Level Artist, World of Tanks

 

"Wargaming Prague are expanding their development studio and we’re looking for a Level Artist to work on new and exciting features for our groundbreaking MMO title World of Tanks, which has over 100 million players worldwide.

As the Level Artist, you’ll be responsible for creating immersive environments and realistic maps where epic tank battles take place. You’ll also set up the lighting and mood for locations and take care of visual storytelling.

To be successful, you’ll need to have industry experience with good understanding of shape, form, mass and competition, texturing and lighting in game environments, combined with a passion for game development and enjoy working in a collaborative multicultural environment."

 

This sounds promising for new maps being released within the next twelve months, all thing being equal.

There are numerous other roles around this theme with lead roles and internships also being advertised, thus it would appear that Wargaming are intending to implement fresh environments soon. :)

Map teams were clogged when they did the 1.0 HD maps, and new map design was put on hold for a long time besides the FL and GB maps that were outsourced to a German studio. But as the maps got done, parts of the team were free to do base designs again. And a pile of new maps were shown and leaked in a rapid pace suddenly. Inc a Lillehammer map, one called Airline, the new Province, Berlin, Japort that was a dock with BB's in dry dock even. Airport, a few unnamed maps the past 14 or so months. So far only 1 of those have made an appearance. And that's Province.

 

So as we have seen before. Just because they focus lots of new maps. Don't mean we will see, lots of new maps any time soon sadly.

Giant Ensk as well was being looked at recently but nothing seen about it for a while. 

 

Would be great to see a patch with like 5-6 new maps, that would be a massive boost for the playerbase I reckon.

Yes, there's definitely some scope for just expanding out some of the existing maps with some new areas. Done right that would be a relatively easy win as 75% of the map would be complete already.

They have balance focused patches. So why not map focused patches? Then again wideing the map rotation pool might do the same trick for some.
