November’s World of Warships update brings Japanese light cruisers into Early Access, submarines spanning Tier VI-X enter the tech tree, and a host of graphics improvements are introduced
Wargaming, publisher and developer of the naval multiplayer free-to-play game World of Warships, is bringing a shipment of brand new content in Update 0.11.10. With a range of Japanese light cruisers entering Early Access, submarines exiting Early Access and diving into the Tech Tree, alongside visual improvements introduced across a number of maps. On top of all this, World of Warships sees the introduction of a Battle Pass, and a new season of Clan battles.
Visual improvements across the board
Update 0.11.10 also brings a host of graphics improvements to the game. Visuals for a number of maps including “Mountain Range”, “North” and “Strait”have received highly detailed textures, and the “Northern Lights” map has also seen an overhaul to more realistically depict aurora borealis. Vegetation models have also been upgraded across all maps, and ships see improved graphics with a convincing wetting effect implemented, wave divergence changes and dynamic reflections all updated for improved realism.
Japanese light cruisers come to Early Access
Leading this update is a new range of Japanese light cruisers added to Early Access. This collection of medium-range ships boast a good firing range, with ships ranking Tier VIII upward featuring large quantities of main battery guns. These ships have high-damage and high-range torpedoes to destroy their enemies from afar, and are well camouflaged, enabling cruisers to get the surprise advantage in approaching opponents without being detected.
Players have a number of ways of securing these impressive vessels, with Agano, Gokase and Shimanto available in consecutive bundles, and Omono waiting as the final reward for combat missions.
Submarines sink into the tech tree
Following the introduction of playable submarines to Early Access in Update 0.11.9, German and American submarines have become researchable to all players by moving into the Tech Tree. Spanning Tier VI-X, these submarines are lethal, hidden under the water with powerful torpedoes. The German submarines offer players low visibility and long range acoustic torpedoes, whose tubes are able to reload simultaneously, while American submarines are equipped with short-range acoustic torpedoes and a rapid reload time.
Alongside this, each nation’s submarines are equipped with their own unique set of consumables. German U-boats offer access to both reserve battery unit and an improved submarine surveillance consumables, while the American vessels have the enhanced rudder gear and enhanced hydrophone consumables.
Battle Pass inbound
Rounding out this update, World of Warships is also releasing a new Battle Pass, which rewards daily and weekly combat missions with two different reward chains up for grabs, a free one and a premium one available for purchase.Four different Brawls will take place across this update, with the first stage kicking off on 7 November. On top of all this, the 19th season of the Barracuda Clan Battles begins shortly after Brawls on November 9, with a seven-on-seven format for Tier X ships.
