World of Warships March update heralds its April Fools’ Day Piñata Hunt


All right folks, pin a shiny gold star – or a set of googly eyes – on World of Warships, which has already laid the foundation for its annual April Fools’ Day event more than two weeks early: It’s called Piñata Hunt.

“It’s no joke, this is for real! Starting at the end of March, the Piñata Hunt event is set to bring vibrant color to game with its eccentric battles just in time for April Fool’s Day! Two teams of seven Tier VIII–IX ships will go head-to-head on a modified and uniquely decorated version of the Hotspot map in a race to sink a special Piñata ship. As part of the fun, all ships that compete in the event will be dressed in a random selection of event-themed camouflages, and they will explode with a brand-new animation when they get taken out. As a reward for their ‘smashing’ efforts, players will receive special Piñata Tokens which can be exchanged for themed permanent camouflages, a patch, and a commemorative flag in the Armory.”

Yes please. There’s actually more to the patch than the setup for Piñata Hunt; the March update also includes 10 Commonwealth cruisers into what Wargaming is calling early access. The studio has tweaked submarines and fully launched several American aircraft carriers as well. Check out the whole patch notes, then prep your googly eyes for event day.
