World of Warships, Wargaming’s long-anticipated naval strategy title, officially launches on Sept. 17.

We all knew World of Warships‘ release date was coming in, like a storm on the horizon. You could practically smell it on the waves. (Or make an educated guess when the open beta launched last July.) Now we finally know when Wargaming’s naval strategy title will arrive: Sept. 17, 2015. The finished game includes four ship classes, American and Japanese tech trees, and over 80 historical vessels from across the world.

“Based on our Open Beta success with World of Warships, Wargaming is poised to launch our next big game,” Head of Global Publishing Fred Menou said in a statement. “With 2 million participants and the average player spending 3 hours a day in game we have an armada of sea captains ready to take the helm of the ultimate naval combat game.”

In case you missed our previews, World of Warships is a free-to-play, online wargame bringing World of Tanks gameplay to the open seas. Two teams assemble a fleet based on real-world Cruisers, Destroyers, Battleships, and Aircraft Carriers, and pit them against each other in a battle for supremacy. Wargaming has gone to great lengths to make World of Warships accessible to new and old wargamers alike – and from what we saw of the beta, it seems to be paying off.

Like Wargaming’s other MMOs, World of Warships is free-to-play with ships that can be earned or purchased in-game. You’ll be able to download it from the official site on launch day.
