WoT GU 8.7 live in Europe, headed for NA and Asia by the end of July.
The most recent update for the free-to-play MMO World of Tanks is live now in Europe, and will be headed to North America on July 29. Asian servers will receive the update before the end of the month.
Update 8.7 focuses most of its efforts on a new branch of British tanks from the Sexton to the Crusader and quite a few more. The update also includes some awesome post-WWII tank prototypes.
WoT also gets a new winter map in this patch. Entitled Severogorsk, the map is set in Northern Russia (so far north I wonder why anyone would fight over it). Beyond its name and location, nothing else has been released on the new battle map.
The full patch notes for 8.7 can be found here.
Wargaming released a trailer for the new update which details the history of British self-propelled artillery. The video gives a brief rundown of the new tanks being introduced in Update 8.7. Check it out below!
