Update 1.65 "Way Of The Samurai"

Dear players! We are releasing the long anticipated 1.65 major update with which our game has also released and so are happy to introduce  “Way of the Samurai”! While your launcher is downloading files and our most impatient players have not yet opened the full list of changes, we would like to show you the most interesting features of the update. 

New Locations

Pilots and tankers will get new experiences as they play on the new locations “38th Parallel” and “Abandoned factory” whilst driving or flying new and updated vehicles!

“38th Parallel” “Abandoned factory”


A big change for aviation - we have created 3D cockpits for all aircraft in the game - including attackers and bombers.

New game mechanics: Hydropneumatic suspension

Behind a complex definition, hides a very useful combat ability to change the angle of the tank’s hull in all directions or the ability to ‘hunker down’ the vehicle, seriously reducing its height. Of course, only on vehicles that use this type of suspension.

Japanese ground forces

And of course the main heroes of this update - the Japanese tanks! Armoured vehicles of the Land of the rising sun have arrived! If you want to be the first to try them - check the news about the beginning of testing and how to join the testers team.

Type 74     Type 61     ST-A1      Type 3 Chi-Nu

See you on the battlefield!
