Gaijin Entertainment today announced that the highly anticipated ground combat closed beta event for War Thunder is now underway. Previously players were only able to explore the aerial combat aspect of the World War II MMORPG game but the developers grow one step closer to their end-game today with the addition of ground forces.
“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.”
Invitations have already been sent out but if you're not one of the lucky few you can purchase premium packages that include a variety of ground combat goodies.
