We’re launching the limited public test of the new World of Warplanes version.
One of the main features of this big update will be the new «Conquest» game mode. The essence of the new game mode is to capture and hold key points on the battlefield.
«Conquest» Game Mode
Airfields and Military bases, Command Centres and Industrial objects — all these targets will be protected by fighters and anti-aircraft artillery. The capture of each particular target will not only give you Influence Points, but also tangible bonuses in battle and having them can decide the outcome of the battle.
We’re presenting a new class of planes — bombers, with good flight performance at high-altitude, powerful engines and a devastating load. You will be able to control one of these heavyweight planes or become a member of the interception group and meet them before they drop their bombs. Those who always dreamed of becoming a rear gunner will get this opportunity too. Yes, we’re introducing the option of manual rear gunner control.
Of course, the testers of the new version will be able to try out the new mechanics of in-battle respawn, check reworked maps, new graphics, and effects.
The skies are calling!
