Wargaming is hard at work on the next content update for World of Warships and has submarines and Halloween-themed additions planned for later this month. In a perhaps more unexpected move, players will also be able to hire Washington Capitals winger and Stanley Cup champion Alexander “Ovi” Ovechkin as their captain.
Not only will Ovi appear as four different commanders, one that can serve with the US fleet, one for Soviet vessels and two unique ones, but he will also voice them personally. Two extra special commanders will be dual-nation, a first for World of Warships, meaning players can easily switch between Soviet and US fleets with a single commander. All four come with special perks which enhance the ship’s targeting and survivability.
“I wanted people to understand that in any competitive field, you must inspire players to never give up,” said Ovechkin. “Video games are just like sport – play more, train more. When I started the game for the first time, I realized I am not a very good ship commander…. But, like on the ice, I will continue to play and build my game skills until I am the best!”
Several new patches, a commemorative collection, and special camouflage will also be included in this content update. Of course, you’ll also find a plethora of new, non-NHL related, content, including submarines and Halloween-themed additions.
