Lionsgate has partnered up with Wargaming, the developers of World Of Warships, to help promote their new movie released this past week, Midway. The promotion makes total sense since the company has incorporated that very battle into their game, along with all the ships involved. At several movie premieres around the country, including the USO screenings on military bases, attendees received invites to make a new World Of Warships account with the code "MIDWAYMOVIE" and got cool in-game items. You can read more about the partnership below.
- Wargaming created special battle missions to commemorate the Battle of Midway and the movie release, by completing certain tasks within the game, players will be able to try out IJN Kaga and IJN Saipan. The battle missions will run until December 5th.
- More than 30 historical ships that took part in Midway operations are recreated within World of Warships.
- All ships are carefully developed based on historical documents and blueprints that were acquired from archives and naval museums.
- World of Warships has more than 300 historical ships representing 11 different nations or geographical areas.
