Developer and publisher Wargaming announced that World of Tanks: Mercenaries is ready to kick off the summer with its latest update - 4.10. This massive update includes new in-game content, features, interface adjustments, tank customization, and the limited-time return of Commander Mode, the beloved RTS-style in-game event.

As part of the new update, players are introduced to the new Exact Armor Value Indicator, which gives tank Commanders immediate feedback into the health of their vehicles and adds a whole new tactical level to gameplay. Each highlighted armor plate on the player’s tank will now display the exact amount of armor it has, instead of a range. No more guessing means players have a better chance at surviving a battle and deciding when it’s best to hold back, or when it's time to rush in and eradicate the enemy.

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 .

In other Mercenaries news, Wargaming is happy to introduce fresh new armor options to bring to the battle - 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 this World of Tanks: Mercenaries update, players will see a return to a very popular game mode - Commander Mode. Available from May 21 through May 27, this limited time mode provides an action-packed Real-Time-Strategy playstyle for fans who love on-the-battlefield strategy and tactics. 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.

With summer on its way, Wargaming brings the newest edition of War Chests. This season’s War Chests include diverse content from the Commander’s War Chest, General’s War Chest, and the Heroes War Chest! With War Chests, players can get Gold, Consumables, Free XP, and powerful Premium tanks.

Last but not least, 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 only. With its powerful gun and improved aim time, The Bear KV-122 will become an instant favorite for the fans of Heavy tanks. The flexible Primo Victoria is a Swedish Tier VIII Medium tank unlike any other - combining superior spotting and built-in camouflage bonuses to make it incredibly flexible on the battlefield as both a scout and fire support. 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.

World of Tanks: Mercenaries is available on PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. World of Tanks: Mercenaries can be downloaded for free by all PlayStation Network and Xbox Live account holders. The epic, story-driven campaign mode War Stories can also be played for free, with regular episodic stories giving players the chance to rewrite history in immersive single-player and co-operative battles.
