The Closed Beta for World of Warplanes has officially taken off today, announces Wargaming.net. Players are invited to experience an expanded amount of in-game content and new features!
Available to new test pilots are four warplane classes including fighters, ground-attack planes, heavy fighters, and carrier-based aircraft spanning 59 different models from Germany, the US, and the U.S.S.R. Four unique maps are playable, where players can devastate with new weaponry like bombs and rockets against targets such as anti-aircraft guns. A new tutorial is also implemented for those who didn't take part in the Alpha.
World of Warplanes is Wargaming.net's follow-up to their incredibly popular MMO, World of Tanks, which features massive PvP battles where players take to their World War II era tanks rather than a traditional fantasy-style MMO setting.
In World of Warplanes, players will participate in a massively multiplayer flight combat action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. The armored warfare theme previously seen in World of Tanks is continued, but escalated to a new level with full-scale in-game virtual pilot careers spanning from 1930's biplanes to Korean War jet fighters.
