New American content in July update!
06/19/2023 - Wargaming has unveiled two major July updates for the console and PC versions of the game. With the celebration of American Independence Day and a special adventure with an experienced commander as a reward, the game sails into summer on PC.
Console players can also enjoy the Fourth of July festivities, as World of Warships: Legends brings a lot of American content to the game, including a five-week campaign with the Tier VIII cruiser Tulsa as a reward. For Legends, the Popeye of the Sailor collaboration is also coming to the game, with two captains and a themed skin. Additionally, Legends will receive Fleets.
World of Warships: Legends gets American reinforcements
In this update, some American-themed content will be released for the console version of the game. Just in time for Independence Day, the classic five-week campaign "Always Fearless" will be released with 100 milestones. At the end of this campaign, the brand new Tier VIII cruiser Tulsa awaits as a reward. Additionally, more ships will find their way into Legends ports as the impressive Tier VIII cruiser Salem sets sail. There's also a special Lady Liberty captain's outfit that comes with a unique voice over.
The festivities don't stop there, as this update brings with it many random packages. Waiting in these packs is the new premium cruiser San Diego, equipped with semi armor piercing projectiles, and a special "Stars & Stripes" camouflage available for high ranking US ships.
Fleets have also weighed anchor and players can now create their own fleets and appoint their own commander and second-in-command. Other options include various upgrades and bonuses for all fleet members, as well as the ability to acquire crates - both through the new fleet-specific resource, Oil.
With this update, Legends also welcomes a special collaboration with Popeye! Popeye the Sailor and Bluto the Terrible join the game as commanders, along with their flags, a patch, and a special spinach-themed skin.
From America to the Mediterranean in World of Warships
Independence Day celebrations continue in the PC version of the game, with players able to earn special themed tokens through in-game activities. These tokens can be used to obtain many permanent camouflages as well as a Statue of Liberty commander with six skill points. Players can then head from the U.S. to Europe to explore the new line of European destroyers with the Conquest of the Mediterranean adventure. At the end of the adventure, the Tier IX destroyer Jäger awaits as a nice reward with permanent camouflage and commander Felix von Paar.
In addition to all these new features, a new Battle Pass was introduced with the July update of World of Warships. With daily and weekly rewards to unlock, players can earn the final reward of seven containers full of rare bonuses as well as a captain with twelve skill points.
World of Warships is available on Steam, and World of Warships: Legends is available for PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
