During Gamescom today Wargaming made it clear that Submarines are coming to World of Warships. Closed testing on submarines is set to launch in the next couple of weeks and as usual, players who are participating in the World of Warships Supertest will be the first to try it out.
The first test will include 4 submarines representing the US Navy and the German Kriegsmarine. More details about the submarine models are set to be announced later on during Gamescom.
“World of Warships has continually evolved with new gameplay mechanics, innovative game modes and rich content since its release,” said Artur Plociennik, Executive Producer of World of Warships. “The uniqueness of submarines poses very interesting design challenges for our team, which we hope to be able to turn into novel new gameplay tactics for our players and to make online naval combat more exciting than ever before. We are always looking for new ways to make our audience happy and we’re aiming to fulfill every player’s fantasy of WW2 submarine operations.”
Of course for fans of the game, it has been clear that this has been coming since Halloween last year when Steampunk submarines were added to the game for a bit of limited time fun. Previously, however, Wargaming had said they would never add submarines to World of Warships. But as the demand for them never faded it was really only a matter of time.
As we learn more about the Submarines we will be sure to update this news post.
