The famous info-source for gamers IGN gives a preview of World of Warplanes, the new game project by Wargaming.net, which is to be released in 2012. The source highlights main features of the developed game, pointing out the similarity of the gameplay system of WoWP to the gameplay of highly-anticipated World of Tanks.
Moreover, IGN depicts various aspects of the massively multiplayer online game where players take command of any number of classic aircraft that span roughly from World War 2 to the start of the Vietnam War.
"World of Warplanes is a massively multiplayer online game where players take command of any number of classic aircraft that span roughly from World War 2 to the start of the Vietnam War. You start out with a relatively weak plane, fighting battles so that you can level up your account and earn a ton of in-game currency. Using this currency, you then buy new parts to upgrade your planes and eventually purchase even better aircraft. Of course there are micro transactions to help you out if you don't have the many, many hours needed to grind away, but the option to never pay a dime is there. After all, the company behind World of Warplanes needs people for the paying customers to shoot."
