As of today, a new 'Winter Showdown' mode is available in World of Tanks. Three concept tanks are ready in 8-bit glory to do battle in specially made maps. This mode will be playable until February 9th.

You know what World of Tanks could really do with? More tanks. There's only around five million in the game already, which is such a paltry number. Developer Wargaming clearly agrees with me, which is why players will soon be able to get their hands on 10 new British vehicles in Update 9.5.

The new roster consists of light tanks, mediums and tank destroyers, and contains such famous lumbering metal coffins as the Sherman Firefly and Achilles Tank Destroyer. There's a new vehicle for each Tier from II to X.

Players will be able to careen around in the new three-versus-three mode until October 12, with race winners each earning a special medal.
