World of Tanks update 9.0 has rolled out, bringing with it a number of oh-so-pretty visual upgrades as well as Historical Battles.

Update 9.0 – titled New Frontiers – starts off the game’s planned visual overhaul. This patch gives ten tanks high-definition models and textures, and adds in some new physics functions, like turrets being blown off when the ammo rack explodes. If you’re into gameplay tweaks, though, then… well, World of Tanks 9.0 also adds in Historical Battles.

Historical Battles, as you might expect, lets you try your hand at a number of World War 2 battles. You can hop into a historically outfitted vehicle and fight through Operation Spring Awakening, the Battle of Kursk, or the Ardennes Breakthrough.

The patch is now available worldwide. You can have a looksee at a trailer showing off the new pretties below.

    Not sure where you guys are getting your info from, it is NOT released worldwide, only the Russian version has been updated. North America doesn’t get the update till tomorrow.

    Apologies if that’s the case – our info comes from a Wargaming press release that opens with the line “April 16, 2014 — Wargaming today announced that Update 9.0: New Frontiers for World of Tanks is now available worldwide.”

    FYI – this is a release, not a patch. A patch is a bug fix.
