Wargaming has announced that World of Warships has been updated to v0.8.2 that brings the full Royal Navy Aircraft Carrier line into the game along with a "host of new improvements" including tons of new ships available for doubloons, new camouflages and other in-game items. In addition, captains will literally be able to take off for outer space during a limited time event called the Intergalactic Games.
Of course, with an event that is so...different...from normal play and that begins on April 1st, the standard caveat of "FOOLED YA" applies just in case. At any rate, the event sends players to galaxies far, far away where battles can yield victors new "unique ships decked out in their sci-fi best.
Four space-themed battle modes will put your skills to the test:
- Rings of Saturn, a re-work of Epicenter mode where capturing areas will no longer be blocked if the enemy pursues an inner area capture, and more points will be rewarded for holding the inner ring
- Binary Star tests your quick thinking and strategy as you seize shrinking control points while simultaneously defending your territory
- Space Assault pits attacking and defending teams against one another — each with their own advantages; while attacking team will be able to respawn their ships, defending ships will be more resistant due to gradually recovering HP ability
- Torpedo Beat puts destroyers at center stage: torpedoes become your primary weapon in this explosive 5 vs 5 player team battle; with enhanced maneuverability and accelerated torpedo tubes, reloading is an ultimate survival test for destroyer specialists
