'World of Warships' Comes To PS4 And Xbox One In 2019

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.

Wargaming announced that one of their biggest titles is about to embark on its maiden voyage on PS4 and Xbox One.

World of Warships: Legends promises to stir up the waters by bringing the ultimate naval combat experience, never seen on consoles before. 

Developed by Wargaming St. Petersburg, the team in charge of World of Warships PC, World of Warships: Legends provides a fresh take on 20th century naval warfare by taking advantage of the power and capabilities of the most popular modern consoles. In addition to thrilling, immersive battles with the most iconic warships from maritime history, the naval MMO will also contain content and features exclusive to console users. 

Wargaming St. Petersburg is inviting aspiring testers with knowledge of English to experience the game first. With the Alpha Test planned to start in July, players from all over the world are welcome to participate.

World of Warships: Legends is scheduled for release in 2019, with more information to be revealed at gamescom 2018.

For your chance to apply for the Alpha Test and find more details about the game, visit: the official website.

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.
