Alongside the news for World of Warplanes, Wargaming.net announced today that update 7.3 is now available for its highly acclaimed armored warfare MMO World of Tanks. Update 7.3 brings substitutions and additions to the line of Soviet heavy tanks, splitting the line into two branches. Leading the way through the redesigned tech tree, the update moves the IS-4 tank into tier 10 of its own heavyweight line with KV-4 and ST-I. The KV-3 has moved from tier 6 to tier 7, and freed the slot for another newcomer, T-150.
New gameplay elements introduced in the 7.3 include the addition of a new battle arena, the South Coast, and the first map set in Asia, the Dragon’s Ridge.
As World of Tanks Producer Mike Jivets said:
“These new machines should give players a taste for big and powerful heavies. With the help of the upcoming battle arenas, the game will get a fresh look from both a visual and tactical point of view.”

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
