World of Warships – Wargaming, Fun and Fast-paced Gameplay
World of Warships Legends has the same fun, fast-paced gameplay we are accustomed to getting from the ‘World of’ franchise. Instead of just porting over an exact copy of the PC version, Wargaming has built a new version just for consoles. They have streamlined many of the game systems and have reduced the overall number of ships available compared to other platforms, but they have created a good base for consoles, and I would expect Wargaming to expand the game as time goes on. As expected for a Wargaming product, the cash shop is heavy-handed, but a player is still able to access top tier ships with a little effort.
You can’t deny that developer and publisher Wargaming has seen a lot of success with their ‘World of’ franchise, starting with World of Tanks in 2010, followed by air and sea battles in World of Warplanes and World of Warships (see the pattern here?) in the years after. They have even made the leap from PC over to consoles and mobile with the World of franchise. Their latest campaign has them adding to their console offerings with World of Warships: Legends, available on both PS4 and XBox One. While their first foray into console gaming, World of Tanks: Mercenaries, mixed things up with an alternate reality, WoWS Legends stick to a more historical path. This doesn’t mean we are getting a port of the PC version though. Read on to see what has stayed the same and what has changed.
The gameplay is exactly what you would expect from a Wargaming title. You pick from one of three classes of ships – Destroyer (light), Cruiser (medium), or Battleship (heavy), and then head out into the seas to hunt the enemy. Battles are 9v9 matches, with players paired up against others with similar tier ships. The matchmaking system does a good job of balancing out the classes on each side, and battles generally start up in less than 60 seconds. Battles have a 15-minute time limit, but a well-placed salvo from a battleship or a couple of torpedos from a pesky destroyer can end your match before it really gets started. Fortunately, just like other games in the franchise, you are able to queue up a different ship and jump into another battle right away. This ensures the matches are fast, and even if you only have 30-45 minutes to play you will still be able to get several matches in.
