LOS ANGELES and SINGAPORE – November 27, 2012 – / MMOGameWire / PointMMO, a new digital distribution platform focused on Free-to-Play MMO games, has 5,000 beta keys for World of Warplanes, Wargaming.net’s flight combat MMO action game that is poised to build on the success of the World of Tanks franchise. The beta is currently up and running and interested players can grab a key and get started at: http://www.pointmmo.com/giveaway/wowpbetakeys/

“World or Warplanes is a fast-paced action game that really pushes the limit of aerial combat, must like its predecessor, World of Tanks,” said Kay Gruenwoldt, CEO of PointMMO. “We know beta keys are getting scarce right now and hope the community seizes the opportunity to check out this very fun game while keys are still available.”

World of Warplanes is the flight combat MMO action game set in the Golden Age of military aviation. The game continues the armored warfare theme marked in the highly-acclaimed World of Tanks and will throw players into a never-ending tussle for air dominance.

Based purely on aircraft setting, World of Warplanes will allow players to build full-scale careers of virtual pilots offering machines of several key eras, staring from 1930’s with biplanes and up to Korean War jet fighters that led the way to modern air forces.

World of Warplanes will feature a wide range of warbirds, each of them unique in their effectiveness and behavior. Virtual pilots will choose from three main warplane classes — single-engine light fighters capable of engaging enemies in close dogfights, heavy fighters with their deadly straight attacks, and ground-attack aircraft, the fearsome threat for ground targets.

Every plane will feature multiple variations of ammo types, engines, and other crucial modules, and their various combinations will allow to pick the optimal configuration for the most effective behavior in combat. 

PointMMO features the fastest download available for every title on the platform thanks to proprietary progressive download technology embedded in the system. The platform is also adding browser games to the mix giving online gamers even more choice when they decide what game they want to play.
