Wargaming.net has announced that when the next patch for World of Tanks, v7.2, releases, it will bring more game-changing updates such as new maps, new crew skills, and new tanks.
The update, coming soon, will feature two new maps, Live Oaks and Campania. Live Oaks is the first map based on North America, utilizing a generalized Midwest feel. Campania (whose name does not denote its play style, they assure me) will spotlight an Italian landscape.
In addition, 20 new skills (count ‘em) will be coming for tank crews to master and individual crew members will have skill trees, giving players real incentive to carry crews from one tank to the next as they rise through the tiers.
Finally, the T34 and T30 heavy tanks in the American line will be replaced with the more realistic M103 and T110 models. A few other tanks will be added as well, mostly in the American and French trees.
