special editionEverything you need to know about Wargaming's aerial combat MMO.
The trouble with breaking into a game like World of Warplanes is that most of the people you run up against have been playing for months or years already, and are going to use that experience to smack you around mercilessly—and it's hard to get a feel for your fighter if you're being blown out of the sky every 45 seconds. That's a shortcoming the new 1.5 patch goes a long way toward addressing
The highlight of each Wargaming update is that they're so often accompanied by a lavish, if unrelated, trailer. World of Tanks has long since set the record for most insanely bombastic CGI videos, and so it seems as if World of Warplanes' teasers are going to be an altogether classier affair. I guess, for players of the game, the new maps, features and improvements introduced in today's 1.4
World of Tanks is looking to up its game in the coming year, and we’ll be lucky enough to have front row seats: the Wargaming developers will be releasing a series of new developer diaries to catalog improvements to the game. Changes will include new graphics, new vehicle physics, and more destructible and challenging environments.
It's nearly Christmas, what better time to refresh all of your peripherals - 'tis the season! We have another bunch of goodies to give away courtesy of the free-to-play multiplayer dogfighting game, World of Warplanes. Once again, we're giving away a Logitech G510s gaming keyboard, a G230 headset/mic combo, a G400s optical gaming mouse and some World of Warplanes gear, including a big metal
Wargaming today announced that the first update to its newly launched World of Warplanes will release later this week. It will include 14 new planes, two new battle arenas, and new epic and tiered achievements. If you log into the game between December 23 and January 16 you'll also get a free premium plane to celebrate the update, the Curtiss Model 68C Hawk III.
Are the cracks in your keyboards full of bits? Are the feet of your mouse worn down to useless, scratchy nubs? Does your headset sound crackly and weird? Well you're the perfect candidate to enter this week's World of Warplanes competition. We're giving away a Logitech G510s gaming keyboard, a G230 headset/mic combo, a G400s optical gaming mouse and some World of Warplanes gear, including a
A dogfighting multiplayer game focused on the aircraft of World War 2 and Korea never seemed like a natural fit for mouse and keyboard. World of Warplanes faced an almost insurmountable dilemma: if it was easy to control, it wouldn't feel like actual flying and dogfighting, and if it did feel authentic, then it would probably exclude most of its intended audience.
World of Warplanes, the free-to-play air combat game from the creators of World of Tanks, is now officially online. The game currently features the planes of five nations and over 100 different planes, but the real key to watch will be Wargaming’s ongoing updates and support. As was the case with World of Tanks, World of Warplanes can expect frequent updates and balances and a steady stream of
If Wargaming.net went full time into the CGI trailer making business, I'd probably be okay with that. Back in June they marked their 60 millionth registered World of Tanks player with pounding, industrial spectacle. Now, they've swooped into GamesCom with a World of Warplanes trailer that's just as dramatic, if a little more graceful. And hot on the teaser's tail is an announcement: the
Transcontinental flights are a tricky thing, which may be why World of Warplanes' open beta launch is so spread out. If you're in Russia or North America, Wargaming.net's free-to-play multiplayer dogfighter is ready for take-off. You can hop on board right now, assuming the website's pre-flight maintenance has finished by the time you read this. For us in Europe, it's not due to land until July
Vroom! That's the friendly roar of Wargaming's next entry in the war-vehicle niche, revving its engine in preparation for the cinematic battles ahead. It released the news today that its aerial combat MMO, World of Warplanes, has now got a fixed date for open beta, with a trail of warplane screenshots scattered hopefully like breadcrumbs before us.
Wargaming, the creators of the hugely successful World of Tanks and the upcoming World of Warships and World of Warplanes, has announced big changes in what gamers can and can’t purchase inside its games. Any item or upgrade that can provide an advantage in battle will no longer be available for purchase, putting and end to “pay-to-win”-style power disparities.
World of Tanks developer Wargaming has announced an update to its free-to-play gaming portal that may alter the way players make use of its online economy. Set to go live sometime during the open beta phase of the tank-blasting title's sister game, World of Warplanes, what's being called the Unified Premium Account should allow benefits earned in one Wargaming world to be used in any other.
Earlier this year the Telegraph ran a story on a British man's 15 year quest to recover Spitfires buried in Burma at the end of World War 2. Farmer, David Cundall, started the search when his friend Jim Pearce, an aviation archaeologist, met a group of US veterans who listed burying Spitfires in Burma as one of the silliest jobs they'd ever done. The Spitfire parts were tarred and waxed,
And that was the end of chess.” Viktor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. net, is describing the day his boyhood pastime died, in 1996, when IBM’s Deep Blue supercomputer defeated Garry Kasparov. Kislyi had been playing chess for seven years. He had competed in regional championships in his home city of Minsk while trying to master “the mother, father, grandfather, grandmother of all games,” as he
WARSOME! Sorry about that. Seriously though, PC Gamer issue 243 is an absolute monster of an issue. Some might say it's WARSOME. Sorry.
I'd like to ask the person who coined the term "dogfighting" a few questions. What are dogs like where you're from? Do they barrel roll? Do they loop the loop? Do they blast around spitting fire and making "nyeeeeoowwwm" noises? Obviously not. They're small furry mammals barely capable of falling over with grace. The odds of one taking off and engaging in a rousing bout of airborne combat are
The ocean isn't a safe place to be in World of Battleships' latest trailer, revealed at E3 this morning. It showcases the sunken remains of dozens of hulking ships and shows glimpses of how they got there.
Wargaming.net's airborne follow up to World of Tanks will be playable on the show floor at E3 next week. Attendees will be able to take seat at one of 28 booths and take part in World of Warplanes multiplayer matches for a chance to rack up points and take home prizes at the end of the event. There will also be a series of exhibition matches throughout E3 which will be livestreamed from the
