The free-to-play, action-packed naval experience World of
Warships: Legends has been in Game Preview for a few months on Xbox One, but
now it’s become a fully-fledged offering. To celebrate the release, developers
Wargaming have also added a new campaign, German destroyers and early access to
The new update coincides with the full release of World of Warships: Legends and as a result, players are getting the opportunity to take part in a campaign to earn the lonely queen of the north – the battleship Tirpitz. In order to receive the full benefit of the ‘Hunt for Tirpitz’ campaign though, it’s recommended that players get Admiralty Backing.
This campaign will be available for five weeks, from today (August 12th) until September 15th, providing the opportunity to progress through 100 levels by completing a myriad of challenges and weekly missions. Along the way through each of the 100 campaign levels, you will be showered in all sorts of rewards ranging from credits to premium time. But that’s not all as you will also receive a new campaign currency that gives you the chance to play using some of the upcoming German battleships, such as the Gneisenau or Bayern.
The German battleships in early access are renowned for their durability and firepower in a brawl, but their potential at close-range can become a real handicap as the distance from targets increases. Prepare to adapt your strategies to fit the new play-style to make the best use of these battleships and develop new tactics in order to counter these behemoths. Representing German battleships as a top-tier premium leviathan, the Tirpitz epitomizes the new play-style of the German battleships: it’s huge, ridiculously tough, and possesses potent secondary cannons. The Tirpitz also packs an unexpected surprise for a battleship – torpedoes!
And you can fully experience the devastating efficiency of Germany’s destroyers in this update, from the V-170 to the Z-23. These destroyers are infamous for being filled to the brim with firepower, occasionally packing cruiser-calibre guns. Such powerful guns alongside rapidly-reloading torpedoes and sonar can really help you to punch above your weight class.
Furthermore, with it being the full release of World of Warships: Legends, Achievements and Trophies are now available to attain. So, will you be checking out the latest update on Xbox One and PlayStation 4? If you’re not sure what to expect, we’d recommend a read of our hands-on preview to find out more about the game itself.
