24 January 2014 — Wargaming revealed details of Update 8.11 for World of Tanks. The game will shortly get a new combat mode and battle arenas.
“We have always valued World of Tanks community’s feedback above all else,” said World of Tanks Lead Producer Mike Zhivets. “The combat mode with national teams has been a popular request from our players for quite some time, and we are excited that they will soon be able to try it out.”
The new game mode, Confrontation, will unite players with vehicles from a specific nation into a team that faces off against a comparable opposing team with vehicles from a different nation.
Along with a new game mode, Update 8.11 will add Windstorm, a brand new winter battle arena in a European setting, as well as a winter version of Himmelsdorf and a revamped Ruinberg, featuring rainfall and fires.
