Tweaker.net: Gamescom Hands On

t is not difficult to see that War Thunder clearly the more complete and deeper game is in competition with World of Warplanes. The latter will surely enchant a specific audience that is just looking for a somewhat simpler arcade-like game fly. But are you looking for something more than just that simple gameplay, you'll quickly at War Thunder off. The game offers a lot more content and variation in the content, to a full campaign to it. Once in the dogfights are the differences between the two titles are not even always so great, but the context in which a dogfight is fought is also important, and that part looks at War Thunder a lot stronger than in World of Warplanes.

Indeed, unlike games wargaming here airplanes and tanks can coexist and even take part in multiplayer campaigns.


Nieuwerwets.tv: Interview with Anton Yudintsev, CEO of Gaijin Entertainment

Although War Thunder looks good, the game is insanely better with the virtual reality glasses Oculus Rift, which is fully supported by the game. It is almost indescribable how immersive the experience is to fly from a fully detailed cockpit in 3D.


Mondes Persistants: First look at PS4 version of War Thunder

The graphics level is really impressive. The horizon can be magnified ten times more than on the PC, and the vibration of the joystick when you pull it or take a shell in the tank is very immersive. In addition, the speed of movement of the vehicle is real. So, if you go 60 miles an hour and the map is 20 km long you will take 20 minutes to cross.

The other update worth mentioning has to do with War Thunder and no, it doesn’t have to do with the PS4. Gaijin Entertainment finally showed off a small bit of gameplay footage from the upcoming tank update for the previously fighter plane only simulator. While we can’t speak in too much detail about it, but suffice it to say the update may give World of Tanks a run for its money.

With realism oozing out of the seams, combined with an arcade feel to rope in newbies such as myself, it’s a game that looks like it could draw in just about every gamer. There’s a beta on right now, and I would definitely recommend getting on it and giving it a go.

Games.cz: War Thunder vs. World of Tanks

Despite what you might think, War Thunder is not trying to trump Wargaming, which has the three branches of military divided into their own games. But according to Gaijin, War Thunder is not a direct competitor, because Wargaming focuses more on gallery playing, which War Thunder focuses on… wait for it… war! In practice, this means more realistic graphics and loyal physical models and movement of machines.

The free-to-play game features World War II battles with the contemporary battle machines, battle additional device, the player can either play free or buy.


F2P.com: Gamescom preview of War Thunder

However, the most surprising thing was when the guy controlling the game and talking about it pressed a button and switched from a tank to a plane flying in the sky on the same map and kept playing. That’s right, guys, War Thunder will feature a full “plane and tanks” gameplay on the same map, and they can absolutely fight each other. Moreover, it will be possible to switch from a plane to a tank at any moment. Besides being amazing, this is also impressive if you consider that even Wargaming in their “World of” series is not going to have this simultaneous multi-vehicle mode.


Edge Magazine: Interview with Anton Yudintsev and Kirill Yudintsev, co-founders of Gaijin Entertainment

Bone-Idle: Gamescom preview of War Thunder PS4 version

Each vehicle is designed to match its real world counterpart in every detail, not only from the outside visually but also under the hood as well. Speed, controls and weapons are all realistic. / The game itself plays incredibly smooth, the controls do take some time to get used to but it is quite natural and starts to makes sense within a few minutes. / Warthunder is looking very impressive, it looks and plays well and the chance to take part in the massive epic battles is mouth watering.


9Lives: Gamescom preview of War Thunder

There was a sigh of relief when the good man mentioned that all controller buttons can be assigned to the actions that we want. And whatever the merit of their own Dagor engine will be, everything looked really good on the next- gen console. We were told that the interface appears only when needed and so it remains a largely empty screen to enjoy. Those beautiful vast landscapes with a view of 5,000 kilometers and a total area of ??10,000 m?... you already have to dare to dream.


7 out of 10: Gamescom preview of War Thunder

The big things that War Thunder has going for it, especially when compared to its rivals, is that it has cross-platform play… In fact developers Gaijin are so adamant that the number of players is key that they cite that as the number one reason why War Thunder is also free to play. Players can buy boosts that will give them a percentage increase in XP and in-game currency, but there’s no pay to win we’re assured as planes are unlocked with ranks rather than directly through coin.


4players.de: Gamescom preview of War Thunder

The flight model is far more complex (than World of Warplanes), the planes are susceptible to strong lateral forces, react much more slowly, and differ significantly from model to model. Also, targeted shooting with the cannon is demanding and dogfights are a challenge, even in the simple arcade mode. In addition, more options are available for the pilots : There are elaborately designed cockpits and take-offs and landings. Also, the mission objectives are very different.


4Gamer.net: Gamescom preview of War Thunder

According to (Gaijin), the server is running only in the EU and Russia / America at the moment. It's because the fans are focused on weapons from Russian troops and the United States..., hmm...... surely they will open up a server in Japan soon.


Star Conflict will do for spaceships what World of Tanks did for... umm

How many space battles have you had today? Were they good space battles and did you enjoy them? How much did your space battles cost you? Star Conflict offers you just about as many space battles as you could possibly want, space battles in deadly starfighters and great, hulking, multi-turreted frigates.


War Thunder is the best MMO that you've never heard of

You should have heard of it by now, too, yet it’s had only cursory coverage in the western games media. Still, that hasn’t stopped the over 500,000 players signing up for the open beta, climbing into their cockpits and peppering each other with holes for hours on end.


Review: Star Conflict

If you’re on this website, odds are you have a softspot for flying a spaceship. Chances are also pretty good that you like blowing up other spaceships while flying a spaceship. Star Conflict, a game which has been in open beta for several months, is our staff’s latest obsession. This space sim, who developer Star Gem Inc. bills it as “MMO SPACE ACTION”, is free-to-play, easy-to-play, and shows surprising polish and sophistication for a game which, until its recent massive success on Steam, has remained all but off the radar of the gaming public.


Star Conflict - Hands on

Dopo War Thunder, rivelatosi una graditissima sorpresa per tutti gli amanti della simulazione aerea e del gaming online, abbiamo avuto occasione di giocare un altro MMO sviluppato da Gaijin Entertainment, uno Space Sim free-to-play orientato verso lo stesso tipo di pubblico. Per chi non l'avesse ancora capito, stiamo parlando di Star Conflict, un gioco al momento in fase open beta, da poco rilasciato su Steam: un titolo che mira a riempire il vuoto di un'industria che da diversi anni sembra snobbare il genere delle simulazioni spaziali.


mmohuts.com: First Look at Star Conflict OBT

StarConflict is a dynamic action MMO, allowing you to sit at the helm of a starship and take part in massive star fleet battles! Control several different ships from fast and furious interceptors, to powerful, hulking, frigates as you and your squad fight for galactic dominance. With a slight arcade feel, StarConflict takes dogfights to an intergalactic extreme, giving you full 360 degree control, cloaking, lasers and, who doesn't like space nukes!?


Run n Gun — A Solid Endless Runner by Gaijin Entertainment

You will never guess what you’re going to be doing in Gaijin Entertainment’s Run ‘n’ Gun: you’re gonna be running, while gunning. Amazing. But is this game as freaking amazing as this introduction to said game’s review? Let’s take a look.


Run'n'Gun review from pocketgamer.co.uk

All joking aside, Run'n'Gun really isn't a particularly fresh concept, so it had better play a mean game if it's to impress.
