    • Grimlock with the “King of Primitives” skin for French battleship Richelieu
      This scary-looking Dinobot is all about improving your Battleship’s secondary caliber guns (and eating enemies, of course).
    • Hot Rod with the “Hot Racer” skin for British cruiser Edinburgh
      Improve Radar, make spotting you from planes more difficult, hunt aircraft. Easy!
    • Soundwave with the “Superior” skin for Italian cruiser Amalfi
      Better maneuverability and better smoke screens, great choice for Italian cruisers.
    • Starscream with the “Lord of the Seekers” skin for German aircraft carrier August Von Parseval
      Faster aircraft with bigger health pool, what’s more you can ask for a carrier Commander?

    Check the store to learn more about this offer and don’t miss a blog post with detailed breakdown of the Transformers collaboration tomorrow.

    Please note: you’ll be able to acquire any of the Transformers content from the previous collaboration (including Megatron, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Rumble) starting first week of the update, August 30, while the new reinforcements of Grimlock, Hot Rod, Soundwave and Starscream will arrive on week two, from September 6.

    Alternative Soviet destroyers in Early Access

    Next come even better news, comrades. Three fresh-off- the-dock dangerous Soviet destroyers: Soobrazitelny (Russian for Sharp) at Tier IV, Boevoi (Russian for Pugnacious) at Tier V and Kiev at Tier VI wait for you in Early Access as an alternate branch. You can receive these warships with unique personal missions, one per ship, while opening dedicated Soviet destroyer crates and Big crates (with a better chance to get an Early Access DD). If luck is not your signature trait, worry not – those warships will become researchable as soon as the next update with Udaloi capping off the branch at Tier VII.

      Stalingrad is the first non-Bureau Legendary ship, we’re making her available with a permanent camouflage from the get-go. When it involves what this ship is, consider an enormous cruiser with 12-inch (305 mm) guns, offering a superb performance with AP shells, a serious HP pool and quite a little bit of speed, and a choice between Defensive AA fire and Radar else. Please note, also, that Stalingrad isn’t a Premium ship, but simply a ship of Legendary tier, so changes to her performance are considered possible and even likely, please consider that before making a sale.
