Happy Birthday to World of Warships! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year already since Wargaming’s third historic war game was released. In order to celebrate the online game’s first birthday, the guys and girls over at Wargaming have released a nifty infographic that shares some interesting information about the last 12 months of World of Warships. In case you’re not so familiar with the online gaming industry, it has become quite a tradition to release infographics to celebrate game anniversaries.
In the last 365 days, Wargaming has updated World of Warships from version 0.5.0 to 0.5.11. More than 9.5 million players have registered an account during this time with more than 3.4 million captains from China alone. The next most active region is Russia with more than 700,000 users. The rest of the community is made up of European, American, and Asian players respectively. In total this international group of players has battled it out against each other in more than 1.8 billion matches and has sailed more than 56 billion kilometers. That’s like traveling approximately 379 times from the Earth to the sun. There’s lots of other interesting statistics which you can check out by following this link.
The studio continued the celebration by releasing the birthday trailer posted above. Unfortunately, Wargaming failed to release a bonus code for their community, which many publishers tend to do. Instead, players were able to play some bonus missions over the weekend.
