The sky is the limit in War Thunder. Defeat your enemies in the sky or set their tanks ablaze to claim victory for your side...
War Thunder originally started as a free-to-play flight simulator that put players from around the world together in intense dogfights featuring classic warplanes. Aviation warfare was the focal point of Gaijin Entertainment's online game. It was possible to experience what aerial combat was like from the cockpit of a P-51 Mustang or Messerschmitt ME-109 and prove that each player has what it takes to become an Ace. We were writing in the past tense, but none of that has changed! On the contrary, your gaming experience has even been extended in War Thunder. You can still enjoy the beauty of flight simulation in War Thunder, but what's more is that the devs have added an entirely new facet to the war game. With the Ground Forces expansion, players can finally choose whether they want to take seat in the cockpit of an airplane or the narrow interior of a tank. This has opened up a whole new plethora of tactical possibilities in matches.
As you shoot your opponents out of the sky and claim victory in the skies, you will earn experience points which you can use to level up. By leveling up, you unlock new skills and traits that can help you in tight situations up in the air or on the ground. You never realize how valuable some improved armor is on your aircraft until you take a couple good shots right to the fuselage…
With different environments available to budding pilots, War Thunder provides a unique gaming experience. See what it is like to fight epic sea battles above the Pacific against tough opponents or fly over Europe and see vast landscapes as bullets fly past your window. Battle it out against players on the ground and in the blue skies above. Of course, you will have to keep your cool and respond appropriate under pressure because the gameplay is very realistic.
The free-to-play online game offers a very unique gaming experience as it pits tanks against airplanes. No matter the vehicle you choose, you will experience simulation type controls that make your gameplay challenging and fun.
