With War Thunder’s controllable navy feature still a ways off and Wargaming.net’s World of Warships release still a ways off (heck they haven’t even launched World of Warplanes yet), there is a niche void to be filled for those who desire a F2P naval warfare MMO. Queue Navy Field 2 from Nexon, an MMORTS which focuses exclusively on naval engagements.
Details are sparse at the moment, but we do know that players will have access to over 500 ships from World War 1 and II spread across 7 nations. The ships themselves can be customized with a variety of weapons and armor enhancements. The MMORTS is focused on large scale battles with players clashing with up to 64 participants. That’s quite the confrontation.
The closed beta is set for March 27th with signups available now. The beta itself is scheduled to run until April 10th. You can check out the official teaser site and signup for the beta here.
