World of Warships: Legends sails onto PS4 and Xbox One in 2019

Sail your ship on by.


World of Warships: Legends is bringing its unique form of naval warfare to consoles, so you can finally jump on the bandwagon with the rest of the players out there who discovered a long time ago that large-scale ship battles with historically accurate warships is actually a lot of fun.

The console version of the popular PC game has been "built with console gamers in mind," according to Victor Kislyi, founder and CEO of Wargaming. “This is far more than a port of the PC version, it’s a whole new game - right down to overhauling the graphics engine - which makes everything bigger and brighter on consoles.”

The game will feature a selection of different changes to its typical gameplay, but its graphics engine has also been revamped significantly to help enhance the game no matter which console you're playing it on. It's projected to bring its 9v9 naval battles to consoles in 2019, though right now there isn't a projected release date beyond that. The normally free-to-play game hasn't announced if it will receive physical releases on consoles or if it will feature any new content exclusive to them, but we'll likely be hearing more about all of that as the months wear on.
