Wargaming.net has announced the details of the 7.4 update for their massively multiplayer tank simulation, World of Tanks. The new update brings sweeping changes to the game, including a wide range of new gameplay features.

The first major additions to the game are the debut of two new game modes, Encounter Battle and Assault. In Encounter Battle mode, two factions fight for a single base, while the Assault features a group of defenders fending off a superior offensive surge.

Fans of the French tanks will be happy as tech tree armory has been given a boost, with two new armory lines. The tech tree features the inclusion of seven French long range SPGs feature the Renault BS, Lorraine 39 L AM, AMX 105 AM, AMX-13 F3 AM, Lorraine 155 (50), Lorraine 155 (51), and Bat. Chatillon 155. If that weren't enough, the update also adds eight new French tank destroyers: Renault FT AC, Renault UE 57, Somua Sau 40, S 35 CA, ARL V 39, AMX AC de 100, AMX AC de 120, and AMX 50 Foch.

Germans and Russians will be getting their own new premium combat vehicles as well. The Soviet made heavy tank IS 6 (tier VIII) and the German Jagdtiger, also called JagdTiger mit 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71 (tier VIII) are added.

Finally, two more new maps have been added. The first is Widepark, which takes place in a ruined German town filled with half ruined buildings perfect for heavy armor ambushes. The second is Airfield, a North African map filled with ancient temples, palm trees and rocky hills for those who want to get a nice high vantage point.

What's interesting about these new game modes is that they're random, meaning, when you hit "Battle" you may get into a traditional match or into one of these new modes.

Ehm....tat's not just interesting, that's quite awful. Why on earth would you only e given the option for a random game mode?

Finally some new game modes.

djole381 are you sure?
I don't like that either if it's true. There's enough randomness in the game already, we really don't need even more.

It's true, though it doesn't need to be a bad thing being random and all...

It is. That's why that never happens in any other game unless you expressly want the option.

Well, I guess we'll have to wait and see the response of the community when the patch is released.
