Wargaming’s major new free-to-play release World of Warplanes has just been upgraded to version 1.1, and the developer has detailed what differences players will now find in the game.

The biggest addition comes via 14 additional aircraft. Nine of those are part of the Focke-Wulf family—warplanes “known for their overall balance, combat performance, and maneuverability” according to Wargaming—belonging to the German tech tree. Meanwhile, the remaining five are new Tier 5 premium aircraft, which include the Russian Curtiss P-40 M-105, the UK Miles M. 20, the US Grumman XF4U-1, and the German Messerschmitt Me 209V.

Beyond new planes, Update 1.1 brings two new battle arenas (Adriatic and Castle), shooting mechanic and supremacy balance teaks, bug fixes, “major improvements” to mouse and joystick controls, and additional achievements and customization items.

“This update is focused on making the player experience more enjoyable by addressing a number of technical and gameplay balance issues,” director of global operations for World of Warplanes Vlad Belozerov said in Wargaming’s announcement of the update. “We’re also excited to give players the chance to try out a new line of German fighters.”

Additionally, Wargaming has planned some special promotions for World of Warplanes players in celebration of Update 1.1. The developer will be giving all players that log in between next Monday (December 23rd) and January 16th a free in-game premium plane—the Curtiss Model 68C Hawk III. According to Wargaming, this plane will only be available via this special limited-time event.

As well, Wargaming has teamed up with Alienware to offer up a special prize in celebration of the release. For Update 1.1, a special fourth training mission has been added to the game. Any players who complete it (and the game’s three other training missions) between now and Sunday, January 5th at 11:59PM Pacific will automatically be entered to win an Alienware Aurora Gaming Desktop PC, with 10 other lucky winners netting the just-added premium plane, the Messerschmitt Me 209V.
