A global open beta for World of Warships has launched, allowing those who didn’t participate in March’s closed beta a chance to blow up a bunch of battleships.

The Closed Beta concluded with over 410,000 participants spending approximately two hours a day in-game.

Starting today, participants in the open beta can try out 80 warships from America and Japan, sale around and try to survive in PvE, or try out ten original maps full of lovely 12v12 matches.

Today also marks the inclusion of Soviet and UK nations with vessels from each joining the fleet, along with the introduction of a signal flag customization system.

Wargaming stated all purchased pre-order packages will be credited to players, and closed beta testers who used their bundles during the previous testing phase will be credited once again.

More information on the World of Warships open beta can be found through official websites for the following regions: North America, Europe, Asia.
