Wargaming has brought on actor and martial artist Steven Seagal to be World of Warships’personal Heroic Battle Advisor.”

“Claiming victory in World of Warships takes more than raw power,” says the studio. “You need focused strength, a tactical mind, and a winning strategy. We found a man who has all three.”

“Wargaming is proud to announce that Steven Seagal is now the World of Warships’ personal Heroic Battle Advisor. His resume speaks for itself: he’s a man who’s hard to kill, always out for justice, and willing to make an executive decision. With numerous victories against the odds under his belt (and as a guy who knows a thing or two about warships), Steven is the only man up to the task.”

In other Wargaming news, Gamasutra reports that Wargaming-owned studio WG Cells, which was picked up and renamed by Wargaming last year to develop a World of Tanks mobile property, has laid off the entirety of its workforce. More when we have it.
