I'd not played World of Tanks Blitz, the free-to-play mobile game set in Wargaming's World of universe, until this morning. If, like me, you haven't played it but, also like me, you fancy giving it a go, you may be interested to know that Wargaming has announced a new Supremacy game mode that'll force experienced players to make new tactics and adapt the way they play.
World of Tanks Blitz is a 7 v. 7 multiplayer deathmatch game; Rick rather liked it
. Essentially, it's a fairly well put together mobile version of Wargaming's big brother World of Tanks. The controls are a little simpler and the visuals are cut down a bit because the power on mobile devices obviously isn't as high, but it still feels like playing World of Tanks.
So, the new game mode, then: Supremacy mode will be familiar to anyone who has ever played a capture the point or conquest game mode. There are a number of bases scattered across the battlefield and your team needs to split up and try to take and hold as many as possible. The more bases you're holding, the more points you'll accrue, and when you hit 1,000, you'll win.
Supremacy has been designed as more of a free-for-all than the finer tactics seen in most games. While tactics, teamwork and a fair chunk of personal skill will help you hold the scattered bases and prevail against enemies, the idea is that any tank from any tier can make a genuine difference in conflicts.
Supremacy is coming with Update 3.0, which will also include an update for the Falls Creek map too, described as a 'visual reworking
'. Find out more about the update here
