New year, new gear — World of Warships adds to the fleet with new aircraft carriers

You can’t start off the year quietly, and World of Warships is making sure its players have something new to tinker with. New U.S. aircraft carriers are entering this navy via Early Access, and the new 2024 update has more than that in tow. New collaborative content and new takes on classic modes are just some of what you can enjoy. Check out all of the details below.

AUSTIN, TX (January 8, 2024) – Wargaming, the publisher and developer of the leading naval battle MMO World of Warships, is kicking off the New Year with a new line of U.S. Aircraft Carriers in Early Access. The game’s first update of 2024 also sees the continued construction of Italian cruiser Michelangelo in the Dockyard, a new take on Bounty Hunt, the return of popular hololive production collaboration content, as well as a return of Ranked Battles and Brawls.

U.S. Aircraft Carriers Land in Early Access

Kicking off Update 13.0 is a new line of U.S. Aircraft Carriers in Early Access, adding three new ships: Tier VI Independence, Tier VIII Yorktown, and Tier X Essex. This range of ships play differently as they are limited to one standard squadron, the torpedo bombers supplemented with two tactical squadrons consisting of attack and dive bomber aircraft. Starting at Tier VIII, the tactical squadrons are equipped with the new Smoke Curtain Generator consumable, allowing them to bring a new tactical depth in battle.

To mark this new line, a special U.S. Aircraft Carriers event will take place. Progressing through 20 levels of daily and weekly missions, players can unlock an array of rewards including commemorative flags, camouflages, and Containers. But it doesn’t end there, as players will have the option to unlock an additional progression line packed with 20 more levels.

Bounty Hunt, Brawls and Battles galore!

The latest iteration of the Bounty Hunt event is set to return to the game on February 1. Packed with plenty of rewards, four new achievements, major changes, and access to the Star Emissaries collection, this version is not to be missed! Available via random bundles, players can unlock a number of bonuses and Star Emissaries content including two different ships, STAR Kitakaze and STAR Edinburgh, and two Commanders each equipped with 10 skill points.

Update 13.0 welcomes Season 15 and the return of Ranked Battles on January 10, and three new Brawls beginning January 15. As always, Brawls will see varying rule sets to challenge the most daring of teams in their pursuit of naval dominance!

For those looking to complete something a bit less combative and a bit more constructive, the building continues at the Sestri Ponente Dockyard, rewarding dedicated players with Tier IX Italian cruiser Michelangelo.

Hololive production returns to World of Warships

As part of Update 13.0, World of Warships welcomes back hololive production to the game with a resale of top content! Popular VTubers such as Shishiro Botan, Moona Hoshinova, Takanashi Kiara, Watson Amelia, and more will once again be available as Commanders, ready to lead fleets to victory. Running for two weeks beginning February 2, 2024, the resale will also include consumable skins, flags, and a camo bundle for hololive production fans to enjoy.
