War Thunder is a free-to-play vehicular combat simulation game developed by Gaijin Entertainment for PC, Mac, Linux, and PlayStation 4 that allows you to pilot a warplane, tank, and even battleships in World War II. Experience a wide array of vehicles from America, to European, to even Japanese, complete with fully furnished interior views of the cockpit! The emphasis on the game is teamwork, so coordinated strikes will be much more valuable than going it alone.
