World of Warships’s Bismarck Campaign has launched

It’s patch week for Wargaming’s seafaring World of Warships MMO as the studio lets the Bismarck Campaign out of drydock. From today until June 7th, characters with service records 8 and up can “take part in the most iconic North Atlantic naval operation and decorate your ships with special camouflage that changes the exterior visual look of the ship, including its textures and geometry.”

 The campaign is based on the historic chase of May 1941, with seven missions containing eight tasks each. Take part in operation Rheinübung, avenge the destruction of British battlecruiser HMS Hood, and take ships of different classes into battle against German raiders, attack enemies with torpedo bombers and more!”

The update further includes a new collections feature, updated user interface, new ship skins, updated ship exterior graphics, new signal flags, and two new ships: French tier VI cruiser De Grasse and American tier VIII destroyer Kidd.

Meanwhile, yesterday Wargaming announced that its Google-backed “multimedia VR exploration of the last of the British Royal Navy C-class WWII destroyers” is launching on June 12th in London for those lucky local folks in attendance!

a real shame (sorta) that Bismarck or Tirpitz never tested their metal (pun intended) against Mighty Mo… the American battleship Missouri. They’d have had their butts handed to them!

I jumped ship from the SWTOR universe and found this game to be a decent diversion. There’s no story…obviously…but the gameplay is fantastic. They try to earnestly mix some historical context in with a compressed battlefield. Also, the F2P model isn’t a big ripoff or punishing like SWTOR. You can actually play the game and not feel like you’re gimped until you throw money at it. Also, “End game” content is not where everyone resides. Some even swear by lower level ships. All in all, I’m enjoying it. The refer a friend package gives you a ship after playing and after leveling up a bit…plus some extras. I truly wish I knew of it when I started. Here’s my link…I get some stuff(max 3 awards per acct)…the new player gets a serious headstart: https://playtogether.worldofwarships.com/invite/DEzWKKX

It’s a wonderful game. The graphics are amazing. Seeing the hellfire you can rain down on your enemy from a cruiser or battleship is breathtaking. Taking down a behemoth of iron and steel with a volley of torpedoes is extremely satisfying. Carrier management and the fighter and bomber and torpedo plane missions are a great mini-game unto itself. The sinking animations are varied and beautiful (and a little sad) to watch.
I have sometimes queued up Celine Dion singing “My Heart will Go On” watching my ship go down, laughing my butt off whilst watching it sink dramatically beneath the waves.

Would like to give Extra History a shoutout for their ongoing mini-series of the Hunt for the Bismarck (sponsored by Wargaming). If you would like a bite-sized dose of the history behind the in game campaign, I recommend you go check them out.

Wargaming has always been better at historical accuracy than its competitors. That’s true of World of Tanks and World of Warships, and the little-played (sadly) World of Warplanes. All gorgeous games with an eye for historical accuracy in the hardware.
