The 80th Anniversary of the D-Day Event - 13.4 - 13.5

80 years ago this June, Allied forces undertook the largest amphibious operation in military history. Totalling nearly 7,000 ships and vessels of all types, a massive invasion fleet drawing from the naval forces of eight nations transported thousands of troops in a head-on assault on Fortress Europe. In honor of this incredible military operation, three new operations are coming to World of Warships in a new event battle type!

Each operation makes up a part of our own retelling of the D-Day events. These scenarios will last two weeks each, include battleships, cruisers, and destroyers of tiers V-VII, and will accommodate up to 6 players in a division. Don't have a suitable ship? We have you covered - rental ships will be available to all players for these operations.

Unlike previous thematic operations, with several difficulty options to choose from, the D-Day operations will only have a single level, and completing the primary objective will not be the hardest part. However, we've brought back stars for completing additional missions for the duration of D-Day event. These missions will grant you extra stars and increase the overall difficulty of the operation. 

Earning these extra stars will enable quick progression through a special rewards track in the Port. There are three parts to the reward track with each one unlocking as each new operation becomes available. The rewards for all three parts of the main track include new content like historical Commanders Robert Jaujard and William Tennant, as well as new permanent camouflages "Force of Liberation" and "Invasion Stripes" for Jervis and Baltimore. Additionally, finishing each part of the track in good order will unlock extra levels and rewards - "More Signals" and new "D-Day" containers. D-Day containers are unique to this event and may even drop a variety of premium vessels, including a few brand-new ones! Be sure to check out the container contents below.

As part of the operations commemorating D-Day, we'll be introducing a special event mechanic called "Intelligence". Intelligence will give bonuses against specific types of enemies, with three different levels: Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret, with additional bonuses for each level. For example:

  • Intelligence on enemy coastal defenses may provide increased armor penetration against these structures at Confidential level, reduce the chance that they set you on fire at Secret level, and increase your own accuracy against them at Top Secret level.
  • Intelligence on enemy destroyers may increase your gun accuracy when firing on them at Confidential level, while reducing damage taken from their torpedoes and increasing the damage they take from your shells at Secret and Top Secret levels, respectively.

Note that Intelligence modifiers will only affect the interactions of your own ship with enemy ships and structures; they will not assist allies directly and bonuses are not shared with teammates. They'll have to bring their own!

There will be a total of twelve unique options available to choose from - 6 for Allies and 6 for Axis. Captains may choose up to 3 to bring into battle at once and may even modify their choices for a short duration after the start of the battle! Mix and match your choices to best fit your playstyle and each operation - in case you can't decide, you will automatically receive suitable options.

One Intelligence option each for Allies and Axis will be available from the start of the event; earn additional choices by acquiring "Classified Documents" envelopes from the event rewards track. Since each Intelligence option only needs to be acquired once, progressing deeper into the rewards track will increase the likelihood of obtaining Secret and Top Secret levels. Finishing the rewards track also guarantees access to all available Intelligence; we hope you'll enjoy discovering combinations that fit your playstyle just right!

Operations 13.4 - 13.5

First Operation:

In Update 13.4, the first Operation gives you the opportunity to command the Allied forces on the approach to Utah Beach. Helm ships from the U.K.; U.S.A.; Commonwealth; France; Europe (flag shipicon VII Blyskawicaflag shipicon VI Stord, flag shipicon VII Stord '43, and flag shipicon VII Grom); or the Netherlands into battle. Your mission: suppress the coastal defenses and ensure the safe arrival of the Allied landing craft.

Second Operation:

With the start of Update 13.5, the second Operation will become available. This time, you'll command a squad of German destroyers in an effort to delay the Allied onslaught for as long as possible and defend the legendary Omaha Beach.

Third Operation:

The final Operation takes place during the last 2 weeks of Update 13.5. Command Allied forces on a daring rescue mission to Omaha Beach: find and recover damaged Allied vessels while destroying the coastal defenses and ultimately finding a safe landing point to begin offloading the rescued crews.

80 Years Since D-Day Flag

This year, we dedicated our Longest Night of the Museums event to the ships involved in the Allied landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944. All of them were turned into museums that naval history lovers can visit and admire.

Ruse of War Patch

As part of the collaboration with Marco Materazzi—the legendary Matrix.

Sword of Freedom Patch

Painters, designers, and actors—creative thinking was the prerequisite for joining the famous Ghost Army. The top-secret U.S. unit misled the enemy about Allied troop movements and plans by deploying fake tanks, phony aircraft, and staging shortly before D-Day. They continued to conduct their activities to sow confusion in enemy intelligence until the end of the war.

Momentous Day Patch

Masters of sabotage, the French Resistance fighters aided the Normandy Landings by working to incapacitate the enemy's infrastructure. They cut telephone cables and destroyed strategically important railroads in an effort to cut off Normandy in the days before D-Day.

Commonwealth Rockfish Patch

Often referred to as "the beginning of the end of World War II," D-Day is the largest amphibious operation that has ever been executed. The landings began in the early morning hours of June 6, 1944, when the first shots were fired by Allied armada ships. Two of them, HMS Belfast and USS Texas, have been preserved and turned into museum ships.
  • Lastly, we're excited to announce that we are adding a new port into the game for this event. During the D-day event, you'll be able to access the new Port by clicking the D-Day banner in Port or by selecting the D-Day battle type. Your previous Port in the Port selection window will not be affected by this change and you can easily return to it at any time.
