Do you like aircraft battles in which there are dozens of players? If you do, you should love War Thunder, the game that's seriously likely to overshadow World of Warplanes.

Lots of planes and game modes

War Thunder offers impressive content for a free game: you'll be spoiled for choice with all the aircraft models available, with attention and respect paid to the identity and history of each of these machines.

When it comes to game modes, you can start a quick game with strangers or friends, or you can choose to create a custom game. The possibility of playing solo is offered, even if the War Thunder's key feature is the clashes between humans. Once you've mastered the basics of the game, you can play in historical battles, taking part in the battles of World War II and adding many details (such as fuel management) that will make for the most intense and realistic fighting.

An excellent game system you can get to grips with immediately

War Thunder fights are exciting, thanks to the game system that offers a perfect balance between fun and realism. You have to adjust your aim based on the enemy's path and above all dodge enemy bursts to avoid taking hits on critical areas on your aircraft.

War Thunder is very well structured and offers you the chance to start off slowly with a very quick tutorial teaching you the basics so you can get stuck into the heart of the game (the clashes between players). You'll then have the freedom to do the other tutorials at your own pace, which will get you started in the most advanced game modes.

An inescapable future of the genre?

War Thunder isn't finished yet, and some features of the final version aren't ready (such as the ability to control land vehicles). But the game is already perfectly playable and offers tense and technical fighting for undeniable gaming pleasure. With the added bonus of being free (it is possible to pay for a premium version that offers modest benefits), we can only recommend War Thunder to all fans of multiplayer games.
