War Thunder is evolving, just as developer Gaijin Entertainment promised. While air combat was the only part of the game that was fully playable, the expansion Ground Forces will add tanks and more vehicles to the mix, completely changing the way the game is played. The Ground Forces closed beta is scheduled to begin before December 4th, and you can sign up to the beta at the official website.
War Thunder is a free-to-play MMO combat game dedicated to World War II aviation, armored vehicles and naval fleets. There’s still no news on when to expect the fleet portion of the game. Wargaming is also offering full scale combat with their trilogy (World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships), but the way players interact and combat in those games doesn’t involve combat between different vehicles (planes only fight planes, for example).
