Wargaming is pleased to announce the global release of Update 1.5 for its flight combat MMO World of Warplanes. Update 1.5 introduces a brand new PvE game mode, inviting rookies to improve their aerial skills against computer-controlled aircraft, along with complex ground targets, a revamped superiority system, graphics improvements, and a new map.
Wargaming today announced the launch of the Wargaming supported WG mod, allowing players to broadcast their gameplay from the World of Tanks and World of Warplanes clients directly to their channel on Twitch, the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers. Now the intense online battles of Wargaming’s PC titles can be streamed from desktop to Twitch viewers with one simple click.
In support of the North American veterans and troops during National Military Appreciation Month (NMAM), Wargaming America, the exclusive North American publisher for Wargaming.net, today announced its May giving program in partnership with top veteran organizations for the third year in a row. Wargaming America has chosen four non-profit organizations in May to receive proceeds from sales within its award-winning game, World of Tanks, and the flight combat World of Warplanes: AMVETS, Battleship Texas Foundation, National Military Family Association and Operation Supply Drop.
Wargaming today announced the release of the soundtracks for its MMO action games World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. Albums are available for purchase at the iTunes Store, and can be downloaded for free at World of Tanks and World of Warplanes official websites and Google Music.
Wargaming, the leading free-to-play MMO developer and publisher, today announced the release of its highly anticipated free-to-play MMO action game World of Warplanes.
“The release of World of Warplanes marks a great moment for Wargaming, and we are extremely excited to offer players the next great chapter in our gaming universe,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “Just as we did for World of Tanks, we’ll continue to grow and evolve World of Warplanes with new content, nations, aircraft and game modes to keep our players fully engaged and always eager to take to the skies.”
Over 4.5 million players have taken part in the game’s beta testing phase, providing the developers with invaluable feedback and input to help shape the title into the premier free-to-play aviation combat game. World of Warplanes is becoming part of the Wargaming.net universe, sharing a number of features with World of Tanks, including the launch of the Unified Premium Account system, which will allow players to share premium status benefits between the two titles.
As part of the game reset, all player progression during the testing phase is wiped in order to level the playing field and provide all players with a fresh start in World of Warplanes with a few exceptions. All rewards for alpha and beta test participation such as special gift planes, medals, and award emblems carry over. Furthermore, planes purchased from pre-order packages are credited at release and leftover tokens from beta are automatically converted to premium playing time.
The video teaches players the unique characteristics of each warplane class: fighters, heavy fighters, and ground attack aircrafts. It also delves into more advanced training tips, including how to properly utilize a warbird’s afterburner during combat such as the “boom and zoom”, an important altitude-based method of attack against enemies at a lower altitude.
Since each plane posseses different armaments, maneuverability and unique roles during combat, even the slightest knowledge can give players an edge. Check out the video below highlighting the basics, advanced tactics, and class differences that can make a difference between victory and defeat in World of Warplanes.
I sat down with a joystick and a headset and dove in with Wargaming.net’s last World Of. It is very similar to World Of Tanks but strategy is handled a lot more differently since you have full movement in all directions rather than being exclusively on the ground.
