Players have the option of engaging in ground based or aerial combat; there are over 350 aircraft in the game and over 140 tanks in the game. Each unit is realistic and based on real vehicles that existed during World War II which includes unique statistics for each one. The vehicles in the game are highly customizable and players can upgrade them by researching new technologies; there are three main upgrade areas which allows player to create build that suits their play-style. While each upgrade does require several research points to unlock, it can be done instantly using premium currency.

Most of the cash store is for cosmetic items however there is a clear advantage for players who purchase premium currency; it’s also possible to purchase new vehicles and perks which impact game-play. Players can also pay for a Premium account which provides experience boosts.

There are three unique game-modes open to players: Arcade Battles, Realistic Battles and Simulator Battles. Arcade Battles is the casual mode, the controls and user interface is much more simple which makes it perfect for new players. The Arcade mode also offers large scale team-based warfare where up to 32 players can battle in the same instance.

Realistic Battles is for more experienced players as it requires players to return to base in order to reload their vehicle; players are limited to selecting vehicles from one nation and the mode also allows for historical battle reenactments. Players battle in team-based combat where the controls are much more detailed and more game mechanics, such as physics, are active.

The final game-mode is Simulator Battles which is the most realistic mode and demands that players use a joystick or game-pad to play the game. In this mode, only first person view is available as players fight for their selected country.

War Thunder provides solid game-play and is highly realistic almost to a fault; it features some of the best combat around for this genre of game and has a strong community behind that supports both casual and competitive play. While parts of the game can seem to be pay to win, all game-play changing items can be earned in the game.

Guy with TERRIBLE statistics in RB sits in Be-6 and starts sniping people over 1 km. 4 out of 6 that he killed in this battle was shot around 1.2 km distance. This is not my replay this is SERVER replay screenshots. postimg.org/gallery/2y80fkuto/ Cheating in WT is real

if WT had a super high player count, players operating in individual roles in tanks would be cool. But we don't live in a perfect world, do we?

Why is a single shot phasing like it is? also, reflections are nice, but the amount of bass in the new ones are drenching everything else.

Why not make it so sound reacts differently in certain spaces, like open areas, mountainous and/or cities. You know how the difference is like, would be awesome to have that kind of little detail!

Always loved how Battlefield 3 worked with sounds in different enviroments. Now this. That compression and sound bouncing from objects is epic. And shell casing after fire - ❤

Are you finally going to update the sound of the U.S/British/french .30 Cal machine guns on aircraft so they don't sound like toy guns?

Gaijin please make more game modes, like a attack and defend (similar to rush on battlefield), competitive 4v4, etc all compatible with realistic battles!

War Thunder are you guys thinking of reworking the vortexes wings on aircraft make when they turn or stall? just a little detail but I always liked the vortexes in DCS more than in War Thunder, would be kinda cool to see a better vortex implemented, again, no hush, only if you guys have some spare time 🙂
