Would be lovely if they one day tied together the 3 games (World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, World of Battleships), and made it possible for tanks to fight planes, or planes fighting battleships... Let's call it:

World of Battlefield :)

@Meurik I think the 3 games will share the same meta-game (map conquest), but nothing direct.

And this is an MMO? how? Just a big FPS it looks like.

MMO is now a buzz word.

@(Unverified) It's -not- a MMO, nor are they're other in-the-works titles (I'll include their current title as I don't consider that at all finished with it's bad match-maker, and other balance issues). Considering the laundry list of work they have listed themselves to do on theri current title the fact that they're charging ahead with not 1 but 2 more is pretty ridiculous. But, yes completely in character for this -extremely- greedy and manipulative company.

Persistent world, character advancement, social interaction. What exactly IS and MMO if this isn't one?

Much as I loved Navy Field, I know Wargaming.net, and that means these battles aren't going to be top-down isometric in true back-in-the-day fashion. It's probably going to be a close-in 3rd-person shooter again, where you drive the ships around. Their experience with World of Tanks will probably mean direct-fire naval combat, as well as just about every big ship having the capability to switch to indirect fire as well. I wonder if submarines will rear their ugly heads? Doubtful..

I just wish a few of the features of Navy Field show up--being able to engineer your own armor distribution and assign weapons was pretty nice.

* War of Ground Soldiers (And every Christmas Eve, you can't fight, but you can go to enemy lines, trade pictures of your family, and have dance-offs with the enemy).

* War of Newspaper boys (Be the first to hawk papers during war time, while rounding up paper for the war-effort paper drive. Be sure to collect all those Action Comic #1's!)

* War of Cooks (Serve up piping hot meals to your troops. No, this is not Diner Dash...really...it's not. You are just confused. ;P ).

More news. Now I'm actually looking forward to it.
Two words: Aircraft Carriers.

@nimzy Well how are the battleships supposed to go up against an aircraft carrier? Those don't belong in the game IMHO.

@Daemodand

They will be HUGE targets that cannot move I am betting. They will not be invulnerable or unstoppable which means its a different tactic that I think will play out well. I think there is definitely a place for them.

For a game (no matter what you want to classify it as) that is free its not bad at all. In the month I have been playing I have progressed nicely and have not spent a dime. I like it better that its not too deep and set in a "world" environment. To me this is a game you play to do something different every now and then. Its not something you devote as much time as a toon you create and grow from head to toe. This is just fast-paced quick battles that you can do without too much time constraints.

I really do not get the "greedy" comment earlier seeing as how they have got nothing from me at all. I will probably end up buying the $20 boxed version just to contribute because for the time I have put into it, its been at least worth $20, not like the $50 I wasted on the Lotro expansion which I will not be playing when it launches.

Awww no U-boats? I was hoping to be under water...you know....without being sunk.

@FrostPaw

U-boats didn't take part in naval battles. They attacked ships (mostly supply or transport ships) from afar and then made a quick getaway.

Considering the three games will share the same experience pool, clan wars map and premium gold, you could consider them to be expansions rather than stand alone.
