is allowing players to participate in a little revisionist history by unleashing French designs into World of Tanks
. Will the Germans finally get what's coming to them, or will the Panzers dominate as they did back in the 40s?
With today's Update 7.1
, the French have arrived in the game with several new tanks available for players to drive. Light, medium, and heavy versions of French armor will present a new twist on the established gameplay, with choices like the AMX 13-90, AMX 40, AMX 50 B and Lorraine 40t that feature automatic loading systems and oscillating turrets. Later this year Wargaming.net will add French tank destroyers and SPGs as well.
Lead Game Designer Mike Zhivets
believes this will present a unique challenge for players who think they have it all figured out: "Our players already know how to play with the 'big three' tank nations, but the French are all-different. You'll have to reconsider the way you think tanks behave before they let you tame them. And that's what we love them for!"
You can scope out these French beauties in the gallery below.
