You can complete the missions in both Versus AI mode and Standard Battles. 

    We're also introducing a new historical Dutch Commander, Karel Doorman. He'll join your ranks automatically as soon as you receive the final reward of this campaign—De Zeven Provinciën.

    D-Day: 80th Anniversary 


    To commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Normandy landings, also known as D-Day, we've prepared plenty of themed new content. Complete dedicated missions starting from May 27 to earn collectible D-Day cards, which provide compelling information about D-Day warships, the Normandy landings, and military decorations. Collect all these cards to receive the final prize—French Tier III battleship Courbet 1944 with a special D-Day permanent camouflage that includes a counter for enemy ships sunk!


    Moreover, several heroic ships that participated in the Normandy landings will await you in the Store during this event. These include new Commonwealth Tier VII destroyer Haida in her thematic permanent camouflage with a counter for defeated ships, along with Texas, Warspite, Belfast, Błyskawica, and Arkansas. These ships will be available in special bundles that also grant access to unique missions. Additionally, don't miss a dedicated mission for Nevada that will bring you a D-Day permanent camouflage for her, also featuring a counter for enemy defeats.


    Stay tuned for an upcoming dedicated article to learn more about the event's missions and rewards. 

    Aircraft Carriers Revised 

    In this June update, we've refined aircraft carriers to make them better suited for any type of battle. This includes air spotting changes, an enlarged hangar with reduced restoration time for planes, new plane fuel mechanics, an increased number of bombs dropped (though with reduced damage per hit), and more tweaks. Additionally, starting from this update, plane costs have been reduced to zero, and there are slight changes to their economic balance. Read our traditional Ministry of Balance article to explore the complete list of changes.

    To try out the new mechanics on top-notch vessels, you can rent aircraft carriers Hakuryū*, Midway*, Zuihō, and Graf Zeppelin in the Store for credits during this update. They'll be yours to play for 14 days; after that, they’ll disappear from your list of ships and will no longer be available to rent (if you purchased any of these aircraft carriers before May 27, they will remain available to you as usual). Please note that we're removing all aircraft carriers from sale for the duration of this update. Before returning them to the Store in upcoming versions, we may make a few adjustments based on how well the balance changes perform and, of course, your feedback.

    * We have temporarily removed the option to rent Hakuryū and Midway due to technical reasons.

    Goleador Championship Event 


    Let's celebrate the most exciting days of European football together! Score goals during the Goleador Championship—our new web event starting June 10—to receive rewards: patches representing 24 European soccer teams, soccer-inspired consumable camouflages, a new sporty permanent camouflage for Fiji, and more! Soon, we'll release an article where you can find a link to the Goleador Championship and check out all the rules.

    Warhammer 40,000 Collab 


    The Warhammer 40,000 x Legends collaboration is back in the Store! Explore warring factions of the far future, and power up your forces with inspired Commanders, ships, crates, and more in-game items available in the Store from May 27 through July 1. 

    We've also implemented several balance changes to themed ships and Commanders:

    • Buffs for Ragnarok
    • Buffs for Ignis Purgatio
    • Buff for Commander Arthas The Cold's base trait
    • Buffs for Commander Justinian Lyons XIII's base trait and unique skill

    You'll find more details in the upcoming Ministry of Balance article.

    Transformers Go Legendary 


    Transformers content is available in the Store again! Choose to fight for Autobots or the Decepticons by equipping yourself with thematic in-game items: Commanders, ship skins, crates, and flags. The thematic content will be available in the Store from June 3 through July 1. 

    New Brawl Seasons 

    Two new Brawl seasons await you in this update. During Season 19, you'll be playing Tier VI battleships with increased movement speed, significantly buffed main batteries, and nerfed shell dispersion and grouping. Season 20 features battles with Tier V cruisers that have boosted main stats, including damage from main gun shells and movement speed. 

    Fleet Battles Return 

    Fleet Battles are finally back! We are re-running the test season, but this time, it's all Tier VI ships, and Divisions can now be led into battle by members with the Officer role. Compete against other Fleets in 5-player Divisions; enjoy the team spirit; and earn rewards such as the unique Fleet Trailblazer flag, Steel, and more! Fleet Battles are available for console players every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday during this update.
