Thundering onto PC this year is Update 1.0 for World of Tanks, powered through renewed energy thanks to Wargaming’s in-house Core engine. Eager players and tech-enthusiasts alike can get a sneak peek at how the game will look like upon release using enCore. This standalone program can be installed directly from http://wotencore.net/.
enCore enables players to check how their PC will handle the new graphics arriving in Update 1.0. All you have to do is choose from three presets, fine-tune resolution or anti-aliasing settings, and finally run the test. The three-minute test runs a visually stunning display of Update 1.0’s gameplay moments, highlighting principal new graphical features. Following the test, players will be provided with the result indicating a low, medium, or high performance rating.
The new graphics engine, Core, has been in development for over 4 years and was engineered in-house. Update 1.0 will see World of Tanks PC switch to this new engine and take advantage of the latest technology for graphics processing and rendering. Core’s introduction marks a new era for World of Tanks PC with PBR, post-processing effects, advanced lighting and shading, particle effects, and a multitude of other optimization and performance-enhancing features. The engine has been specifically built that those playing on low-end PCs will still be able to enjoy the experience whilst seeing improvements in performance, all on the same hardware previously required to run the game.
