War Thunder has just started it’s Open Beta for Ground Forces – a tank based expansion for it’s hugely popular aerial combal MMO.
At the moment, tanks can’t fight in the same battles as planes (although during the testing period it will be possible occasionally) as the developers are keen to not fully integrate the two until they’re 100% happy with it. However, if you’re dying for some land to air combat, you can always access it through the ‘custom battle’ options.
Tanks are a welcome addition to the world of War Thunder. Although they can’t fly, they’re a bit slow and they’re rubbish at doing barrel rolls, they’ve got some kick-ass weaponry and they’re great fun to drive. Also, as you can see from the in-game footage above, it looks fantastic, full of explosions and carnage. War Thunder is free-to-play war sim just got better – Tanks for nothing.
