The 8.10 update adds an all new Japanese line of tanks to World of Tanks with 14 armored vehicles added to the roster, including 4 light tanks, topped with the Type 5 Ke-Ho, and 9 medium machines, headed by the top-tier STB-1. The update also adds the Japanese premium tank, the Type 3 Chi-Nu Kai medium.
A new Japanese-themed map called "Hidden Village" was also added to the rotation.
The Soviet tech tree also was tweaked a little with two new medium tank additions - the Tier 9 Object 430 Variant II and the Tier 10 Object 430.
While this update is available now in North America and Europe, China and Vietnam will have to wait until Saturday, Dec. 26 and Korea will receive it on Sunday, Dec. 27.
