during movement. Vehicles are also now more maneuverable, letting players take full advantage of agile tanks. Update 9.14 also introduces improved sound. In harnessing the new sound engine, players can hear every purr and roar of their steel beast as it roams the battlefield.
With sound being processed on a separate core, there are between 10 and 30 distinct sound sources, recorded from authentic vehicles on real proving grounds. When adding enhanced sound effects to orientate players in battle into the mix, as well as original event sounds, and multiple sound presets, World of Tanks adds another layer of authenticity to the already immersive gameplay experience.
Commanders can also look forward to 24 HD models of some of their favorite vehicles. Those who have been battling in the intense Rampage mode can also learn to dominate the new map, Ravaged Capital, which drops players in the heart of Paris’s warzone during World War II. With over 400 unique armored vehicles, World of Tanks is the first and only team-based dedicated to armored warfare!
