Wargaming is pleased to announce that British aircraft carriers will be added to World of Warships, expanding upon the currently available US and Japanese Carrier lines!
With the launch of Update 0.8.1, three Royal navy aircraft carriers enter the fray through early access. Mighty tier IV Hermes, tier VI Furious, and tier VIII Implacable will be made available upon completing new missions and Directives of the “Fly! Strike! Win!” in-game event. A full release of the Royal Navy aircraft carrier branch will follow in this month’s patch update.
British planes come with generous HP, which allows more daring attacks against ships with strong AA defenses. And while these aircrafts are somewhat slower than the American and Japanese naval planes, they pack more of a wallop, thanks to extra rockets and high-level bombs, that makes them unique in this class.
Additionally, from February 28 to March 14, players who log in each day will receive free Air Supply containers in World of Warships. These containers include — Naval Aviation collection, camos, signal flags, resources, and combat missions that can help players earn additional ships.
Lastly, upcoming patch 0.8.1 will introduce three key new changes to the gameplay of World of Warships. These include changes to the way Search Radar works, along with interface updates, and a change to how ships suffer flooding damage. For more information, please see the developer diary here.
