The Transformers Come To World Of Warships
Interesting pairing but they have done some unusual promotions before. I do hope they have a very wide set of choices and also allow players to keep them long-term.
AUSTIN, TX (August 3, 2020) — Wargaming and Hasbro, Inc. have announced today that Transformers will be coming to popular naval combat games World of Warships on PC and World of Warships: Legends on consoles for a limited time thanks to this exciting new collaboration. Autobots and Decepticons will be introduced as themed ship skins and commanders in a much-anticipated update planned for this September.

Four iconic Transformers characters will be released initially as unique ship skins and commanders with recognizable phrases and voiceovers. Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will set the stage for the Autobots, with Megatron and Rumble to be available as their eternal foes – the Decepticons.
“Generations were raised with the Transformers franchise. Starting from the 1980’s animated series all the way to the latest movies, we instantly fell in love with the robot characters that captivated our imagination. Having the chance to feature them in World of Warships was a dream come true for many of us” said Philip Molodkovets, World of Warships’ Executive Producer. “Our love for big, epic metal warriors is mutual! Therefore we paid special attention to bring Transformers characters to life in details and true scale, side by side with legendary warships.”
“We’re thrilled to bring the Transformers brand to life in World of Warships through this unique collaboration” said Mark Blecher, SVP Corporate Strategy and Business Affairs at Hasbro. “Combining the might of warships and Transformers adds a whole new dimension to combat for fans of both franchises”.
The coming Transformers collaboration with World of Warships will also bring a host of other new content, including special Transformers containers, dedicated in-game tasks and combat missions, expendable camouflages, commemorative flags and patches, and more.

AUSTIN, TX (August 5, 2020) – World of Warships today releases Update 0.9.7 introducing the highly-anticipated German aircraft carriers. The new German CVs are Tier IV Rhein, Tier VI Weser, Tier VIII August von Parseval and Tier X Manfred von Richthofen, and can now be researched by all players.
A new trailer celebrating the launch of the German aircraft carriers can be viewed here.
The German aircraft carriers branch features a series of capital ships that were either planned or partially constructed in the lead-up or during World War II, but never actually deployed. The German planes of these aircraft carriers have low HP pools but feature high speeds. The attack aircraft carry a new type of armor-penetrating rockets that are capable of inflicting heavy damage to enemy citadels with accurate shots. Torpedoes carried by the planes are fast, but short ranged. The dive bombers stationed on these aircraft carriers are armed with armor piercing bombs.
Update 0.9.7 also brings a new expansive in-game Collection called “Germany Navy”. This Collection includes unique collectibles such as emblems, ships, planes, uniforms, and historical personalities that pay homage to the history of German naval forces in the first half of the 20th century. The first elements will drop from new German Navy containers which can be obtained by completing Directives, combat missions and in the Armory. Players who completed the collection will receive the ability to feature a second flag and to use an alternative color scheme for their German ships.
In addition to the German aircraft carriers, three new ships will become available with the release of Update 0.9.7: Tier IX German battleship Pommern, ready to brawl with her torpedoes, effective secondaries and 12 380 mm guns; the Tier VI German carrier Erich Loewenhardt, whose dive bombers carry high-explosive bombs instead of armor piercing; and the Tier X Soviet battleship Slava, well suited for long-range firefights with her accurate guns but rather weak armor.
Update 0.9.7 also brings a new Ranked sprint with a 3vs3 format, playing Tier IX ships, new Unique Upgrades added to the Research Bureau in the Armory, as well as a renewed Hamburg port, and other technical improvements.
