After a rather long wait, the French and Italian vehicles are finally joining Armored Warfare as the offerings of a new dealer, named Francine De Laroche. The Arabian Nights campaign is now moving on with new events, but the 0.28 update also comes with Battalion Ranked Battles, new achievements, as well as many tweaks and fixes.

Armored Warfare is back with a major update and in spite of its rather pre-alpha release number — 0.28 — this vehicular combat online title is a fairly mature piece of code. After the merging of the North American and European servers that took place in November 2018, playing this game in PvP mode does not require waiting in queue for up to 5 or 10 minutes. Now, the new vehicle dealer and the other changes that we will talk about below try to bring Armored Warfare closer to its main competitor, namely World of Tanks.

Without further ado, these are the highlights of the Armored Warfare 0.28 update:

  • new dealer Francine De Laroche with the following vehicles: AMX-50, AMX-30B2, AMX-30B2 Brenus, AMX-40, AMX-13 DCA, C-13 TUA
  • soon to be added vehicles: Leclerc Prototype, VCAC Mephisto, Char Leclerc, Char Leclerc "Le Terminateur"
  • unique vehicle skills
  • new camouflages and decals
  • new retrofits and achievements
  • Battalion Ranked Battles - Battalion vs Battalion PvP mode similar to Clan Wars in World of Tanks
  • two new Special Operations missions
  • many tweaks and fixes

The update is not extremely large as it weighs less than 3 GB, so those on metered connections have a small reason for celebration here. To be honest, I cannot say yet if this update takes the game in the right direction, but it definitely comes with a few interesting changes that old players — and new ones — definitely need to check out.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
