Sadly, no sort of endorsement from the person presenting the game. Wonder why? Asking too much money to do the voice-over? Dunno. 

I wonder though... how will hook into the game as Steam is already out there? 

Will there be any big brouhaha when it does go "live", as in special ships, camos, etc?  I guess TWT.

Depends on what Epic and WG will work out. If the game is simply listed on the Store and just links you WGC it will mostly be attracting already existing users of the platform. That said just going for the freebies could also be a method of attracting players considering Epic has a pretty bare platform.  Regardless of how it goes, it was about time for the game to be expanding on different platforms; similarly WoT got a Steam listing which is also pretty big news.

I didn't see Missouri advertised anywhere; just a bunch oc historical images merged into gameplay images. Correct me if I'm wrong.

The signing of the Japanese surrender on Missouri, they showed the historical images and then the in game model of Missouri.

It's slight, but enough to turn on the Missouri history nuts into thinking they can get her.

They only say ships like Iowa, Bismarck and Yamato are available ... but they do feature a prominent ingame image of Iowa (who outside the game would really know it's NOT Missouri?).

And as mentioned above, the historic and ingame images of the surrender ceremony is a highlight in their video.

I used to play a Vietnam game. When they got added to Epic, on their server the amount of players tripled. Wonder if that will happen here?

Anything can happen, but I'd expect at least some increase in the number of players.

 

Hell, the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic is a very old game and when it went on Steam in mid-2020, veteran players mentioned a big spike in players.

 

So anything can happen.

After getting the short list ships... Then all the others.

Missouri was literally the last ship I got from Santa boxes for 2020 after exhausting literally every other alternative between the last two years.

That marketing video is false advertisement.  Those battleships we're moving, and we all know 90% of the time they don't leave the J-line.
