World of Warships Second Beta Weekend

World of Warships - news

Wargaming has just announced the second Beta Weekend for World of Warships. A three day testing event dubbed "Wings Over the Water" that opens on January 23, running until January 25. The company has also published a brand new trailer, which you can watch right below.

"World of Warships’ first Beta weekend was a great success," said Daniil Volkov, World of Warships Development Director. "There was an undeniable demand for the fourth class of warships—the aircraft carriers. The unique RTS style of gameplay that they have, together with the extension of tech trees up to Tier 10 and introduction of Divisions will offer a wealth of great content for players and open up a new dimension to their gameplay."



This event will introduce to the game the aircraft carrier class, bringing the total class of warships up to four. Aircraft carriers offer a unique angle to combat, delivering RTS style gameplay and the ability to launch three types of warplane squadrons (fighters, dive bombers and torpedo bombers) against any opponent.

With ten tiers available, testers will be able to level up and unlock a few of America's and Japan's iconic military vessels: the USA has the Pensacola cruiser and Fletcher destroyer; Japan has the Nagato and Yamato battleships and the Shimakaze destroyer.

And for the first time, players will be able to team up in Divisions, to test themselves and two others against other commanders.
