Wargaming participated in the world's largest and longest-running professionals-only game industry event Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2014 which took place at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif., during March 17-21, 2014. In GDC 2014, they showcased a lineup of projects, including World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, the recently unveiled enhancements set for World of Tanks in 2014, and new details on World of Tanks Blitz. The following World of Warplanes arts and screenshots were newly unveiled this time.
World of Warplanes is a flight combat MMO action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. Throwing players into a never-ending tussle for air dominance, the game allows aircraft enthusiasts to pursue full-scale careers as virtual pilots, earning their wings in intense 15-vs-15 battles where supremacy in the air depends not only on a fast trigger ringer, but also coordinated teamwork.
Players can choose from four main warplane classes: swift fighters capable of engaging enemies in close dogfights, heavy fighters with deadly straight attacks and formidable armor, ground-attack planes able to unleash bombs and other armaments against even the most fortified ground targets, and carrier-based aircraft, ideal for air-to-air combat, surface attacks, and reconnaissance missions.
World of Warplanes features more than 100 vehicles from Germany, the Soviet Union, USA, Japan, and Great Britain. Every warplane features multiple modular configurations, allowing for customization across weapons, ammo types, engines, and other aircraft components. These components can be mixed and matched to provide players with the ability to outfit their warbird for any combat situation or role.
Accessible, Deep Gameplay
A realistic flight model, coupled with multiple control schemes and a wide variety of historically accurate plane models, provides an engaging experience that is accessible to any type of gamer. Including two mouse control schemes, gamepad, mouse and keyboard combination, and flight stick, the game provides virtual pilots with a vast range of control options to choose the one that fits their play style best.
