World of Warships Legends Beta

Included in the World of Warships Legends beta are the titular legends, warships and also special commanders. These commanders helm warships and bring their own skills and abilities to the game.

Two commanders revealed as part of the beta announcement are US admiral Norman Scott and Japanese tactician Isoroku Yamamoto. 

Also new to World of Warships Legends are combat missions which reward players with XP and other prizes. Combat Missions can be tackled solo or in groups and come in daily and weekly flavours.

With voice chat now included, Wargaming is making it even easier for players to team up and sail the seas.

Wargaming has also revealed that the user interface in the console version has been given a significant overhaul. Based on feedback from alpha testers, “in-game interfaces have been simplified for a smoother, more accessible player experience, with many other tweaks and adjustments to battles added.”
