War Thunder makes its PS4 debut next week

War Thunder, Gaijin Entertainment's free-to-play MMO combat game dedicated to World War II military aviation, armored vehicles and fleets, is coming to the PlayStation 4 next week.

"The most important part is that War Thunder is an online game and it evolves constantly," said Gaijin PR manager Alexander Trifonov. "There were several major updates for the PC version of the game since November, including the launch of the Ground Forces expansion pack. This addition allows players to control armored vehicles such as tanks and anti-air guns which are fighting planes in some of the game modes. This simulates the realities of war where different army branches always supplemented each other in battles."

The PS4 release will mark the latest version of the game, meaning the Ground Forces expansion will already be included at launch. It also includes all of the features founding the latest 1.41 version of the game, including 350 different planes, squadron battles, 150 different multiplayer missions, and single-player campaigns and scenarios. Before wrapping things up, Trifonov teased that Gaijin is "preparing something special" for PS4 players, but it looks like we're going to have to wait to find out more.
