About World of Warplanes
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.
At launch World of Warplanes will feature 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.
