World of Tanks 8.5 rolls out with new purchase option


8:30 PM on 04.25.2013



Wargaming has gone ahead and pushed out a new update for its free-to-play MMO, World of Tanks. Update 8.5 adds new several new medium German tanks and three new light Soviet tanks; it also includes a new map, Pearl River, while at the same time providing face-lifts for several existing maps including Siegfried Line, South Coast, and Malinovka. 

Arguably one of the most intriguing aspects of Update 8.5, however, is the ability for non-paying users to purchase all available premium consumables through the spending of credits, as opposed to just gold.

With Europe having received this update yesterday, and the U.S. getting it today, only South Korea has yet to get receive 8.5 -- they will do so come May 7.
