World of Warships Release Date Remains a Mystery

Wargaming's next big free-to-play online phenomenon is getting ready to hit the waves.

Update: Wargaming's representatives have been in touch to let Grab It Magazine know that World of Warships still does not have a final release date and that final testing remains in progress. It would appear that the event in early September is - at this stage at least - an opportunity for media to get more access to the title. We'll keep you updated on any date news, and also bring you a live feed from the party via our twitter account.   

Original Story: Wargaming is best known for World of Tanks, the incredible free-to-play tank warfare game that took the world by storm, gathering an army of over 100 million users in the process. World of Warplanes followed, and now the trilogy is set to be complete, with World of Warships locking in a launch date. Having existed in closed alpha testing since late 2013, the game moved into open beta in mid-2015 and is now ready to sail. We just received an invite to a "launch party" in Sydney, Australia, which is set for early September.

Fans of Wargaming and the previous titles should definitely pick up a copy of Episode 5 of our digital iPad magazine.
