Info: War Thunder (formerly known as World of Planes) is a WWII combat simulation MMO developed by Gaijin Entertainment. The game currently focuses on combat aircraft and features a realistic flight combat experience. The developer also plans to add warships and tanks in the future.

War Thunder offers a highly detailed and personalized aviation experience, giving players access to hundreds models of planes with detailed cockpits, dozens of upgradeable weapons, and flying skills that can be honed and improved with each mission. Thanks to the game¡¯s painstaking attention to detail, you¡¯ll truly feel like a World War II fighter pilot as you plunge into battle.

The genuine World War II experience isn¡¯t limited to the skies. The massive historical battles featured in War Thunder cannot be fought by aviation alone, so the game will also expose players to combat on land and at sea.

Key Features:
? Varied PvP-experiences set in full-scale combat missions.
? Multiple settings options allow advanced virtual pilots and beginners to enjoy playing the game together.
? Rich PvE content: dynamic campaigns, solo missions, mission editor, and much more for single-player and cooperative gameplay.
? Impressive diversity includes detailed models of planes and their cockpits, as well as tanks and ships.
? Astonishing graphics, authentic sound effects, and beautiful music.

      good game, pretty well balanced, the financial system is far less oppressive than World of Planes/Tanks
      they are still tweaking the game but all in all far superior to WoP

      • Ben M

        I think you mean World of Warplanes not World of Planes because World of Planes is the old name for War Thunder ?

      Not joy stick friendly, if you like flying with a mouse its a great game.
