Wargaming today announced the massive update 10.0, dubbed Rubicon, to arrive late October will introduce a new game mode — Rampage — and two new maps for World of Tanks. Commanders will find the new Rampage mode available in two variants: Steel Hunt and Domination.
In this latest and permanent addition to World of Tanks, Rampage mode will feature a series of challenging new mechanics. With first time additions including respawns, garage battles, repair spots and capture the flag, Rampage will empower commanders to adapt their gameplay in order to claim victory. Players will also have new abilities Artillery and Airstrike available to inflict major damage against their opponents in battle. These two Rampage variants have unique victory conditions and different team setups, letting players choose one to their liking and embark on the quest of collecting more Victory Points than their opposition—offering a new spin on standard tank warfare.
Rubicon presents an eerie alternative history which will be supported by war-torn maps — “Paris” and “Berlin” — that are exclusively available for Rampage. There is also a special season of Personal Battle Missions where players can earn the impressive Tier 10 T-22 sr. which was a huge hit with the testers. The achievement hunters obtain boosters and unique medals in their fight.
Update 10.0: Rubicon also features a PvE tutorial and a tweaked tank customization system which will now add bonuses to Crew Skills. Like all new additions, World of Tanks will be monitoring and working closely with the community to evolve these functionalities. This extends to World of Tanks’ updated technical base, allowing the development team work on enhancing visuals and game performance.
“Rubicon not only implements a range of new gameplay mechanics but also acts as a strong foundation for the development of new features that our players want,” said Sergey Laptenok, Publishing Product Director for World of Tanks. “Listening to our community and presenting them new and exciting ways to play is always a driving factor in our design decisions.”
