Wargaming today announced details of Update 8.7 for its MMO action game, World of Tanks. In Update 8.7, the new branch of British self-propelled guns will take to the field of battle, including a number of iconic and well-known vehicles. Mid-tier entrants include the Sexton, Bishop and the Crusader.
The higher-tier entries for the British line will include a number of post-war prototypes, once again granting players the chance to climb into the hatches of some truly powerful vehicles that never saw actual combat. The Conqueror Gun Carriage experimental vehicle will top the new SPG line.
Mike Zhivets, World of Tanks Producer said:
“The core of Version 8.7 is the new British SPG branch. The upcoming expansion features several stand out models that are likely to catch on with the masses and spice up the overall artillery gameplay.”
Other additions in Update 8.7 include a brand new map, Belogorsk-19, a chilling and unforgiving Russian winter landscape, as well as one tier change for the Soviet line.
The Tier 5 Soviet light tank T-50-2 will be replaced by the MT-25, a visually unique light tank known for his high rate of acceleration and surprisingly powerful gun.
Wargaming has also released a trailer for this new update that can be viewed below!

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
