Gaijin Entertainment released the following statement celebrating War Thunder’s full launch:
The road to release for War Thunder has been a fantastic journey, packed with development, we have from the outset been active in development and content heavy in regular updates to the game. Our commitment to the game has provided players with millions of hours of passion filled gameplay and we have gained many, many players as well as the veterans who have been with us from the very beginning. To all our fans, we sincerely thank you, we are so grateful for the continued support of our project and look forward to your continued support into the release.
We will continue to develop the game we all know and love but you won’t be seeing the same major changes in direction we have all been part of throughout the testing, gameplay and core mechanics can now settle down and we can at last concentrate on giving the game the polish and content it deserves. Additions will continue, there are still many military vehicles that can be included, our mapmakers will still create wonderful vistas and beautiful scenery to wage war in, of course there are still exciting features yet to be added – such as World War mode, new nations, new tournaments and more.
It’s been a pleasure to provide you, our players, with such an already filled out battle simulator and we look forward to even more happy times together as we continue to tread the path of the warrior.
War Thunder is currently available for download on PS4 for free.
