New Year's 2017
Events about the upcoming holiday were covered in the release of Developer Diaries # 18, released on December 9, 2016.
The end of 2099. Frontier yields in the war against Antaeus and decide to launch a program to modernize its army. By order of the general, the “X” tank operators participating in the hostilities may receive containers with material reward, materials for upgrading weapons, or whole parts that separate the tank on the battlefield for special differences in battle. And what could be better for a tankman than to distinguish himself in front of his comrades and be remembered by the enemy? But Antaeus, learning about the initiative of the enemy, announced the same awards for his mercenaries, motivating them to blow up as many Frontier tanks as possible. The end of 2099 promised to be hot, despite the winter season intensified by climatic shifts.
