World of Warships

Four teams of three commanders face off against each other in a savage struggle for resources

Developer and publisher Wargaming just released a new post-apocalyptic Battle Royale mode for their popular naval combat game World of Warships. Rogue Wave, a temporary battle mode set in a dark and toxic sea world is coming as part of the new 0.8.5 Update, which also introduces two new seasons of Ranked Sprint and few mechanical and cosmetic changes.

A brand new trailer for the post-apocalyptic Rogue Wave mode is available here.

In Rogue Wave, World of Warships’ new temporary Battle Royale mode, players will face off in four teams of three over resources in the flooded ruins of a sunken city, adding the ability for more than two teams to battle for the first time to World of Warships. Players will start with no consumable items, and will have to navigate a world on the brink of collapse with nothing but their ship and her armaments to defend themselves from other players. Other players aren’t the only threat, however, as throughout the match a wall of Wild Fire will steadily engulf the battlefield, pushing players closer and closer together, lest they get caught in the Fire and quickly lose HP.

Rogue Wave features three new ship classes specifically designed for the mode. The Octopus gathers ships armed with powerful torpedoes and low detectability, though featuring automated main batteries. The Moray Eel is comprised of highly maneuverable ships, designed for aggressive close quarter brawls, whereas the ships belonging to the Barracuda class are formidable vessels focusing on speed and powerful main battery guns.

Alongside Rogue Wave’s temporary Battle Royale mode, 0.8.5 introduces four Directives featuring ten missions each. Accomplishing these missions will enable players to earn Fuel Tokens and various other in-game items. Fuel Tokens can then be spent in the Armory on exclusive consumable post-apocalyptic camouflage, credits, Premium Account time and even a new Premium ship, the Benham – a Tier IX American destroyer, equipped with 16 torpedoes – a record for this Tier – and featuring unique post-apocalyptic camouflage as well as a new commander.

Additionally, the 0.8.5 update will introduce two new seasons of Ranked Sprints, where players will compete in 6v6 battles, while controlling Tier VII ships. Season 5 battles will be played in Domination mode, whereas Season 6 will feature Epicenter mode.

This update will also include Clan Brawl – a series of battles where clans will fight against one another over a single day for Steel and other valuable items, as well as a host of improvements and modifications, including new mechanics for damage inflicted to ships and shell penetration, a reworked minimap which now displays only the necessary information and much more.

Further details on the update 0.8.5. are available here and can be seen in the dev diary video here.

New Update Introduces Second Stage of the Victory Competition, Ranked Battles Return, and Dynamic Environments for Ports

Today developer and producer Wargaming has released their latest major update 0.8.4 for its popular naval combat game World of Warships. The next installment of the cycle dedicated to Soviet battleships marks the full release of the new tech tree and brings the second stage of the “Victory” competition, a new season of Ranked Battles, and dynamic environments in your Ports!

The new Kreml, Sovetsky Soyuz, Gangut and Knyaz Suvorov join the battleships that became available in Early Access last month, and will be heavily armoured ships of war with powerful weapons, best used at a close to medium range. Designed for aggressive play, these ships are designed for battlefield leaders, allowing players to penetrate enemy lines and deal huge damage to their opponents as they do.

As part of the continuing “Victory” event, alongside these new battleships comes a special new Soviet Hero commander, Nikolai Kuznetsov, leader of the Soviet Navy during WWII and the 3rd commander with unique abilities in the game, after Halsey and Yamamoto. Players will be able to unlock him through new temporary resource – Provision tokens. Beside Commander Kuznetsov, Provision tokens can be exchanged for popular Tier V premium ship Murmansk or new “In the Service of the Motherland” containers. Besides regular rewards, containers will also contain elements of the new Soviet collection, which pays homage to Soviet naval architects, and their legacy as shipbuilders.

Today’s update introduces the new map, Greece, for Tier IX and X battles. Inspired by Santorini Island, this map features low islands, making it possible to attack the ships hiding behind them.

Update 0.8.4. will also feature a new season of Ranked Battles, where the teams will be composed of seven Tier X ships each and the battles will take place in the “Domination” and reworked “Epicenter” modes, where the center and rings can now be captured separately. One of the key features of the new season is the return of aircraft carriers into Ranked Battles alongside with the introduction of free ship rentals, which will give more players the opportunity to participate.

Finally, in-game Ports have also been updated, and will now feature dynamic environment. With this new feature, players will be able to view traditional Ports in new colours, day will succeed night in “night-time” Ports, Saint Petersburg will be hugged by a cozy mist, and in the Ocean Port, the sun will roll off into the horizon and set.

Following up on recent relaunch of the aircraft carrier line of naval ships in World of Warships, Wargaming is pleased to announce that British aircraft carriers will be added to the game, expanding upon the currently available US and Japanese Carrier lines!

Starting February 27 with the launch of Update 0.8.1, three Royal navy aircraft carriers enter the fray through early access. Mighty tier IV Hermes, tier VI Furious, and tier VIII Implacable will be made available upon completing new missions and Directives of the “Fly! Strike! Win!” in-game event. A full release of the Royal Navy aircraft carrier branch will follow in the next month’s patch update.

British planes come with generous HP, which allows more daring attacks against ships with strong AA defenses. And while these aircraft are somewhat slower than the American and Japanese naval planes, they pack more of a wallop, thanks to extra rockets and high-level bombs, that makes them unique in this class.

Additionally, from February 28 to March 14, players who log in each day will receive free Air Supply containers in World of Warships. These containers include — Naval Aviation collection, camos, signal flags, resources, and combat missions that can help players earn additional ships.

New Aircraft Carrier Gameplay Ready to Set Sail – Lunar New Year Celebrations Bring New Visual Updates and Challenges

Wargaming, creators of the hugely popular naval combat game – World of Warships, today launched a new update (0.8.0) that brings with it a massive change to a core element of the game — Aircraft Carriers. Update 0.8.0 features an overhaul to Aircraft Carriers in World of Warships, making control and management of this class more accessible to players. The previous RTS style is now being replaced with action-oriented cinematic gameplay.

Taking into account several rounds of beta testing and significant player feedback, Wargaming has reworked Aircraft Carriers so that they now offer players direct control of their aircraft squadrons, sending them to attack targets, while Carrier commanders now feature additional skills specific to aircraft tactics. Also, when closing in on an enemy target, players can now take direct control of an attack group, giving the player a much more interactive air-attack experience. To celebrate the changes to the Carrier class, a new event, “Fly! Strike! Win!” will run from now until late April 2019, offering Carrier fans an opportunity to try out the new features and earn in-game prizes.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, player’s home base, the Dragon Port, has received a cosmetic makeover. Dragons, fireworks, streamers, and more now adorn the Port, making it a festive place to dock your fleet! Along with the Port’s visual update, players will be able to earn new ship camouflage patterns for select ships (the Anshan, Loyang, Huanghe, and Irian), bonus containers, and flags.

Ranked Battles return in Update 0.8.0, allowing commanders to test their skills against one another to see who really is the best. This season sees a fresh new set of rules, designed to create more diverse gameplay for players.

Wargaming announces details about a big October update coming to World of Warships, their free-to-play naval combat MMOG. This will introduce their Halloween event, which will feature the addition of the spookiest of all warships, submarines, though they say when the celebration kicks off is still TBA. In further future teasing, they also say another update before the end of the year will overhaul aircraft carriers “to add a whole new level of gameplay depth.” This trailer offers a work-in-progress look at some subs in action, and here are more details:

First off, as part of the annual and always anticipated Halloween in-game event, Wargaming is adding a spooky new addition that’s sure to change up gameplay in exciting ways – submarines! Subs add a whole new dimension to the game – literally! Now you have the whole undersea to prowl, as the Halloween event will see the addition of new sinister submarines. Once the event is over, Wargaming will take a look at the effect that adding this new element has on the game, and evaluate how best to completely integrate submarines into World of Warships – permanently! If all goes according to plan, players can expect more subs across multiple nationality tech-trees in 2019!

Wargaming is aiming for the end of this year to incorporate a new update that will see a rebalancing of aircraft carriers and a reworking of how they play in-game. Carriers will become more action-oriented, as one of the most significant changes includes direct aircraft squadron control, allowing for much more freedom – and the addition of three types of available squadrons (torpedo bombers, dive bombers, and attack planes). Along with those two key changes, players will have the ability to call fighter squadrons to patrol the current player location and engage enemy planes.

Sail the seas with the most famous battleships of France in World of Warships

Vive la France! Everyone knows France for its baguette and red wine, but also for its diversified and beautiful landscape and cities. Normandy, Bretagne, Alsace or the town of Lyon are famous all around the world.

World of Warships gives you a unique opportunity to re-visit what France produced as the most spectacular, powerful, breathtaking innovations in the naval engineering field. The French Battleships are now joining the game with Normandie, Bretagne, Alsace or Lyon, as well as Richelieu and Republique. Not only are these battleships among the most beautiful ever created and will enlighten your visual experience of the game, but if you think warships are slow or lack action, then you will revise your judgement. Take Normandie, (a tier VI warship) all the main battery turrets have 4 guns, with Lyon (tier VII) holding the absolute record in her 4×4 configuration. 16 canons ready to unleash their wrath on their opponents. And they are the fastest ships of their class.

Each ship has been meticulously recreated from blueprints after weeks of research. The developers spent many hours in the archives provided by Service historique de la Défense (Vincennes, Châtellerault) and Musee National de la Marine (Paris) to get access to photos and blueprints.

Sergey Gornostaev Senior Museums and Militaria Relations Specialist said, “we already knew from the history of French armaments and military vehicles that French war machines were quite unique in design. It was awesome to find that the French military love their heritage and are proud of it. We found special sets of references already prepared for scale modelers – this was a first for us in any archives we visited!”

Each model needed several months of works to be recreated. Et Voilà!

Everyone can now enjoy the best of France from his PC and understand why France was one of the most dangerous naval nation in the world.

worldofwarships-logoOne year ago, commanders banded together to banish terror from the high seas when the sinister Rasputin and its Zikasa hordes attempted to take over World of Warships. While brave captains sent these terrors back whence they came, little did the community know that, all this time, Rasputin had been plotting his return… To save the day this Halloween, players must fight the war for the living.

From Update 0.6.12.1, where there is darkness, there can also be light. And the second mission, Sunray in the Darkness, sees Transylvania return for another tour. Commanders once again head back to the Silver Spear Archipelago, sinking the forces of darkness in four brand-new Halloween ships. Watch the World of Warships – Halloween: A Sunray in the Darkness Trailer HERE.

Destroyer Urashima with commander Mina Hurray, cruiser Svyatozar with commander Ivan K. Ulibin, battleship Magnu-S with commander Klaus V. Teslau, and aircraft carrier Nobilium with commander Lazarus Centurio will be there to aid players in their fight. Each new vessel in your Port is also equipped with a unique consumable that does not only affect you but the enemy, too. Take them for a ride and see which one is best at destroying hordes of enemy vessels.

This time, guard towers will be lending their help as you attempt to protect them and ensure the portal to the other side is sealed once and for all—while enemy forces pour out and a sinister, debilitating fog slowly spreads across the waters. While this fog reduces a ship’s HP, spotting and detectability, it heals enemy ships, meaning players must sink their foes on the double. The task at hand is to save the towers, defeat Rasputin and a new threat, the Gorgon, and eliminate all enemies to save Transylvania.

For successfully pulling off your mission and completing special objectives, commanders receive a certain number of stars which, along with generating a rank, unlock awesome rewards. With special Halloween camo, tons of Free XP, Premium Account time, and loads of other treats up for grabs, players would have to be seriously spooked to miss out on this ghastly event.
