World of Warships’ 0.8.11 update brings about some holiday gifts.

In this update, you’ll be able to build your own warships, receive Santa’s Gift containers, and also have the chance for premium ships and other rewards. All of this starts on December 19. Here are the details.

Additionally, Wargaming will begin a Save the Children 24-hour charity stream, aiming to raise $25,000 dollars before the clock runs out. Players can donate by buying various in-game items, from premium ships to rare camouflages, with the proceeds going to Save the Children. 

Logging into World of Warships will also receive four Santa’s Gift containers, each likely to contain a premium ship or other valuable rewards. Containers will also be gifted by participating in in-game activities, shipbuilding, completing directives or through the Armory. Snowflakes, which are holiday victory bonuses with large rewards which can be collected by playing all ships of Tier V and above, are also making a return. 

Want to build your own warship? The Tier X large cruiser Puerto Rico is waiting to be finished in your Dockyard. You can complete the warship in stages, from laying the keel to installing weaponry and other equipment, by spending special Shipbuilding Tokens found in the daily missions and shipments, and the new Event Directives. A new Shipbuilding Collection, with 20 new collectible elements, is featured in the update. Each completed sub collection will reward you with one day of Premium Account. 

Finally, the visuals improve on the Trident and Neighbors maps, as well as the Hamburg and Marseille Ports, with the ocean waves and surface receiving more realism. You can learn more about this update here.
