World of Warplanes Website Blasts Off

London, UK, Paris, FR and San Francisco, CA (8 th August, 2011) — Wargaming.net announces the launch of the website for the recently revealed flight combat action MMO World of Warplanes. Set in the Golden Age of military aviation, World of Warplanes 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.

The website available at www.worldofwarplanes.com will feature the first in-game screenshots and will further introduce world of warplanes with renders, videos, and other materials to keep players in touch with the latest development updates. 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 for ground targets.

The World of Warplanes website will be updated with a fully-featured community section once the game enters the first stages of testing.

“We are thrilled with the launch of a website for World of Warplanes,” said Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi. “We'll be gradually expanding and developing the website along with the growth of the game and its community.”
