World of Warships is going mobile with World of Warships Blitz
Dominate the high seas on the go when World of Warships hits iOS and Android next month.
World of Warships, the sea-based spin-off of the tremendously popular tank-warfare game World of Tanks, is plotting a course for uncharted waters in the new year with World of Warships Blitz.
Coming to both iOS and Android devices on 18 January, World of Warships Blitz condenses the large-scale naval combat of the PC game into a format better suited to mobile devices. Along with a selection of single-player missions designed to sturdy up your sea legs, the game will feature seven-vs-seven multiplayer battles that play out much the same as they do on the PC version – albeit with a streamlined control scheme aimed at facilitating a faster, pick-up-and-play experience.
At launch, 90 warships from Germany, Japan, the USA and the USSR will be available, but it's likely that more ships from the PC game's roster of over 200 ships will gradually make their way to Blitz in the future. Importantly, Blitz will make use of the unified Wargaming.net ID, which means any progress you make in Blitz will carry over to the PC version and vice versa.
“As a mobile game, World of Warships Blitz is casual, easy to learn and super competitive,” said Thaine Lyman, Head of Shooters at Wargaming Mobile. “Short battles, easy controls, and an impressive roster of ships are all right there from launch. We’re happy to welcome World of Warships Blitz into the Wargaming Mobile portfolio.”
Like the PC version, World of Warships Blitz will be completely free-to-play, with the option to purchase premium ships if you so choose. You can pre-register for the game right now at the World of Warships Blitz website, and you'll score a free Aurora Premium ship when the game launches for your troubles.
