The shiny new tanks can be placed in maps by mapmakers with the recently updated modkit so players can choose if and when they want to spawn them. Tanks can be entered by gripping on their step ladders. Your hands will glow blue, letting you know you can now enter.

Station is an underground grid of US subway stations that interconnect for some fun S&D action. Station is quite the change from it’s sunny, paradisiacal Santorini counterpart. We’re glad it got remastered and looks great.

Pavlov WW2 Update – New User Interface

Pavlov players have been asking for a UI for a while now. The Pavlov WW2 update has also brought with it an exciting new UI for players to enjoy. Information should be easier to get to and look more visually appealing. The devs stated they intend for the buy menu to be editable by the modkit so modders can use their custom game modes in the not-so-distant future. Although this UI refresh is great, there will be more functionality added in later updates.


The Pavlov WW2 update is huge! With the addition of new maps, the introduction to tanks, and new weapons to try out, there’s plenty of new content to soak up. We excited to see how players react to the update and if it scratched their WWII itch.
