Victor Kislyi, CEO of developer Wargaming explains:
The release of World of Warplanes marks a great moment for Wargaming, and we are extremely excited to offer players the next great chapter in our gaming universe. Just as we did for World of Tanks, we’ll continue to grow and evolve World of Warplanes with new content, nations, aircraft and game modes to keep our players fully engaged and always eager to take to the skies.
If you’d like to join the (more than) 4.5 million players who have tested the game and helped to shape it into what it is today – the “premier free-to-play aviation combat game” – it’s a simple process. World of Warplanes is now part of the Wargaming.net universe, as well as featuring in the Unified Premium Account system. This means, if you fork over real-world money for one game, you’ll get the benefits in the other – a system that’s planned to expand with the upcoming release of World of Warships.
