If you've been playing World of Tanks: Blitz [Free] for any decent amount of time, you'll know that all the tanks tend to look the same after a while even if their shapes and abilities differ. Update 2.5, which drops today, will change that with the addition of camouflage. As I wrote a few days ago, camouflage will both change the appearance of your tank depending on the map and the tank's nation and will also help you conceal your tank better. If you want to read more about camouflage, go read my story from the other day. I'll just briefly say that there will be four main types of camouflage and that it won't be crazy expensive, making it a sure bet that almost everyone will be bringing camouflaged tanks to battle from now on. The 2.5 update is bringing more than just camouflage to the game, though.

As the update trailer above shows, we are getting vehicle changes, the Japanese tanks are getting missions, and we are getting clan additions.The clan changes come in the form of Clan Supplies. Each clan starts at Supply Level 1, and when clan members collect XP using Tier V to X tanks, Clan Supplies increase. Each experience point is counted towards the clan's progress and is also counted towards the player's Personal Supply Points. One million Clan Supply points give you cheaper first aid kits, fire extinguishers, and cheaper vehicles, and the bonuses increase with every level.

To unlock the Clan Supplies bonuses for yourself, you need to collect a certain amount of Personal Supply Points (30,000 points unlock Level 2, 80,000 unlock Level 3, and so on). There are also changes to tanks such as the Matilda IV, Churchill Gun Carrier, SU-152, T-52, and a few more. Finally, players who enjoy Japanese tanks now have missions to play for. Server downtime for 2.5 is today from 13:00 PT to 17:00 PT, so get ready.
