World Of Warships Eighth Anniversary

Celebrating eight years since the launch of World of Warships, Update 12.8 is ready to get the party started. Kicking off today, players can unlock a number of rewards in the form of battle performance bonuses and festive tokens. These tokens can be redeemed for the player’s choice of reward, which include camouflages, discounts for Tier VIII ships, the French Tier VIII cruiser Bayard, Containers and Super Containers, as well as a host of common, special, and rare economic bonuses. Birthday celebrations don’t stop there; Warships welcomes Tier IX European battleship Karl XIV Johan to the game! Alongside this new ship comes a designated permanent camouflage, three Commanders, each with a unique voiceover, and of course, its own flag and a patch.

Airship Escort Makes Its Way To Random Battles

After two previous iterations as a distinct Battle Mode, a new and improved Airship Escort drops into Random Battles to change up combat. Available in 12-on-12 formats for ships of all classes spanning Tier VII to Superships, players will guide their allied airship along a fixed route, beating the rival team to the destination or destroying their convoy to claim the win. This overhauled version of this mode sees updated routes and spawn points changed across a number of maps, a number of new indicators for airship speed and location, and new rewards in the Random Battles economy.

Graphics Updates

Since the Update 12.7, World of Warships has upgraded with major improvements for its graphics and audio. Highly detailed textures have been incorporated across several maps, including New Dawn, Polar, and Islands maps. This hyperrealism extends into the water, which welcomes improved animations for the waves that splash onto ships and better splash quality. Animals also get improvements, as well as an increase in numbers, with more fish, birds, dolphins, and sharks appearing across maps. Several islands see improved collision models, preventing passing ships from coming into contact. Beyond these environmental updates, players will find improved combat effects of both graphic and audio varieties. Shots fired from main, secondary battery, and AA guns, alongside explosions, welcome improved effects that vary by the target ship’s speed and the shell’s caliber. This impact is accompanied by improved audio to mimic the effect of combat from a distance. On top of this, the soundscape of Warships adapts to the battle situation, ranging from battle sounds during battle with enemy ships to ambient sounds emanating during the calmer moments of combat.

Spanish Cruisers & Arpeggio of Blue Steel Returns

Closing out this update’s brand-new content, Spanish cruisers leave Early Access, becoming available to all players, and Arpeggio of Blue Steel — Ars Nova — comes back to Warships’ waters to face off against the Fleet of Fog once more. Update 12.8 also welcomes four new Brawls that take place with their own unique division formats and sees the continued construction of Tier X Pan-Asian destroyer Lüshun in the Dockyard. This update also brings a number of bug fixes, upgrades, and balance changes across the game.
