More On: World of Warplanes
With the upcoming Gamescom 2011 quickly approaching in mid-August, expect to see Wargaming.net in the fold.  After delivering a decent amount of buzz at E3 regarding their new MMO World of Warplanes, expect to see more information come out at Gamescon in Germany.  While the group is being somewhat mum on what to expect, we know that they are eager to release more information regarding the upcoming MMO that is set to give war gamers a whole new look at the world of online interactive gaming.  While it's tough to make a trip to Germany for those of us in the States, expect more releases after the con is finished.
