For a little while now, Wargaming has been working on transitioning "Kharkov" into HD. Previously, the map had been tested in similar form to its' previous state -- however, gameplay problems persisted from the old map. Therefore, they are testing a completely new version of the map, redesigned from head-to-toe. Read on for some more background, as well as to see the current minimap.
Some brief background/history: The previous version on supertest from a couple months back had been made much brighter than the original, and some changes had been made to the main circle of buildings, but it appears these changes did not benefit the map enough -- in fact, player opinions appeared to be fairly negative towards them. As such, a completely-new prototype of the map is now being tested: "Kharkiv new 2".
This version of the map differs significantly from the previous ones -- most noticeably (besides the significant changes to the map's layout), there is no more snow! In addition to the video preview above, here is the new minimap:
