War Thunder is a free-to-play MMO aerial combat game dedicated to the most critical World War II and Korean War battles, with the most important battles of the game set during the period from 1939 to 1953. Initially the studio Gaijin Entertainment is focusing on military aviation, but the plan is to later include tanks and battleships to the mix.
War Thunder offers hundreds of highly detailed planes with amazingly realistic cockpits modeled accordingly with the actual prototype and dozens of weapons that you can upgrade. The impressive graphics and authentic sound effects offer an immersive experience. The game features PvP combat but also includes PvE that ranges from solo missions to dynamic campaigns and cooperative missions, as well as a mission editor.
The airplanes included are from countries such as the USA, USSR, UK, Japan, and Germany, as well as some additional planes from Australia, Italy and more.
War Thunder is the biggest challenger to World of Warplanes, offering an aerial combat experience that is more realistic than the Wargaming.net title but also fun and exciting.
