Weighs Anchor



London,
UK, Paris, FR and San Francisco, CA (16th August, 2011)

— Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame publisher and
developer, announces style="font-style: italic;">World of Battleships,
a free-to-play naval action MMO based on epic sea battles of the 20th
century that will complete the “World of” war
trilogy.



Keeping with the best traditions of the series, style="font-style: italic;">World of Battleships
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.



Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi states: “Humans always needed
to conquer the elements — earth, water and air. With style="font-style: italic;">World of Tanks,
World
of Warplanes
and style="font-style: italic;">World of Battleships
we will offer players to conquer all, simultaneously.”
