Ready to Get Airborne?

The big day has arrived! After months of excitement, we are pleased to announce that World of Warplanes will be released November 13!

The game features 5 nations (USA, USSR, Germany, Great Britain and Japan) and over 100 different warplanes, with many more to come in future updates. Fly iconic aircraft such as the Supermarine Spitfire and the Messerschmitt Bf. 109 across a wide variety of landscapes.


The release of World of Warplanes also marks the introduction of the Unified Premium Account. This means that if you purchase Premium account time in World of Warplanes, it will also be valid in World of Tanks, and vice versa.

We are celebrating the release with a special contest. Can you be the First to the Top? Race up to tier X and you could win some amazing prizes, including a whole ten years of Premium account time!

Are you taking part in the Open Beta Test? Don’t forget that everything will be wiped in preparation for the game release on November 13th. Some bonuses will be carried over, such as victory marks and the exclusive aircraft from the Open Beta. Find out exactly how the wipe will work and what will carry over in our guide.
