World of Warplanes  



Diary of a Warplane


5:00 PM on 06.26.2012



I'm not much of a fan of heights, but I do love blowing things up. World of Warplanes looks like it will force me to confront my fears in an effort to send enemy pilots crashing to the ground. In the third developer diary, the team details some of the modes which will be available to players once the title launches.

Superiority is the core mode, and it looks like the most fun to me. Not being into "helping" folk, I doubt I'll care much for Escort mode. Everybody isn't as selfish as I am, I hope. Finally, there's the tutorial mode. Does that really count as a mode? Apparently it does. I certainly enjoyed my time with World of Tanks, so I'm anticipating more fun all over again.
