War Thunder: Ground Forces

War Thunder, the first-person military MMO from Gaijin Entertainment, will rocket onto the PlayStation 4 later this year. In a press release issued earlier today, the Russian developer revealed that it will be leveraging the “potent power” of Sony’s next generation console to redefine the series' rich military action.

"We're convinced that our cooperation with Sony will not only make the War Thunder franchise better, but it will give our fans a new level of gaming experience that will figuratively blow their mind," said Gaijin Entertainment’s creative director Kirill Yudintsev.

He added: "Partnering with Sony Computer Entertainment is the most natural progression for the War Thunder brand, from our hugely successful beginnings on PC with more than 1.5 million players, to our recent announcement that War Thunder is under development for mobile devices. We are excited to bring War Thunder to the leading next generation platform, the PS4.”

According to the developer, the impending release will boast improved head-tracking, enhanced social features, and support for the PlayStation Cloud. We’re not entirely sure what the latter is, but it’s certainly not the first time that we’ve heard about it. There’s a teaser trailer for the game embedded below.
