The Red Steel Rain Update slated for release on August 12 will unleash a new line of Soviet artillery, four German light tanks, and two premium British machines alongside with two more maps with weather effects: the rainy Live Oaks and the urban snow variant of the Port battle arena.
Players will get the much-anticipated new Platoon Battles system, allowing them to deploy into battle with up to seven friends.
The update will be available as a free download for all Xbox Live Gold members globally. All other Xbox Live account holders can get in on the action for a free seven-day trial.
Discover the full list of new features and improvements coming in Red Steel Rain on the game’s official website.
