The ever-growing ship roster is set to get a whole new ship branch! The French navy destroyers are making their speedy way into early access. These are some of the most fast-paced destroyers in the game–defined by their unique lack of Smoke Generator consumables. However, they make up for this in spades thanks to their cruiser-like firepower, blistering speed, and, at higher tiers, Main-Battery Reload Booster consumables. Pile on some decent torpedoes and daring captains will have some very formidable destroyers coming to the seas.

Bringing in all the powers of a Norse god, the new "Valhalla Rising" campaign features the Tier VII Premium German battleship Odin. This ship is a powerful surface raider-style battleship, armed with punchy 12-inch (305 mm) guns and equipped with torpedoes in a similar manner to the Tier VI battleship Scharnhorst. This campaign has 100 levels and 5 weeks of missions, plenty to battle through but perfect for this thunderous warship.

After a hiatus, Ranked Battles are back in World Of Warships: Legends! After changes to reward calculations last update, these 7 vs 7 battles will be even more interesting. For the first two weeks of the update, players will battle it out in Tier V ships to reach the top ranks, with plenty of rewards along the way. After a week break, the second sprint will begin featuring Tier VI ships and even more rewards for the captains who reach the top.
