World of Tanks enCore demo is now available and lets you test the game’s brand new graphics engine

As we’ve informed you back in November, Wargaming is preparing a big graphics overhaul for World of Tanks. Wargaming plans to upgrade its graphics engine and bring new numerous graphical effects to it. And today, the team released a tech demo via which PC gamers can test this new graphics engine of World of Tanks on their machines.

The new graphics engine for World of Tanks is called Core Engine and will add new shading features as dynamic dirt, dynamic wetness, advanced material blending and vertex animation, particles improvements, as well as water deformation. Moreover, Wargaming will substitute almost all map elements — such as terrain, water, flora, lighting, shadows, buildings and other objects — with new ones, developed from scratch.

The switch to the new engine will happen when World of Tanks’ update 1.0 hits the Internet. Wargaming has not revealed when this will happen, however we’ll be sure to keep you posted.

You can download the World of Tanks enCore demo from its official website. Wargaming has also released some new trailers for World of Tanks that can be viewed below!
