Software update: World of Tanks Blitz 5.8




World of Tanks Blitz has its origins in Wargaming , the maker of World of Tanks, World of Warships, World of Warplanes, Master of Orion and Total War: Arena. It can be seen as the small, fast brother of World of Tanks, and is a free-to-play, online game in which players fight each other in teams with tanks from the period between roughly 1925 and 1965. The game is free to play, but makes use of microtransactions, with which you can, for example, purchase better ammunition or premium vehicles. The game runs on Android, iOS, macOS and Windows 10. In addition, a version via Steam available for macOS and Windows 7, 8 and 10. World of Tanks Blitz 5.8 has been released with the following announcement:
