Wargaming.net today announced an update for flight combat MMO World of Warplanes with not only a completely overhauled flight model, but improved mouse controls in the US and RU clusters!
"It took us six months to make sure every tidbit of the flight model was just right, and we are pleased and happy with the results", said Anton Sitnikau, World of Warplanes Producer. "Now that we've maximized the comfort and ergonomics of aircraft controls, tactical thinking and skills have really come to the forefront."
Changed with the goal of adding more thrills to aerial combat and a more dynamic feel to gameplay, this change also allows players to focus less on flight efficiency and more on their mastery of technical skills. Learn more about these changes in the newest developer diary:
As you can see in some of the cuts above, the flight model and controls go along with heavily reworked graphics, adding extra realism to intense dogfighting.
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 continues, but is escalated to a new level with full-scale in-game virtual pilot careers spanning from 1930's biplanes to Korean War jet fighters.
