Imagine you’re Wargaming.net. You announced at Gamescom 2013 that your air combat simulation game World of Warplanes is going to launch in late September yet there’s this massive show in North America called PAX Prime a week later. What do you do to entice both audiences. Well, if you’re Senior Product Marketing Manager Pat Alverado pushing out a new patch at this time would give you plenty to talk about.
Ya know, the Russian Yak line of planes. Oh, and that unified premium account that will likely shake up the free-to-play industry. Even crazier if the company can truly hit its goal of essentially merging all of its titles, World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and the renamed World of Warships.
Before we let Pat go, we ping him once again on the crucial aspect of control. Oh, and the planned live patch, including the British line of planes. All this and more in the interview.
