Wargaming – the makers of the combat MMOs World of Tanks and World of Warplanes – has released an official launch date for their newest addition to the World of franchise: World of Warships. According to a press release by Wargaming, World of Warships will be entering open waters as of September 17th, 2015.

Said Wargaming’s Fred Menou in the World of Warships press release:

“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.”


Similar to how World of Tanks and World of Warplanes allowed players to commandeer mid-20th century tanks and planes, World of Warships will allow players to experience mid-20th century open sea naval combat

Whereas World of Tanks and World of Warplanes allowed players to commandeer World War I and World War II tanks and warplanes, respectfully, World of Warships explores the new frontier of naval combat. In World of Warships there will be four distinct classes of warships for players to choose from, namely: Destroyers, Cruisers, Battleships, and Aircraft carriers.

 Aircraft carriers, as their name implies, will be able to launch various mid-20th century warplanes to combat enemy ships in World of Warships

The game promises to carry over the tactical diversity of earlier World of MMOs, with each battle providing a unique experience thanks to the variety of game modes, maps, as well as ship, crew, and equipment combinations. Some of the iconic vessels that World of Warships will feature include, but are not limited to: the Japanese Yamato battleship, the USS Midway aircraft carrier, as well as European ships such as the Warspite, Tirplitz, and Aurora.

World of Warships, like its predecessors, is a free-to-play MMO. Gamers interested in commanding their very own naval ship can find more information on World of Warships using one of the three region links below:
