World of Warships brings British boats to bear

    
5

The British Navy just got an expansion in World of Warships today with the introduction of several aircraft carriers, adding to the vehicular combat title’s existing carriers from the nations of Japan and the USA. Three boats are specifically arriving to World of Warships in early access with update 0.8.1: the tier IV Hermes, tier VI Furious, and tier VIII Implacable.

British carriers feature planes with very high HP, making them slower than their American or Japanese cousins but more aggressive against ships with strong anti-aircraft defenses. Additionally, these planes reportedly pack a punch thanks to additional rockets and high-level bombs.

The three carriers added in update 0.8.1 can be earned from completing new missions and directives in the “Fly! Strike! Win!” in-game event. Additionally, those who log in to the game between Thursday, February 28th, and Thursday, March 14th, will receive Air Supply containers full of goodies like camos, resources, and combat missions to help unlock extra ships. Finally, there will be a number of other updates made with patch 0.8.1, which are all detailed in the video below.

Is it just me thinking someone else doing a voiceover? lol

Feels like lips and voice do not synch

Either way I have never tried this, only tried world of tanks. I guess they are similar

No it’s not just you. There is an English voice over Dasha’s speech. If you listen closely you can hear her speaking her native language.

I play both. Well, I haven’t played tanks in almost a year which was when I switched over to playing ships. Yep, similar setup, yet different enough that (for me) it doesn’t feel like a “sea version of tanks”.

I see, I dont know her its why I asked. I guess with ships matches are slower and more strategic than WoT?

Umm…it’s about the same to be honest. Most matches take about the same time. I usually play a Destroyer (DD) which is light tank equivalent but with torpedoes that hit WAAAAAAYYYY harder than any light tank in the game versus the big boys. I put 5 of 8 torps on a Tier 7 or 8 Batttleship yesterday with over 3/4 health and sent him to the bottom.

Tanks seems more FPS to me (run & gun unless you TD) whereas Ships is more…thoughtful?
