Wargaming Details Its 2017 Plans for World of Warships

There’s a lot to look forward to.

2017 is going to be a big year for World of Warships and, in a new developer diary, Wargaming has outlined just how big it will be.

The below video offers a 10-minute look into what Wargaming has on deck for World of Warships in 2017, but if you’d rather not sit through a video, you can also peruse the included bullet list of features:

  • More branches for the British tech tree
  • Two new branches of French ships
  • Soviet destroyer changes! Look for two destroyer sub-branches: "Destroyer Leaders" and "Artillery Destroyers"
  • Legendary Commanders
  • Earnable ship upgrades
  • Commander Skill Tree changes
  • PvE (Cooperative) missions
  • Clans and clan battles
  • Sound improvements: Dynamic music and the ability to modify the sound files of shots, torpedoes and more!
  • Graphics improvements

In addition to the above features, a new line of German destroyer ships is also planned for release in 2017. These new ships will join the German battleships and cruisers which are already in the game.
