The USA and Germany will be the only nations available at the start of the closed beta and players will have access to almost 50 warships as well as research trees with the new progression system in tow. The new progression system will allow players to unlock their desired ship in quick fashion.
The Naval Battles closed beta doesn't come without a hitch either though, as it will be available immediately for Xbox One players, but it will require PC and PlayStation 4 players to purchase a founder's pack first. This pack includes one destroyer class vessel, USS Cowell for USA or Karl Galster for Germany. Premium currency and a premium account will also come with the pack, priced at $49.99.
