World of Warplanes 2.0: The New Beginning

Source: Portal

Greetings, Pilots!

We kept silent for a long time while preparing for the release of World of Warplanes 2.0. Finally, the global game update—the largest since the game’s release—went live, and now you can evaluate the result of many months of the team’s hard work.

You can learn about all the new features on the game’s website or simply by logging into the game client and playing a few battles. Don’t miss your chance to participate in the “Special Project” event that offers a rare opportunity to get the first three bombers in World of Warplanes for active involvement in battles! Meanwhile, we will tell you what lies ahead for World of Warplanes.

Before the update was released, we conducted several series of different tests, including the Public Test for players in the RU, EU, and NA regions. Based on the test results, we defined several main suggestions that you made and that will be addressed in the upcoming updates.

For example, we plan to add the options for enabling an attitude indicator, altimeter, and airspeed indicator that will display dangerous and critical altitude and speed ranges back into the game settings. These options will be disabled by default, but players who got used to them will be able to restore them in their battle interface. Also by popular request from players, the option to manually control flaps will be restored. Continue reading “World of Warplanes 2.0: The New Beginning”

Halloween Event

Ancient texts suggest that on the last night of October, vast masses of the undead squeeze out of their ‘final’ resting places and roam the Earth, expanding the boundaries of their possessions.

Inspired by the well-established tradition, Commanders from the World of Warships go on the prowl for monsters.
The Saving Transylvania event will be available during the first week after the release of Update 0.6.12. After that, the event will be available for the duration of Release 0.6.12, but only for teams assembled by players (just like other previous Operations).

But wait– have you ever ask yourself what happened to the Transylvania and her heroic defenders once they made their daring escape through the Portal? This time, the event will involve two parts, and we invite you to dive in to the sequel of the beloved tale of monstrous ships and hellfire-slinging catapults!
