The community wanted submarines since day one, but it was very difficult to find the right design to implement them. Seems Wargaming has found a way that could bring these stealthy war machines to the game soon.
Halloween has become a testbed for new mechanics and new game features and this year we will get to test submarines. A new dimension will be added t the game: depth. Players will be able to freely manoeuvre between surface, submerged and even use the periscope. Each stance will have a different concealment impact on the submarine, speed and its ability to attack!
A second and third new game mechanisms will also be introduced to the game: Oxygen levels and Depth Charges. These will bring realism to the battle and bring a sense of balance to these stealthy machines. We don’t want that one player who never surfaces and just torpedoes every single enemy ship, right?
Submarines will only have weapons in their torpedo tubes where each can be launched individually and even have a mix of torpedoes in a single submarine. All these new game mechanics will be tested during the Halloween 2018 event, starting in October as it would be expected. But that’s not all, as, with every event in-game, players will also have the opportunity to use a brand new in-game port and Halloween 2018 isn’t an exception.
