'World of Warships: Legends' (ALL) Closed Beta Coming This Month, Accepting Sign-ups - Trailer

by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2018 @ 8:00 a.m. PST

World of Warships: Legends is a free-to-play naval action MMO based on sea battles of the 20th century that complete the "World of" war trilogy.

Keeping with the best traditions of the series, World of Warships will offer a straightforward interface, easy-to-use controls, and a common economic system that will allow players to distribute resources between the three games for the ultimate progress in each of them.

The large assortment of available warships will give various tactical opportunities, as all the machines have a unique combination of firepower, speed, armor, and endurance. Various naval maps with changing weather conditions will enrich the gameplay, and the realistic graphics will transport players into the epic battles that changed the course of human history.

You will move through tiers of ships trying out various legendary vehicles in the process and training your commanders to best accommodate available sets of weaponry and hull characteristics. Choose from two types of shells, launch torpedoes and outsmart your opponents. If you like blunt force, several ships will cater to your interests as well, be it destroyers that can stealthily approach the enemies or battleships with high risk/high reward salvos, which take a long time to reload, but wreak havoc if targeted well. Cruisers are the jacks of all trades that will be appreciated by players looking for a middle ground. 

When it comes to nations, World of Warships currently has 10 represented in the game. Major ones are: Japan, USA, USSR, Germany, Britain and France. There are also selected vehicles available for the Pan-Asian, Polish, Italian and Commonwealth navies. The number of ships in the game is always growing and you should be able to find something suitable to your playstyle pretty easily.

The waters are calm, but a storm is brewing! Prepare to sail head-first into epic naval battles as World of Warships: Legends enters Closed Beta on PS4 and Xbox One later this month! Don’t miss your chance to play the console version of Wargaming’s hit naval combat game that already has millions of players cruising the high seas on PC!

Sign-ups for the World of Warships: Legends Closed Beta are open now, with the first beta weekend beginning on December 21, 2018. This is the largest pre-release test yet, and there’s a host of new and improved content to try out when it docks!

For the Beta, a contingent of Legendary Commanders will be available to helm vessels like the mighty Iowa and the magnificent Amagi. The Commanders will bring a varied and personalized approach to combat, with each instilling their own strengths, skills, and strategies to the ships at their command. Players can look forward to fighting with the heroic US admiral Norman Scott, the Japanese tactician Isoroku Yamamoto, and many more.

The introduction of special daily and weekly combat missions will provide new ways to unlock rewards like special items and powerful bonuses! Players are challenged to sink ships, rack up XP, and start fires on enemy vessels to reap the spoils of war granted by the combat missions. With the addition of voice chat, exclusive to the console versions of World of Warships, it will be easier than ever to coordinate attacks and strategies to overcome missions with the help of your friends!

Along with the new content, the user interface has been refined and improved specifically to focus and fine-tune the console experience. With alpha testers’ feedback taken into consideration, in-game interfaces have been simplified for a smoother, more accessible player experience, with many other tweaks and adjustments to battles added. Visual improvements to water, smoke effects, and ship models also help to make the latest version of World of Warships: Legends more realistic and immersive than ever before.

Pre-register now to receive exclusive Closed Beta access and special rewards for when the game launches later in 2019.

There are 7 tiers of ships in total and you begin at tier I with late XIX to early XX century cruisers. Vehicle tiers can be separated in two distinct timelines - tiers I-IV belong to the "dreadnought era", while everything from tier V and above is grouping the WWII ships.  After playing several battles with them and getting acquainted with controls and basic mechanics, you'll move over to tier II cruisers, that are faster, better armed, more sturdy and have a choice of armament (high-explosive or armor-piercing shells). From there you'll be able to branch out into the destroyers which are all about stealth and high risk-high reward gameplay. Tier III will allow you to try out the battleships which bring huge salvos and armor, yet lack in maneuverability.

Maps are square with sizes range from 24x24 km to 18X18 km. Smaller maps are usually reserved for lower tiers, bigger - for higher. The maps are quite different both in size and island distribution. You will see all kinds of landscapes: from the icebergs of Arctic to the tropics of southeast Asia.

World of Warships: Legends is scheduled for release in 2019.
