Wargaming.net introduces a new set of screenshots and the debut trailer for their new flight combat MMO World of Warplanes. The screens will be among other game content to be unveiled to media during personal presentations in the business area of Gamescom 2011.

Along with the screenshots, Wargmaing.net is glad to reveal the information on the aircraft powers that will be presented in the game. Upon its beta release, World of Warplanes will feature around 60 airplanes from Germany, USSR, and USA, with British and Japanese planes to be added with the further content updates. New branches and new planes will be added gradually over the process of development as it is done in World of Tanks, and the total number might reach several hundred aircraft.

World of Warplanes is the flight combat MMO action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. The game continues the armored warfare theme marked in the highly-acclaimed World of Tanks and will throw players into a never-ending tussle for air dominance.

Based purely on aircraft setting, World of Warplanes will allow players to build full-scale careers of virtual pilots offering machines of several key eras, staring from 1930’s with biplanes and up to Korean War jet fighters that led the way to modern air forces.

World of Warplanes will feature a wide range of warbirds, each of them unique in their effectiveness and behavior. Virtual pilots will choose from three main warplane classes – single-engine light fighters capable of engaging enemies in close dogfights, heavy fighters with their deadly straight attacks, and strafing aircrafts, the fearsome threat for ground targets.

Every plane will feature multiple variations of ammo types, engines, and other crucial modules, and their various combinations will allow to pick the optimal configuration for the most effective behavior in combat.

    To all of you who want WOT, WOWP, and WOB combined, and to those of you who think it would be huge and impossible to make and play… Someone already made that game. It was called Battlefield 1942 and it was an epic step forward in war games. Still fun to play in my opinion, even more so with the Desert Combat expansion added to it. The maps were just as big, maybe bigger, and relatively detailed. The game-play was somewhat similar (from a Tank perspective), plus it had a huge number of vehicles you could pilot. Jeeps, trucks, cars, tanks, artillery, missile launchers, fighters, bombers, cargo planes, boats, subs, and even the ships and aircraft carriers. Epic on a massive scale.

    So could they do it? No question, they could. Will they? Probably not. But it’s fun to think about taking off from a carrier, dive bombing your pathetic little T1 Cunningham, while I weave in and out of anti-air fire from the coast, parachuting down to your base, smoking your little Arty with my RPG, and capping your base! Oh wait. I HAVE done that. 😉

    anyone saying put all 3 together are idiots first off the space that requires would b ungodly second off all of u complaining about the job thing why do u give a dam? if they want to hire more ppl then good for them gets more jobless ppl of the street dont u think? third all 3 battles going on in one game? have u ever played on wot? lagg their on low can get pretty bad now imagine tanks being shot by planes while planes are getting blown up by ships that are being shot at by tanks and planes? wayyyyy to much crap going on there also do any of yall know how long world of tanks has been out? perhaps these are new ideas now imagine they say hey lets merge wot with these games well theyd need to do hours of work for the merge and some data would most likely b lost along the way leading to plenty of po’d wot players all in all making it all one is extreamly impractical

    I like the idea of having all three games separate but being able xfer your xp. Now I also agree with a server dedicated to combining all three games only for this pirpose, clan wars. I think if only clan wars involved all three elements then it would require alot more planing from the clans. Ships bombarding the coast while the tanks take the offensive while being covered by air support. Soundss like alot of fun to me, and I know my clanmates ( being the bunch of old coots that they are) would really enjoy this aspect.

    Also, I cant find and info on a possible beta release date, anyone know?

    maybe they should just make it a reaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLYY BIGGGGGG GAME, where its like a dynamic world, all battles are happening, you just gotta choose what you want to do ^^

    This guys are BORED. They create world of tanks, now World of Battleships and World of Warplanes… Come on… get everything on 1 game and call it World of War… Just dont make a crafting system and you’re all good.

      1- That game would be over 10 GB and most people would not be able to play it because of its size
      2- Better to keep things separate so people can choose what they want to play
      3- They are not “bored” they make these games for the public to play. This is also their JOB. You try making games when your bored. They are 100% (or at least 90% :P) dedicated to making these games
      4- That “one game” would require more system requirements and also, imagine the lag on it. Wouldn’t work out.

      • likeswords on August 19, 2011

        I don’t agree with you but the part of that they are dedicated to make the games.
        But, there are 3 games, one of tanks, one of warplanes and one of ships.
        EVERYONE will play as something like these, right? WHY?
        You make 3 different games, means- more job to do, more updates, more work for the emplyees of the company to keep the game up and more costs, so I think this is stupid, and instead they could make them all to one game, get more maps, maybe ones who people will play only as an warplane or as tank or as warship and also create combined maps, this will lower the costs, lower the working time and will be much easier than switching games as twitchy3.0 said.

    • twitchy3.0 on August 18, 2011

      in the world of thanks login screen there is a drop down menu that will have all three games so u cna switch very fast and very easily and like the other poster said the main reason for not doing all three games into one is because that would make the system requirments go up alot more and some ppl might just like warplanes and not tanks or battleships and not warplanes or tanks so they can just play which ever they like

  9. Reavstone on August 17, 2011

    Same here, but on the Wot news is that wargaming.net is making a third one as well known as World of Battleships.

    • Reavstone on August 17, 2011
