War Thunder Summary
Gaijin Entertainment will release an update soon for free-to-play MMO War Thunder that will enable cross-platform play between PC and PlayStation 4. The Ground Forces expansion is due June 5th on PS4.
There's no specific date for this major update but Gaijin did say its due in the "immediate future", and Thursday next week sounds rather immediate and futuristic enough.
Swap your wings for a pair of treads in War Thunder as the Ground Forces expansion is now available to every single pilot as it moves into open beta. Update 1.41 marks the invasion of armoured tanks in the MMO.
There are also new planes in the hangar for those who prefer their feet off the ground. Currently USSR and German armour roam the battlefield, with a new video highlighting update 1.41.
War Thunder is about to get a lot more personal as Gaijin Entertainment's Update 1.39 for the dogfighting MMO has received a new toolset letting pilots customise their planes from paint work to entirely new models.
They're going all 'user generated content' on War Thunder, and an internal system checks if these custom creations pass muster and abide the game's rules - if so, then they can be shared.
According to a report from SuperData Research, Wargaming's F2P MMO World of Tanks is leading the pack for average revenue per user among the free-to-play MMO big boys with $4.51. Valve is second.
Team Fortress 2 is just behind with $4.36 on average, with Guilds Wars 2 third at $3.88. DOTA 2 and League of Legends are eighth and tenth respectively with $1.54 and $1.32.
Gaijin Entertainment has added all-new armoured tanks to the current closed beta of the Ground Forces expansion to War Thunder. The USSR gets five while Germany gets four added to its garage.
There is also a new challenging map called Kuban that is available to all closed beta testers. War Thunder itself remains in open beta with over 5 million registered players.
