Today Dec. 19 Wargaming.net released Update 1.1 for its recently launched flight combat MMO action game, "World of Warplanes." A significant amount of content was added to the game: 14 new aircraft, two battle arenas, and new epic and tiered achievements. To celebrate, everyone who logs into "World of Warplanes" from Dec. 23, 2013 to Jan. 16, 2014 can score a free premium plane: The Curtiss Model 68C Hawk III. Wargaming.net also announced a sweepstakes where one lucky player will win an Alienware Aurora Gaming Desktop.

According to a prepared statement we received from the director of global operations for "World of Warplanes" Vlad Belozerov:

This update is focused on making the player experience more enjoyable by addressing a number of technical and gameplay balance issues. We’re also excited to give players the chance to try out a new line of German fighters.

The new update adds another line of fighters to the German tech tree, including nine Focke-Wulf warplanes that are "known for their overall balance, combat performance, and maneuverability." There's also five new premium Tier 5 aircraft, including the Russian Curtiss P-40 M-105, the UK Miles M. 20, the US Grumman XF4U-1, and the German Messerschmitt Me 209V. Other improvements include two new battle arenas "Adriatic" and "Castle," new achievements and customizable items to earn, control improvements, and balance and bug fixes.
