Wargaming has launched the official website for the upcoming World of Battleships MMO which will debut sometime next year. The game will be the third in Wargaming’s World War II-themed battle games after the hugely successful World of Tanks and the soon-to-release World of Warplanes.
From the site:
World of Battleships is a free-to-play naval action MMO that shifts players to the territory of 20th century warships. Dive into the massive naval battles and tame the overwhelming power of multiton titans to conquer the hard-line high seas!
The game provides numerous strategic opportunities for combat. Sudden strikes from cover, cunning flanking attacks or open head-to-head encounters — every player will have dozens of tactics to choose from. And don’t forget about the team! It’s the joint effort and efficient cooperation that will give your fleet near invincibility against the enemy attacks.
In a harbinger of things that might come to Tanks and Warplanes, the Battleships description hints at weather being a factor in the game. This addition has long been something that Tanks players have asked for: time and weather additions to maps to facilitate nighttime play and play in rain or snow.
The new World of Battleships website is replete with screenshots and a short title video. Wargaming has promised more in the coming weeks.
