Starting this April, Wargaming will be sending millions of World of Warships players from the seas to outer space for a limited time event, The Space Warships Intergalactic Games. This event is part of update 0.8.2 and will boldly take captains to planets far, far away for exciting battles that are out of this world. Watch the new trailer below….
During the event players will have the opportunity to try out twelve unique ships, including the powerful Alldestroyer, the sleek and regal Zaya, a brand-new ship to this year’s games – the Century Hawk, plus many more. This event will see players return to the world of Appulse and battle it out on three new maps, the Ironium crystal Risus map, the desolate Ludus map and the eerie Navis map.
Four new space-themed battle modes will challenge the skills of ship captains, these include:
- Rings of Saturn, a re-work of Epicenter mode where capturing areas will no longer be blocked if the enemy pursues an inner area capture, and more points will be rewarded for holding the inner ring.
- Binary Star tests your quick thinking and strategy as you seize shrinking control points while simultaneously defending your territory.
- Space Assault pits attacking and defending teams against one another — each with their own advantages; while attacking team will be able to respawn their ships, defending ships will be more resistant due to gradually recovering HP ability.
- Torpedo Beat puts destroyers at center stage: torpedoes become your primary weapon in this explosive 5 vs 5 player team battle; with enhanced maneuverability and accelerated torpedo tubes, reloading is an ultimate survival test for destroyer specialists.
Also with update 0.8.2 will be the arrival of the Royal Navy aircraft carrier tech tree. Four ships will be in this tree, including the brand new tier X Audacious and the tier IV Hermes, tier VI Furious, tier VIII Implacable, all of which were previously available in early access.
The Space Warships Intergalactic Games will begin on 1st April.
