Update notes are subject to change.
Update 0.6.5 marks our first historic campaign. Take part in the most iconic North Atlantic naval operation and decorate your ships with special camouflage that changes the exterior visual look of the ship, including its textures and geometry.
You can play this new campaign if you have a service record level of 8 or higher, beginning May 18 and ending June 7, when the next update is set to release.
The campaign is based on the historic chase of May 1941, with seven missions containing eight tasks each. Take part in operation Rheinübung, avenge the destruction of British battlecruiser HMS Hood, and take ships of different classes into battle against German raiders, attack enemies with torpedo bombers and more!
If you want to get a more in-depth look at the hunt, we've added detailed historical notes to the campaign.
For each task you complete you'll get a special Container available only during the campaign, which may contain collection items, special Signal Flags and exclusive camo. If you complete the entire campaign, you'll be rewarded with the legendary Bismarck and a Port slot. If you already have Bismarck in your Port, you'll get 11,000,000 Credits and another Port slot.
Look for the new "Collections" feature -- earn unique collectibles, fill your album and build a complete collection to earn a reward!
You can find collection items in the special Containers, and all of them have an equal chance to appear. We'll add an album for each collection to your account after you earn the first item from a collection, but the button to see the album only becomes visible in your tab after you get your first item. Collection items cannot be sold, so if you get an item already in your collection, it's considered a "duplicate."
You can exchange a certain number of duplicates for missing collection items. Simply select an item you don't have instead of duplicates and exchange it at a rate of four duplicates to a single unique item for the "Hunt for Bismarck" campaign.
After a collection is complete, the remaining duplicates automatically convert into Credits (1 duplicate - 10,000 Credits).
You can try to complete the "Hunt for Bismarck" collection until the end of the campaign. After, the collection will remain accessible to players who received at least one item in the collection.
"Hunt for Bismarck" is our first collection of badges with participants in the World War II operation to pursue the German raider ship. The first collection has 24 elements appearing (in equal probability) in special Containers, which help build the entire collection. Completing the entire "Hunt for Bismarck" collection nets valuable Bismarck camos: "From the Bottom of the Ocean" and "The Last Cruise."
We've added a mission carousel to the campaigns window to ease transition between tasks.
Now, you'll see new campaigns first and they'll be marked with a special sign
After the final task is completed, a window appears saying that the campaign is finished:
A new camo provides the same effects as regular camo, but changes a ship's exterior and alters its shape.
If you'd prefer not to see this camo in battle, you can hide it in your Port settings.
We've improved the exteriors of the following tier IX ships:
Montana, North Carolina: Fixed geometry and textures of main guns -- this won't affect combat performance
American cruisers: Fixed the textures of underwater hull
Henri IV, T22: Added radar rotation animation
Bougainville: Fixed funnel geometry
Bogatyr: Fixed numerical waterline marks
Yamato: Aircraft catapults now placed symmetrically
Ognevoi: Fixed camera crossing ropes
Kagero: Fixed bug with national flag obstructing camera view
T-22: Fixed camera crossing gun barrel
Missouri, Montana, Iowa: Barrel jacket color corrected from light to dark for higher historical accuracy
Dragon Signal Flag: New price of 60 Doubloons instead of 50 -- only affects cost of selling flag from Inventory
Warspite: Main caliber turret turn time decreased from 72s to 54.5s
Campaign Camo: The expendable "Hunter" camouflage will be available for all ships. You can earn it on the "Hunt for Bismarck" campaign and offers the following benefits:
"From the Bottom of the Ocean" camouflage and "The Last Conquest" camouflage for Bismarck and Hood added. Earn them by completing the "Hunt for Bismarck" campaign and from completing the collection! They offer the following benefits:
