Naval multiplayer free-to-play game World of Warships is setting out to sea with a brand new range of Tier V-X Pan-Asian cruisers this update includes a Malaysia Warship, the Rahmat! These will come with the January 19th update.
On top of this, rentals of superships are being made available for Random Battles, Asymmetric Battles make a grand return, and the Armory has been freshly fitted out with some powerful new additions.
Malaysian Battleship Rahmat
The highlight of the World of Warships update is the Malaysian Battle Ship Rahmat. It is a pan Asian Tier VI cruiser that specializes in protecting squadrons or convoys from attack by destroyers or aircraft.
The ship is based on a hypothetical Dido class battleship transferred to the Malaysian navy from Britain during World War II. The ship does however share a name with the real-life Malaysian battleship the KD Rahmat. It is an interesting idea and cool to see Malaysia represented more in video games.
In the first new event of the year, players can take the helm of six Pan-Asian cruisers for the very first time – vessels known for their small-caliber but quick-firing guns and mighty deepwater torpedoes. These include the Tier V Chungking of the Republic of China and Tier VI Rahmat from Malaysia, all the way up to the Tier X Jinan from the People’s Republic of China.
28 fresh combat missions will be made available in four batches week by week, which on completion come littered with a bevy of rewards, such as access to the Tier V Chungking and Tier VII Chumphon as well as Pan-Asian tokens. This new temporary resource can be redeemed for a swathe of camouflages, patches, and sequentially available bundles for the Tier VI Rahmat and Tier VIII Harbin as well as the Tier IX Sejong and their special skins. The Dragon Port has also been updated in honor of the event!
Following the theme of the Pan-Asian cruisers, players will also be able to celebrate the Lunar New Year by participating in combat missions to earn a themed flag, special containers, and other items.
Earn Portal Tokens through socials
Update 0.11.0 also encourages players to earn Portal Tokens to secure the Japanese Castle skin for Fuso, exclusive to World of Warships’ fans on Twitch and Discord, as well as active Recruiters.
From January 19th and throughout the update, Portal Tokens can be gathered through missions revealed via weekly Twitch drops, regular Discord activities. Players can exchange the resource for either the skin itself or unlock a mission marathon with the skin as the final reward.
Supership-sized changes to Random Battles and the grand return of Asymmetric Battles
After extensive sea trials in Ranked and Co-op Battles, Superships are now ready for an extensive new phase of testing in Random Battles, bringing this popular new addition to being a permanent fixture in World of Warships.
Asymmetric Battles are also back. The battle type with different numbers of ships on each side has undergone a few changes, which now contains 6-8 Tier IX and X ships on one side and 9-12 Tier VII and VIII ships on the other.
Additions to the Armory
The battlecruiser project Incomparable will be made available in the Armory for Steel, packed with a wide variety of consumables. Thanks to its 508-mm main guns and two four-pipe torpedo tubes, this ship is not only speedy but powerful too.
World of Warships and its latest update are available on PC. The new update will be released on the 19th of January. Happy sailing!
