World of Warships: Legends, the console version of Wargaming’s naval military MMO series, celebrates three years in service today with a big anniversary update. The game introduces 14 new Tier VIII ships and rolls out another five-week, 100-stage campaign several months after Operation Pride of Prussia.
The first wave of Tier VIII ships is now available to fans, 12 of which can be obtained through the Tech Tree. The 12 ships will represent various countries, such as the United States, Japan, Germany and the USSR. However, the two remaining Tier VIII ships from Germany and France can be found in the auction and at the end of the Ambassador campaign. Wargaming is preparing its next wave of Tier VIII ships throughout the year and will be available for players to drop by other means, such as the desktop and in-game store.
As August 12 marks the third anniversary of World of Warships: Legends, Wargaming is bringing early in-game activities to fans. Players will receive a birthday present for logging into the game, get the chance to participate in a web event, and more as the day approaches. Two new projects are also expanding the Research Office’s offer: an anniversary project and another centered on the legendary French cruiser Colbert.
In addition to the big celebration, another five-week 100 milestone style campaign. Players can take part in the L’Ambassadeur campaign and win the new premium Tier VIII French battleship République, featuring eight 17-inch guns and a strong anti-aircraft suite. As usual, the new campaign establishes a new in-game rewards booth that rewards players with the highest ranked non-legendary tiered ships.
You can find out more about everything available today on the World of Warships: Legends website.
