War Thunder

Gaijin continue the expansion of their online title War Thunder with the start of a limited closed beta for the Ground Forces expansion which adds tanks to the action.

The beta test has now been opened to a limited pool of players to test the tank combat and new progression system.

“Our ultimate goal is to have hundreds of thousands of individual games made up of dozens of players who can experience intense battles where they come from the skies, the land and eventually from the sea,” said Anton Yudintsev, CEO, Gaijin Entertainment. “The launch of Ground Forces Expansion closed beta is another step towards that goal.”
