It has been a long time coming, but Wargaming’s free online naval vessel game World of Warships is introducing submarines!
According to a post on the World of Warships Development Blog, submarines will be play-tested in the next few weeks. Players that have signed up for the SuperTest will have access to the new subs for play and review. After testing has completed, Wargaming will release the new vessels on a special server as a separate battle only option before introducing the submarines into the game for all players.
This isn’t the first time that World of Warships has introduced submarines. During the 2018 Halloween event, players got their first shot at piloting a submarine in the “Terror of the Deep” operation. The special submarine was adorned with cogs and filigree, creating a Steampunk vibe that added to the Halloween season. This time, Wargaming will continue its’ historical accuracy with four subs, two from the US Navy and two from the German Kriegsmarine.

Back in 2018 many of you have participated in the operation called ‘Terror of the Deep’. This event allowed everyone to try a new class in our game — submarines. By the end of the event, it became clear that our players are highly interested in submarines and we should be engaged in full development.
And now, we are happy to announce that the first stages of closed testing will begin shortly, where the new gameplay of submarines will be tested. The American and German submarines will be the pioneers of the new class.
After the SuperTest submarines will be available for players to try on a special server, before being added to the main game client. Once introduced, the new class will initially be available in a special separate battle type only and this final configuration stage will last for several months. This will allow us to make additional changes to the new class under the conditions of the live server.
More information regarding the specific submarines and their battle features will be announced at Gamescon 2019, hopefully including a release date. Until then, it looks like the WoWs Development team is going to take every opportunity to have fun with the new vessels.
