Fans of the realistic warship battle simulator can now get the full experience, as the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and World of Warships developer Wargaming collaborated to make a game room inside the HMS Belfast, A real WW2 warship that was deployed over 80 years ago.

Visitors to the exhibit can play both the World of Warships, and World of Warships: Legends versions on PCs and consoles aboard the ship.

"Over the past year we have been privileged to work with naval museums across the world and support them during an immensely difficult time," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "We are delighted to be able to add a new dimension to the already incredible offering onboard HMS Belfast, and can’t wait to see this historic warship delight and educate visitors once more!"

John Brown, IWM executive director for commercial services and operations, also celebrated the collaboration, stating “the World of Warships Command Centre is a really fantastic addition to the refreshed visitor offer and will enable audiences to interact with HMS Belfast and its history in a completely new way.”

The HMS Belfast exhibit was closed on March 2020 due to the pandemic, but will re-open today with new exhibit spaces and enhanced visitor experiences onboard.
