The Hunt is over: The Hunt for Bismarck has officially come to a close! We would like to thank you all for your participation and feedback on what you liked and disliked about the campaign. To cap off the event, we have prepared an infographic showing some of the stats of what your fellow players got up to.
Oopsies: please be aware that for mission #3 in the Hunt for Bismarck campaign, the mission is currently incorrectly rewarding a Secondary Battery Modification 1 which cannot be mounted to any ship. As part of Update 0.6.5.1, next week the reward will be correctly changed to Auxiliary Armaments Modification 1. After the update has been released, players who were rewarded the incorrect upgrade will have it replaced with this one. To avoid any loss in credits, please refrain from selling the Secondary Battery Modification 1 and wait until it is exchanged as part of Update 0.6.5.1. Players who have sold the Secondary Battery Modification 1 will not get it exchanged.
The Hunt for Bismarck Campaign is coming! From 19 May at 07:00 CEST until 08 June at 09:00 CEST (UTC+2) take part in one of the greatest naval operations in the North Atlantic, earn unique rewards and collectibles, and decorate your ships with a new type of special camouflage that changes both the exterior and shape of the ship. The grand prize for completing the campaign is two custom HMS Hood skins, and the Tier VIII German Battleship Bismarck! For the first time we are also introducing collectibles to the game, and there are also two custom skins for Bismarck for players who complete the collection for the event.
The campaign takes you back to May 1941. It will contain seven missions with eight tasks each describing the events that took place during this famous operation. Participate in Operation Rheinübung, avenge the destruction of the British battlecruiser HMS Hood, involve ships of different types in the battle against German raiders, and attack enemy ships with torpedo bombers. All this and many other things are waiting for you within the Hunt for Bismarck campaign!
For each completed task, players will receive a special container that will be available only for the duration of the campaign. Inside you’ll find new Campaign-exclusive signal flags, special camo, and Collectibles: badges and emblems with historical connections to the mission to sink Bismarck!
Each task grants a small event container which contains:
Large containers will be available for players who complete tasks designed for HMS Hood and will offer:
Players who already own Bismarck will be compensated with Credits and a Port Slot. After the collection is complete, players will be who obtain any additional emblem pieces will be compensated 10,000 Credits per piece.
Two new permanent camouflages for Bismarck, including a custom "battle-scarred" camo, await once you complete your Collection. Plus, any duplicate Collectibles you earn after completion earns you 10,000 Credits!
Progressing through the campaign and completing it will also grant a set of three achievements. Players can check out these achievements in the player profile.
