Air-Force MMO-action is now available to all players

2 July 2013 - Wargaming, a leading developer and publisher of online games, is pleased to announce the launch of an open beta test of the military air MMO action game World of Warplanes. During the closed beta test, World of Warplanes collected more than 2,7 million applications from 194 countries. Starting today, the game is available to everyone.

The OBT version of World of Warplanes already includes a system for pumping and crew skills, different types of weapons and consumables, and real-time hints that will help players choose the best tactics. For beginners, an in-game training mode is available to help familiarize themselves with the basics of air combat. At the moment, the game presents aircraft manufactured in Germany, the USSR, the United States and Japan.

At one of the last stages of testing World of Warplanes, a single premium account will be officially introduced, available in any project of the company.

With the release of the game in release, all participants in the closed beta test will receive special prizes from the World of Warplanes team.

“We are grateful to all the players of World of Warplanes who have been with us since the very beginning of the project,” said Victor Kisly, the head of Wargaming. “The game has taken a huge step forward, and now, with access to the open beta test, everyone will be able to appreciate the result of our work.”

You can join the World of Warplanes beta test on the official game website:

      This is another shooter for nerds. I have a friend in the tanks of the year 2-3 is cut day and night. There is not even time to go to an interview for a higher paying job. And he is over 40. I got tired of these tanks after 2 months.
      And airplanes are so-so neither take-off nor landing, VAF is unlikely to like it. The son signed for closed beta testing.

              I’m not completely dumb, I have an idea about the physics of flight and all that, it’s just kind of strange, like you turn the plane, but it turns somehow somehow, and you stop turning it, it generally returns to the initial course. I'm not comparing with arcade toys, but with Flight Simulator, it seems like a simulation there? or how. None of the games had this, f22 raptor, lightning 2, 3 everywhere seems to be controlled normally, but here it’s somehow strange.

      And the theme of no less than tanks aroused interest in the history of armored vehicles and the Second World War. But in general I agree! I’m watching friends who scream to me screaming that the computer is evil - now zombies themselves have become. Take out a loan of 50 pieces and so on.

    I tried both here and there. War Thunder - it will be more dynamic, planes faster and bends steeper. And in the second aircraft, like pregnant hippos, you fix a sharp maneuver until you deploy it there, you can’t even sell a barrel. Dy and modelki look a little childish. Played an hour and deleted.

    Yeah, it’s better instead of mastering the technology and studying history at the same time, they are cutting into Korean online RPGs, because severe orcs and busty elves are not a dastard.
    play LockOn and DCS, this is really the norm
    Imagine a medium-static player of tanks for a tru-sim like Ka-52, where for simple take-off you need to do 30-40 operations laughing
    Airplanes from gayvirming this is just what you need for the bulk of people playing, simple and clear.

    I played in tanks for about 2 years, got tired, became boring, and besides, you only move in 2 planes, although you have introduced new physics, but it hasn’t become much more interesting. But airplanes still fly in 3 planes. In the World of Planes in closed V-te played, but somehow dull, without realism. But War Thunder will be more qualitative. Although everything is an amateur, to each his own - suum cuique (jedem das seine) smile

    Hello everyone! They are muddied, muddied, it’s not as if I don’t mind, everyone has the right to play or not, I'll just throw a free idea. lol next game "Sea battle - online" on the first level you sail on a schooner or even a raft full of holes bully reached the limit level he took a frigate, a cruiser, but if the game is with modern ships, then down to the aircraft carrier (then you have to combine the game with World of Warplanes or other flight simulators wassat )

    I tried both War Thunder and the WoWP CBT. In terms of playing qualities, the first is better in all respects. But ... Before the already legendary "IL-2. Sturmovik", both are like cancer before China. Unfortunately, the IL-2 could not be thrust into its seven.
    From modern flight simulators I like "Lock On: Flaming Cliffs" more - but I have to be content with GS-2. The first one does not go under the seven in any way. Of the helicopters, the DCS Ka-50 is good (even pilots were trained on it at the Air Force Academy). For alligator lovers, I recommend "Enemy Engaged 2: Ka-52 vs. Comanche". Maximum under Vista. And yes, Indian can be tasted too

        I fanned out and tried to put it in compatibility mode with other OSs, but protection required a release version. With IL-2 it was immediately sent, for the 32 bit game my 64-bit seven refused to accept

          I want to express my opinion. I completely agree with "IL-2 Sturmovik" and "Flaming Cliffs", "Battle of Britain" are very good arcade "sims", "Ka-50", in my opinion, is closer (well, by a little step) to training and aerobatic simulators and is of interest to fans of "offline" because the Ka-50 has no "flyable" rivals. And so, the moment comes when the skill of the "flyer" player reaches a certain level, "bots" as rivals no longer suit him and he refers to the "online version" of his toy (one of the 3 I mentioned earlier). Here comes the main disadvantage of these games that overlaps all the advantages (graphics, engines, general level of realism). I mean "Cheaters". using Cheats-downloaded programs that complexly change the root files of the game, in order to have certain advantages over other "Flyers" (non-defeat, no spin, unlimited missile launch zone and their range) and much more. I'll try to explain the perniciousnessThis phenomenon. As an example, I will describe the situation with the "IL-2 Sturmovik" where "flyer" for several years. And so the goal of any arcade sim is to replenish their own account, as a result of receiving awards, titles - "statistics". For online beginners, "young" I will say that the experience gained earlier will be useful for piloting, tactics will have to be learned anew, since the aircraft controlled by "bots" have a slightly different software model of flight characteristics than "craft" aircraft controlled by flyers. To get good statistics, flyers were combined into " pairs "and then in squadrons (sometimes regiments) -" squads ". Group battles were carried out, in squads there were people who were responsible for painting crafts, others for tactics (training young people), and others for" radio communication "(TC). there was a circle of like-minded people united by one task (I must note that no one went crazy, he did not sit on the Internet for days.) every day from 19 to 23, but really, on weekends from 16 to 01-test battles. In my squad there were flyers from all over the Union from Czechoslovakia, two, amers came in that we are to them. Communication, far from being limited to the framework of a squad, we can safely talk about a certain social phenomenon - a "community" uniting people around the world, both aviation enthusiasts and those for whom it is a part of life. Depending on the server conditions ( sometimes the "Japanese" flew with the stars), "castes" stood out in the community - "messovody", "Jacobians", "cobras
          achie ", about the" beavers "I am silent, they have their own hierarchy there WAS. All this came to naught, by the year 2008. Because of the cheaters, they do not need a group battle (he has every shell either in the pilot, or rudder failure) and against him, he is also not effective (he is not vulnerable, cheat - "armored diapers"). Couples began to spread out - there was no point in them, the game went like a loner, personal skill ceased to mean anything at all, people began to leave " Stormtrooper ", the young, having flown off another time, did not want to mess with control, tactics, because they did not see the point. The servers were empty for some time, then they began to close, communication stopped. For me personally, it became a loss comparable to the deprivation of a personal auto-world All this I mean is that in sims of the new generation, online, such as War Thuder, WoWP, access to generating files is limited, moreover, they are updated often, so I hope there will be no cheating. It is hoped that the community will be revived. Well, wait and see?
