We’re going to ignore the compulsion to insert overused French exclamations on this one. French cruisers are now available in World of Warships, bringing the nation’s impressive naval power to bear in the seafaring online battler.
According to the description offered by Warships executive producer Artur Plociennik, the new French ships offer a variety of unique and aggressive boats to play with. “You can swiftly change your position, shine in short-range torpedo exchanges, and turn the table on destroyers. With French cruisers, you’re the hunter,” says Plociennik in a statement.
French cruisers excel in short-range combat, with strong anti-torpedo bulkheads and unique consumables like Engine Boost that can spell trouble for destroyers, light cruisers, and aircraft carriers. Ships of repute in the new tree include the Émile Bertin and the La Galissonnière.

Swift and aggressive warships are definitely going to make an impact, especially as a counter to other light cruisers and destroyers. The French fleet could definitely make a very serious impact to World of Warships and were eager to see how players take to the new additions.
