Wargaming today announced that World of Warships will officially launch on September 17th. The highly anticipated game of strategic naval combat will set sail with four classes of ships, a vast selection of historic vessels and endless strategic approaches to winning the fight for the high seas.
Fred Menou, Head of Global Publishing, Wargaming, said:
“Based on our Open Beta success with World of Warships, Wargaming is poised to launch our next big game. With 2 million participants and the average player spending 3 hours a day in game we have an armada of sea captains ready to take the helm of the ultimate naval combat game.”
On September 17th, players will have four distinct classes of warships to command, featuring some of history’s most iconic vessels including legendary battleship Yamato and aircraft carrier Midway.
Two full Tech Trees from the U.S. and Japan are available at launch, and several vessels from the U.K, Germany, and the U.S.S.R, including Warspite, Tirpitz, and Aurora also enter the fight.
In total, there are currently over 80 historical vessels available, with more nations on their way this year.
