Get ready, World of Warships is set to release on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S in November, with the PS5 to follow in December.

We’re not sure what – if any – optimizations will be made for those next gen consoles, so we’ll have to wait and see. Additionally, the Japanese destroyer tech tree will be split this update starting at Tier IV, bringing some alternatives to the tried and true Japanese torpedo boats. These include the Minekaze, Hatsuharu, Shiratsuyu, and Akizuki.

Moreover, two new campaigns will run during the update. For the next four weeks, players can work on the Yasen Butai Leader campaign to unlock the Tier VII Japanese large cruiser Azuma. The Bureau is getting two new projects for players to work on, namely unlocking the Legendary Tier destroyers Khabarovsk and Shimakaze.

Gameplay improvements are en route as well. This are most notably in the form of a new consumable for battleships: Enhanced Secondary Targeting. This will significantly improve the accuracy of your secondary battery guns for 30 seconds, which can couple with a new skill for brawling commanders, as well as tweaks to a few other abilities.

Finally, you’ll also get a sneak peek at what is in store for this Black Friday, including the 4 new Black Fleet ships: Mutsu B, Indianapolis B, Atago B, and Blyskawica B! This will be the first reappearance of the Blyskawica in over a year, including her unique commander–Jerzy ?wirski. These exclusive ships will be available for a limited time, and the Atago B in particular will only be available via the new Black Friday containers.
