'World Of Warships' Update Adds French Cruisers, Azur Lane Content, New Season And More Across All Platforms

by Rainier on May 16, 2022 @ 8:52 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.

On May 19th Wargaming will launch its latest content update, bringing with it brand new French Cruisers, a fresh batch of Azur Lane content, alongside fully introducing Italian Destroyers into the Tech Tree.

In addition to these headline content additions, update 0.11.4 also brings new seasons of Ranked and Clan Battles, and the introduction of the praised Arms Race mode in Random and co-op Battles.

Allez les Bleus!
Three new French cruisers make their debut appearance in this update. Available in early access, players will be able to take the helm of the Tier VIII Cherbourg, Tier IX Brest, and Tier X Marseille. These new ships, projects of the French Navy before creating the famous Dunkerque and Richelieu class, will bolster the existing roster of French cruisers, featuring large-caliber guns mounted on the bow. Whilst working best at long to medium range, with the help of their powerful secondary battery guns, these new ships can also pack a punch in close-range encounters. To celebrate their arrival, the Port of Marseille has been updated with a fresh coat of paint.

The Return of Azur Lane
The girls who soar on the seas are back in Update 0.11.4 armed with an assortment of new content for players to show off. Available during the update are ship camouflages for the Iowa, Indomitable, and Shōkaku, alongside 6 new commanders include the famous Bismarck and New Jersey as well as commemorative flags. The ship AL Aurora and AL Azuma will expand the roaster of Azur Lane ships in the game.

Iconic Italian Destroyers Available for Research
Following their initial rollout, Italian Destroyers will now become obtainable within the tech tree. Equipped with fast reloading torpedoes, they are bound to make a splash while taking their foes down with breathtaking speed. The entire branch of Italian destroyers is available for players to research with the release of Update 0.11.4. You can learn the details about new Italian ships here.

New Season of Ranked Battles and more!
Alongside the return of the fan-favorite Arms Race game mode in Random and Co-op Battles, Update 0.11.4 brings a brand new season of Ranked Battles to World of Warships. This season, in all leagues, battles will take place in a 6v6 format on Tier VIII and IX ships with players earning their stars to progress through the rankings. The new season of Clan Battles, named "Cayman," will pit clans against each other in Tier X and Superships for valuable steel, coal and signal flags!

Alongside this, console players on World of Warships: Legends can experience the new Pan-European Destroyers in Early Access and take on the five-week long Back to Belfast Campaign to earn the powerful Tier VII version of Belfast ‘43.
