For the latest update to World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, we’re welcoming new additions to the British and German tech trees. Taking point is the new British artillery line, where iconic vehicles like the Sexton and Bishop will have their chance to shine.
Elsewhere, the German Tech Tree is being reinforced with new, powerful medium tanks that increase the variety and versatility of the line with vehicles like the Indien-Panzer and the legendary Leopard 1. So what can you expect from these gnarly new vehicles? Check out Wargaming’s official announcement here for more details.
