Wargaming today announced the launch of the latest update for World of Tanks for Xbox One and 360, adding a new player performance recognition system, as well as new German and Soviet tanks.

– Two marks awarded for averaging more damage and assist damage than the top 85% of  players in a particular tank
– Three marks awarded for averaging more damage and assist damage than the top 90% of players in a particular tank

In addition to new barrel art, World of Tanks on console will also welcome five new tanks into the fold, including three from Germany and two from the U.S.S.R. The new German vehicles include the Tier 3 medium Pz Kpfw. IV Ausf. A, the Tier 4 medium Pz Kpfw. IV Ausf. D and the updating of the Tier 5 Pz. IV to the Pz. IV Ausf. H. The Soviet additions include the Tier 6 KV-85 and the updating of the Tier 6 KV-1S to the Tier 5 KV-1S.
