Gaijin Entertainment, developer and publisher of War Thunder, announced today the start of the closed beta test for their upcoming combat MMO game. The multi-staged beta test will allow tens of thousands of players to become better acquainted with the War Thunder universe, giving fans of the project a chance to contribute to the game’s development.
Closed beta test servers will be open 24 hours a day, meaning that players who have been invited can join the game at any time. To start, participants will have access to more than 100 aircraft models and several different locations, with new content added continuously throughout the test period.
As a sign of gratitude for their interest in Gaijin’s previous flight simulation game, the studio has invited all owners of Gaijin’s Wings of Prey to participate in the closed beta test. Invitees also include all of War Thunder’s alpha testers, as well as a group of fans who have supported Gaijin throughout War Thunder’s development.
The company has just released a new official video, “War Thunder – Beta Launch Trailer”, which demonstrates the global scale of War Thunder’s in-game battles and a variety of gameplay options.
Gaijin has shared their plans to include Royal Air Force combat aircraft in War Thunder: World of Planes. Therefore, the official website’s “Release Tree” section now features a corresponding table with the British aircraft models that will be included in the game by the time it’s released.
