Software Update: World of Tanks Blitz 6.1

World of Tanks Blitz has its origin in wargaming, the creator of World of Tanks, World of Warships, World of Warplanes, Master of Orion, and Total War: Arena. It can be seen as the little, fast brother of World of Tanks, and is a free-to-play, online game in which players battle each other in teams with tanks from roughly the period between 1925 and 1965. The game is free to play, but uses microtransactions, with which you can buy better ammunition or premium vehicles, for example. The game runs on Android, iOS, macOS and Windows 10. In addition, a version is available via Steam for macOS and Windows 7, 8 and 10. World of Tanks Blitz 6.1 has been released with the following announcement:
