World of Warships – Battle royale mode in a new post-apocalyptic world goes live

[Play free now] Developer and publisher Wargaming just released a new post-apocalyptic Battle Royale mode for their popular naval combat game World of Warships. Rogue Wave, a temporary battle mode set in a dark and toxic sea world is coming as part of the new 0.8.5 Update, which also introduces two new seasons of Ranked Sprint and few mechanical and cosmetic changes. In Rogue Wave, World of Warships’ new temporary Battle Royale mode, players will face off in 4 teams of 3 over resources in the flooded ruins of a sunken city, adding the ability for more than two teams to battle for the first time to World of Warships.

Players start with no consumable items and have to navigate a collapsing world with just their ship and her armaments to defend themselves from other players. Other players aren’t the only threat, as throughout the match a wall of Wild Fire will steadily engulf the battlefield, pushing players closer together, lest they get caught and quickly lose HP.

Rogue Wave features 3 new ship classes specifically designed for the mode:

The Octopus gathers ships armed with powerful torpedoes and low detectability, though featuring automated main batteries.

The Moray Eel is comprised of highly maneuverable ships, designed for aggressive close quarter brawls.

The Barracuda class are formidable vessels focusing on speed and powerful main battery guns.
