World of Planes changes name, official website relaunched, beta starts in Q1 2012

Gaijin Entertainment, developer and publisher of the upcoming World of Planes action MMO, is happy to announce new details about the game. This project is expanding its horizons, along with its name. The action MMO is now called War Thunder: World of Planes. This name change is significant because the online multiplayer universe Gaijin is developing has evolved beyond pure aerial combat.

Today Gaijin has also relaunched the game’s official website. It is now a convenient and informative web portal that will also be tightly integrated with up-to-date game stats in the near future. The game’s official website features the first edition of aircrafts and locations available in World of Planes, which will be consistently updated with new content as the game progresses.
