The free-to-play flight sim War Thunder launched on PS4 just days after its launch, and developer Gaijin Entertainment has been supporting it ever since. The point is that the team knows its way around military planes, so the announcement of Aces of Thunder (which isn't free-to-play, by the way) is pretty exciting.

This new title is a PSVR2 game that'll have you flying various WW2-era planes in first-person. Having played Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown's virtual reality missions on the original PSVR, we can safely say this will be a pretty intense experience. Unlike that game, however, Aces of Thunder looks to be much more realistic. You'll be put in the cockpit of true-to-life recreations of military aircraft, and then engage in dogfights in online multiplayer battles.

According to the official description, the game has been "made specifically with capabilities of PlayStation VR2 in mind", so we expect it'll take full advantage of the hardware's bells and whistles. The blurb continues, mentioning various multiplayer modes, "physically accurate" flight and damage models, and "dozens of legendary planes" to pilot.

There's no release date as yet, but you can wishlist the game on PS Store now. What do you make of Aces of Thunder? Dive bomb to the comments section below.
