John St. John is known as the voice of the king himself, Duke Nukem, reprising the role in every game to date. Ready to take on a new challenge, St. John was given two options by Wargaming: begin another voice role or chew bubblegum. He was all out of bubblegum, so he’ll be joining World of Warships as the “pirate voice over” in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day. St. John’s voice now appears in the game in pirate form and the voice will remain beyond “Talk Like A Pirate Day” as an in game sound option gamers can toggle on or off.
“Finally, the pirate voice I’ve had inside my head since I was a kid can be heard out loud in World of Warships,” says St. John. “Too bad I have such a hard time playing the game wearing this eye patch.”
Additionally, captains will be able to earn a special skull and crossbones “Jolly Roger” pirate flag on Talk Like a Pirate Day (Monday, September 19). Simply win one battle on that day to festoon your vessel with the prized booty.
