'World Of Warships' Longest Night of Museums 2022 Initiative Commences Next Week

by Rainier on May 12, 2022 @ 11:49 a.m. PDT

World Of Warships is a free-to-play naval action MMO based on sea battles of the 20th century that complete the "World of" war trilogy.

Keeping with the best traditions of the series, World of Warships will offer a straightforward interface, easy-to-use controls, and a common economic system that will allow players to distribute resources between the three games for the ultimate progress in each of them.

The large assortment of available warships will give various tactical opportunities, as all the machines have a unique combination of firepower, speed, armor, and endurance.

Various naval maps with changing weather conditions will enrich the gameplay, and the realistic graphics will transport players into the epic battles that changed the course of human history.

Wargaming has released the details of its Longest Night of Museums initiative, designed to publicize and support naval museums across the world.

Beginning May 18, 2022, World Of Warships will publish one museum showcase article per week, giving insight into each museum’s naval history. Museum curators will bring their museums to life in these articles providing fascinating information, assets, and historical details for their respective museums.

World Of Warships has hidden characters in the articles to encourage readers to read all the stories and uncover the special bonus code. The first person to crack the code will win a five day, all-expenses-paid trip for two people to one of the naval museums featured in the articles.

These articles will also feature embedded video footage of last year’s Longest Night of Museums event, which had over 1.4 million people attend a virtual tour of the more than 15 naval museums from around the world which participated via Twitch and YouTube.

With the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, museums have been hit incredibly hard over the past two years. Beyond the financial impact, many lack their own digital platforms to share their exhibits and make their desired impact on the world remotely. Therefore Wargaming, the developer of the world’s most historically accurate, naval battle video game World Of Warships, continues to support these museums and bring them in front of a wider audience.

The event has been publicly celebrated by the World Of Warships community, which stands at over 50 million players, and museums from last year’s event lauded the impact it has had on their organizations:

“Joining in the international Longest Night of Museums was a great experience for us. We got to communicate directly with people from all over the world, many who had probably never heard of us before,” said Johannes Olsson, Museum Educator, Maritiman, Göteborg, Sweden. “At the same time, we got interesting glimpses of some of the sister museums all over the world, many of whom we would dearly like the opportunity to visit in person. We look very much forward to joining the event this year as well.”

“Longest Night of Museums is an incredible tribute to the valour of the men and women throughout history whose heroic actions in battle have shaped the world we live in today,” said Elissa Lines, Executive Director, Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum. “We are proud to tell the Pearl Harbor story in this new and innovative way.”
