Tanks, Planes and now Battleships
Wargamming.net is showing no signs of slowing down after their success with World of Tanks as they have now announced a new game World of Battleships. Wargamming has stated that they ultimately want a "World of" trilogy with World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and now World of Battleships. So just to keep everyone up to date we now have WoT, WoW (2nd) and now WoB.
Anyone who has been following WoT's success could have seen this one coming as it makes sense to create a ship warfare game that is based on the same game model as WoT. Warship play style can be very similar to tanks as they move along 1 dimension and are usually able to take more than one hit. I am still curious to see how they are going to make airplanes work in this gaming model, but I have faith that Wargamming will be able to pull it off.
To date they haven't released any details about the new game, but the ships will use a similar economic system as WoT and ships will have the following traits - firepower, speed, armor and endurance. Sounds likes tanks on the water to me, but that's probably the best route to make this a good game. I will do my best to keep you guys up to date on any developments.
