Transformers: Robots in Disguise? More like Transformers: Warships in Disguise!
Announced by the developer and publisher Wargaming, the iconic robot-based franchise is joining forces with World of Warships to bring these iconic characters to the game. Best of all, they’re available right now! The event marks a limited-time collaboration between Wargaming and Hasbro, starting from September 18 through October 5, 2020. It’ll take place across both PC’s World of Warships and its console counterpart World of Warships: Legends.
Players can align themselves with the Autobots (Optimus Prime and Bumblebee) or the Decepticons (Megatron and Rumble). You can customize your ships with Transformers-inspired skins while hearing famous catchphrases from the cartoon’s larger-than-life cast. Check out the announcement trailer for this unique collaboration below.
The Autobots side comes with two exclusive camouflages: Freedom Fighter, based on Optimus Prime, and Gold Bug, based on Bumblebee. Meanwhile, for the Decepticons, you get Megatron’s Messenger of Oblivion and Rumble’s Crush’n’Destroy. There are also two expendable camouflages on offer – Autobots Ark and Decepticons Disguise – as well as flags and patches. You can also explore Cybertronian Containers where you can find permanent and expendable Transformers camouflages to use in World of Warships as well as 10-skill-point Transformers commanders with special voiceovers and signals.
We are very excited to introduce the iconic Transformers characters into both our games. The Autobots and Decepticons are known around the world, and we took great care to incorporate these characters into the game in an authentic way that will provide our players with fun, new challenges.“
Meanwhile, SVP Corporate Strategy and Business affairs at Hasbro is also enthused about the collaboration:
We’re delighted to give fans the opportunity to activate Transformers characters in World of Warships for a limited time through this collaboration. The World of Warships team have skillfully integrated the Transformers characters into the game to create a unique naval combat experience for fans.”
