FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

London, UK, Paris, FR and San Francisco, CA (20 th January, 2011) — Wargaming.net, the award-winning videogame publisher and developer, is proud to introduce the initial tech tree of the German aircraft for its anticipated flight combat action MMO World of Warplanes. Players will have 19 warplanes to explore from two lines of light and heavy fighters.

The first iteration of the German tech tree will be available upon the game's release scheduled for 2012. World of Waplanes will expand its fleet of German warbirds to more than 90 models.

"German engineers were never afraid of innovative design in their aircraft," said World of Warplanes producer Anton Sitnikov. "They embodied their ideas into impressive mass-production models and astonishing prototypes, and we are proud to include them into World of Warplanes."

German warplanes are famous for their fast altitude climbs and power dive attacks. Players will be able to control such famous Luftwaffe machines as the Bf. 109G, one of the most dangerous opponents of the allied forces, and the Me. 262, the first jet fighter interceptor used during WWII.

About World of Warplanes

World of Warplanes is the flight combat MMO action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. The game continues the armored warfare theme marked in the highly-acclaimed World of Tanks and will throw players into a never-ending tussle for air dominance.

World of Warplanes will allow players to build full-scale careers as virtual pilots offering machines from several key eras, from1930's biplanes to the Korean War jet fighters that led the way to modern air forces.

World of Warplanes will feature a wide range of warbirds, each of them unique in their effectiveness and behavior. Virtual pilots will choose from three main warplane classes - single-engine light fighters capable of engaging enemies in close dogfights, heavy fighters with their deadly straight attacks, and strafing aircrafts, the fearsome threat to ground targets.

Every plane will feature multiple variations of ammo types, engines, and other crucial modules, and their various combinations will allow players to pick the optimal configuration for the most effective behavior in combat.
