Players of the battle sim World of Warships will get reinforcements this month, as characters from the Transformers franchise join the fray.
World of Warships is an advanced battle simulation game that lets players take the helm of highly detailed, realistic warships from the past. Produced by Wargaming, which also publishes World of Tanks and World of Warplanes, among others, the game is the world’s most popular naval simulation.
Wargaming has partnered with Transformers in past collaborations, and this year the characters are making a triumphant return, bringing a full range of content to WoW Legends, which is the version of the game designed for consoles.
The new range of content includes six special skins for Legends anniversary update campaign ship Tier VIII République and five other Legendary ships.
Inspired by some of the acclaimed Autobot heroes and devious Decepticon villains, some of the Transformer’s most iconic characters are represented, with skins themed around Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Hot Rod, Grimlock, Megatron and Rumble.
These skins, Transformers’ Commanders and much more will be available through the game’s revamped Cybertronian Container in the WoW Legends Store.
The partnership with brand owner Hasbro will also see the characters directly involved in the battle, as the “robots in disguise” are seen on the decks of the ships, and take a direct part in the battle, as seen in the above video.
