The 'Invasion' has begun.
As the Allies and Axis forces prepare to clash in the new World of Warplanes event, Operation Westwall, a new game mode will also become available. An alternative to the ‘Conquest’ mode introduced with Update 2.0, ‘Invasion’ will be playable during certain weekends in March and April, with awesome and valuable prizes available for players who brave the associated missions!
New Game Mode: Invasion
At the beginning of an ‘Invasion’ match, one team will initially own all sectors of the map, and will be tasked with defending them. Meanwhile, it’s up to the opposing team to attack and capture these sectors within the allocated timeframe. Each battle lasts for four minutes only, but if the attacking team manages to capture a sector, they will score a bonus two minutes to add to their timer with every capture.
The battle ends if the attacking team manages to capture all sectors before the timer runs out. Alternatively, the defending team will win if they have successfully repelled the invasion and defended at least one sector when time is up. Both teams have a limited number of respawns, and the battle will also end if all the aircraft on a single team have been destroyed.
The attacking teams can use all aircraft types, while Fighters, Heavy Fighters, and Multirole Fighters are the only aircraft types that can be used by defending teams.
When Can You Play?
The ‘Invasion’ mode will only be available across the following three weekends in March and April:
- Invasion: March 2 at 10:00 PT (13:00 ET) – March 4 at 18:00 PT (21:00 ET)
