Godzilla vs Kong partners with World of Warships
April 1, 2021
On the heels of the debut of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ epic action adventure movie Godzilla vs. Kong, the infamous foes will take their battle to the high seas in World of Warships and World of Warships: Legends as part of an exclusive, time-limited collaboration between Wargaming, Legendary Entertainment and Toho Co, Ltd. These massive, iconic Titans will be featured onboard their individual ships, as well as available as playable commanders. Additionally, movie-themed camouflages, patches, flags and more will be available in game during the promotion, which will start later in May. Godzilla vs. Kong is in theaters internationally and, as of March 31, in U.S. theaters and on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release.
In this ultimate heavyweight battle, there can be only one winner. Representing Team Godzilla, wearing blue and weighing 41,217 tons is the Japanese battleship Amagi. In the orange corner, representing Team Kong and weighing 37,484 tons is USS North Carolina battleship. Both teams will come with unique movie-inspired permanent camouflages, but also with their own consumable camouflages, patches, flags, and more. On the console side, World of Warship: Legends players who choose Godzilla will have a unique battleship by the name of Heat Ray while the Kong fans will have a great counterpart in Primal, a battleship representing the creature’s might. All that will be offered together with the accompanying commanders, consumable camouflages, patches, flags and more.
“Nearly 60 years ago, King Kong and Godzilla first faced each other on the big screen in Japan, and since then the rivalry of these mythical creatures has captured the imagination of millions around the world,” said Aleksandr Nikolaev, Senior Publishing Producer from Wargaming. “World of Warships is always searching for new and exciting content our players would appreciate and we are delighted to share with them our vision of this legendary titans clash.”
“Wargaming is the perfect partner to allow fans to jump into the action and take part in the long-awaited showdown between these two massive Titans,” said Sam Rappaport, Director of Interactive Media at Legendary Entertainment. “Through this collaboration, fans will be able to experience the immense size and scale of the movie through this epic clash of Team Godzilla and Team Kong battleships.”
