New vehicles, new lighting system, vehicle controls and more...

New lighting system

There is a new ambient lighting system which is looking much better than the old one and also doesn't need any gpu power.

Improved sunshafts

The sunshafts are looking much better now! They will emit from the sun and share the sun's color.

New vehicles

There are a bunch of new modern and WWII vehicles which will be added in the update!


  • T-34
  • M4 Sherman
  • M26


  • BTR-80
  • AMX-10
  • Marksman AA

The anti air tank will fight against units at the moment, but there will be other targets for it soon.

Control vehicles

The player can now start with a vehicle or enter an allied vehicle during the battle.

You can choose between two vehicle cameras: Third person and one camera, which is aligned to the main gun.

Apocalypse faction

As I promised, there will be a new faction in this update. The apocalypse faction uses improvised guns and armor, but they are a strong faction.
