We are happy to introduce «Sandbox Remastered» — the first HD map in Tanki Online!
After introducing remastered HD versions of the turrets, we embarked on a journey to add in improved versions of the maps, starting with a fan favorite, «Sandbox».
After we officially moved to HTML5 Client, our developers have turned to new things such as turning your requests into reality.
Sandbox Remastered — this is not a recreating of the map, but rather its development. Here, we blend the experiences of the past with the technologies of the future to bring you a clean remake of this classic map. The battle area of the map has been updated as carefully as possible. And let’s not forget the attention to detail.
For this map, we have developed new models of game objects in a single style. Every flower, tree and tile is all handmade. We talked about this in detail in the V-LOG – Episode 316
And the main question is: how can you play on the new map?
Here is the answer:
In this weekend, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as part of the «Tanki Reloaded» event, with the server restart, from October 15th at 2:00 UTC until October 18th at 2:00 UTC, you will be able to play in the new HD Sandbox map in a special mode!
The map is still under development and has not been optimized, so you may encounter FPS drops. We understand this and still ask you to play this mode as actively as possible and invite your friends.
The map is only available in the PC version of the game. We still need to optimize the map to let mobile players enjoy playing on it.
This will help us collect the statistics we need, so we can identify any bugs and optimize the map for the best playing experience possible.
From Monday on, the map will be removed from the game and undergo changes with respect to the public tests this weekend. We will keep you updated with the news.
Don’t miss it! In the upcoming weekend, a new era of «Tanki»!
Enter the game, play, and don’t forget to share your feedback in the comments and in the forum!
