War Thunder Unleashes the Big Guns

War Thunder - news
 

Latest update to War Thunder, called 'Big Guns', arrives today introducing to the game deformable terrain, map improvements, graphical enhancements, additional armored vehicles, new aircrafts and in-game items.

This update marks the arrival of the biggest vehicles from WWII: the formidable bomber B29 Superfortress, with a wingspan larger than some modern airliners, and the super-heavy tank, Pz.Kpfw.VIII Maus, which weighed an incredible 188 tons. Additionally, the USSR gets the early version of the legendary Il-2 Sturmovik, which has the most detailed armor modelling (30 individual components) on any plane in a flight simulator to date. Overall, 14 new planes and tanks join the War Thunder arsenal.

Big Guns brings to the game in-game items, which players can obtain in a number of ways, including daily login bonuses, special gifts, winning battles and through the in-game
store. These items can grant discounts, premium planes or tanks and many other stuff.

The update also makes the game more realistic with the addition of different terrains. Now tanks move faster over roads, but drift more and slow down when they hit mud or soil. The tanks actually slow down and start to chew up the earth, carving deep grooves in the tank’s path, and of course this off-road driving affects the vehicles’ appearance, leaving them covered in dirt and dust.

And this is not all. Big Guns also comes with improved performance and graphics quality for
low-end PCs, binocular views and driver cameras for more realistic tank game modes, operable canopies for aircraft and night lights and contrails for planes.
