'World of Warships: Legends' (ALL) Early Access Begins Tomorrow - Screens

by Rainier on April 15, 2019 @ 8:26 a.m. PDT

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.


World of Warships: Legends will be released on console Early Access starting April 16, 2019, and will be available to download for free — worldwide — on PS4 and Xbox One!

A new generation of budding captains can look forward to hoisting their colors, as Wargaming St. Petersburg brings the epic online naval combat loved by millions on PC, to consoles for the first time. The game supports English, Russian, Japanese, French, and German languages, and will launch with a host of ships to unlock, legendary commanders to add to your ranks, and entire oceans to conquer.

Early Access players on PlayStation and Xbox will join epic naval battles sharing the duties with more than 20 historical commanders, on board over 50 legendary ships! Destroyers, cruisers, and battleships are at your service and ready to show their full potential! Traverse 15 different maps and enjoy HDR support in action-packed clashes as you dominate the high seas!

World of Warships: Legends is no simple conversion of the global PC free-to-play phenomenon enjoyed by millions of players. The game has been built from the ground up to take full advantage of the power and capabilities of the current generation of gaming consoles. With faster and more exhilarating combat, more options to develop your commanders, a revamped user interface, intuitive new controls, and console-exclusive content, Legends is an experience that is only possible on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One. Players can also look forward to regular updates and lots of ongoing content updates and additions - with Japanese ships on the horizon, legendary commanders, massive air carriers, and more 4K-compatible maps arriving in the coming months!

"We are happy to finally introduce veteran captains and new players alike to World of Warships: Legends on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One,” said Kirill Peskov, Development Director at Wargaming St. Petersburg. “This is the second Wargaming title to launch on home consoles, and the quality of the experience is a testament to the incredible talent and passion of the development team in St. Petersburg. We hope players will enjoy embarking on this new voyage with us!”


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 on PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.
