The 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe is coming, and while the novel coronavirus pandemic has changed how celebrations will take place this year, one tradition is being continued by World of Warships in the form of a virtual naval parade.

On Wednesday, May 6th, fans can tune in to the game’s official Twitch channel for a digital celebration of VE Day with a parade of some of the most iconic Allied warships, with live commentary from New York Times bestselling author and naval historian James D. Hornfischer, World of Warships streamers The Mighty Jingles and Drachinifel, and Wargaming’s very own Chieftain. There will also be random prize drops for viewers as well, with permanent VE-themed camouflages and ships up for grabs.

If you’re among those who wants to celebrate the event or just likes a little bit of history, this event definitely sounds like one to keep eyes on.
