Wargaming's air combat free-to-play MMO, World of Warplanes, will release in CIS countries on Sept. 25 and North America and Europe on Sept. 26 for Windows PC, the company announced today.

World of Warplanes will launch with more than 100 different aircraft models from the U.S., Germany, Russia and Japan, along with British planes. World of Warplanes entered open beta testing in early July after being in a closed beta since the end of May 2012. According Wargaming, the game recorded almost three million beta registrants, with 202 million combat flights to date.

"In the two months since the launch of open beta, we've made a huge amount of progress," Oleg Gotynyan, development director of World of Warplanes, said in a statement. "We are extremely thankful for the feedback and data our testers provided to us through both closed and open beta. They contributed a great deal to the process of helping scale the game, and we expect it to offer a deep and polished experience to both MMO fans and flight combat enthusiasts alike."
