The seven new Russian and Soviet Cruisers rely on powerful flat-shooting guns to punish enemy vessels from a safe distance. Keeping this range is important for any daring Russian navy captains, as these ships can be quite vulnerable in mid-range engagements. However, at higher tiers these cruisers have the tools for intrepid players to stay safe—fast, short-ranged torpedoes and radar. This gives them the ability to foil the plans of stealthy destroyers trying to counter. Players will find that these Soviet cruisers offer immense potential for racking up damage as long as they avoid taking too much of a beating.
The new campaign, “War and Peace,” fits nicely with the Red Fleet’s cruisers. At the end of this 95-level campaign lies the Mikhail Kutuzov, a highly capable Russian cruiser that saw service throughout the Cold War. In World of Warships: Legends, this Cold War challenger pairs the outstanding performance of the Russian cruiser gun, complete with Smoke Generator and Sonar consumables. This means that the Mikhail Kutuzov can stealthily bombard enemies with ease by creating temporary concealment. On the way through “War and Peace,” players will earn a pile of consumables, equipment, and more. There will even be an oppertunity to get one of the early access Russian destroyers.
The Russian destroyers in early access range from tier III to tier VI and are true gunboats. These destroyers, such as the brilliant Tier V Gnevny, really shine in gunnery duels where they can use firepower to batter lone cruisers, whittle down battleships, and utterly demolish enemy destroyers. Their fast but short-ranged torpedoes are best used in an ambush to deal devastating blows on unsuspecting enemies. Players can get the chance to play them early through the new Soviet Containers, a few of which will also available in the War and Peace campaign!
Six new esteemed commanders represent the new nation. They cover a large section of Imperial Russian and Soviet naval history from the Russo-Turkish war into the Cold War. These commanders bring new inspirations and abilities to enhance player’s ships and make their new Russian fleet the best it can be. For example, Stepan Makarov, brings his lusciously bearded visage to command and improve your Russian Navy cruisers.
And make sure to keep a lookout for something entirely different on the horizon for our April Fool’s celebrations, but keep it quack… ahem, quiet!
