World of Tanks: Mercenaries is Bringing Back Commander Mode

Wargaming'sWorld of Tanks: Mercenaries is ready to kick off the summer with its massive 4.10 update whicn includes new in-game content, features, interface adjustments, tank customization, and the limited-time return of the RTS-style Commander Mode.

The update features the new Exact Armor Value Indicator, which is a gameplay feature that gives tank Commanders immediate feedback on the health of their vehicles. Each highlighted armor plate on the player's tank will now display the exact amount of armor it has, instead of a range. Players no longer have to guess at the durability of their tanks, and that means players have a better chance at surviving a battle.

Additional Camouflage options have been added for tank lines from Czechoslovakia, Italy, USSR, and Germany, letting Commanders better customize (and hide) their favorite vehicles. Players will be able to take the new collection for a spin in the adjusted Map Rotation and face off on more equal terms, thanks to new Tank Balance Changes.

Wargaming is also dropping fresh new armor options for the German Mauerbrecher VK 168.01 (P) and the French ELC Even 90. Available only until June 10, the Mauerbrecher sports thick armor and a powerful 128mm gun. This tank is a double threat – with heavy armor to shield your team, and a gun capable of dealing massive damage. Available only until June 11, The ELC Even 90 is a light, mobile tank with excellent fire support – perfect for scouting, or high-speed smash and grab attacks.

As part of the World of Tanks: Mercenaries 4.10 update, Commander Mode is returning to the game. It will be available from May 21 through May 27, 2019. Players will take control of multiple tanks, in an overhead isometric gameplay format, versus World of Tanks: Mercenaries' traditional FPS-styled combat. Enhancements to Commander Mode consist of improved controls, including revamped mouse and keyboard controls, more tanks, the introduction of a new map (Berlin), and more.

The summer update also drops this season's War Chests, which include content from the Commander's War Chest, General's War Chest, and the Heroes War Chest.

Finally, Deals of the Week returns on May 21 with two fan-favorite tanks. Players will get 50% off the Bear KV-122 and the Primo Victoria for one week. All Premium vehicles purchased from the in-game Store come with a 100% trained Crew, their own Garage slot, and a mix of standard and Premium ammo.
