Come March 2018 the game will go through a massive overhaul.

The biggest thing about the upcoming update for World of Tanks will be the switch to a more modern version of CORE graphics engine that will push the game into meeting current graphics standards.

“The in-house developed CORE engine brings a complete visual makeover, adding greater depth, beauty, and realism to battlefields with no adverse effect on the game’s performance,” says Wargaming. “Terrain, water, flora, skies, and environments on recreated maps get bolstered with the latest physically based rendering tech and support a variety of new and improved effects. Space is more realistically illuminated and battlefields feel more dynamic and active thanks to improved shading and lighting models, responsive water, and realistic terrain textures.”

Wargaming adds that Update 1.0 will not only improve graphical fidelity but also enhance the game’s audio presentation, having teamed up with over 40 musicians to do so.

“To share the look and feel of the upcoming update, Wargaming released World of Tanks enCore 2018, a special program that gives players a little hands-on time with the new visuals and music. With the help of enCore, everyone can replay battle videos and check how the overhauled game will perform on their game station.”

World of Tanks Update 1.0 is due in March 2018.
