Wargaming.net has announced that the upcoming 7th update to their massively multiplayer tank sim World of Tanks will include the ability to add camouflage to tanks, as well as adding a new tank model, two new maps, and clan logos.
The two maps will be the Fjords and Swamp areas, which suggests what the theme of each map will be. However, the biggest addition to the 7.0 Update is a camouflage system that will affect tank skins. Naturally, it won't be a science fiction active camouflage, but a realistic paint job that is tailored to each map, so an urban level won't have the same camouflage as a pastoral one.
In the vein of tank skin modding, the update will feature the ability to put clan emblems on vehicles, which segues into an intriguing new "Fog of War" game mode for Clan Wars in which players cannot see the rosters. That is, no one will know who is on each other's team until they can visually verify the clan emblem on the tank.
Finally, a special model tank, the SU-85 (I), will be available within special World of Tanks events.
