War Thunder (ALL) Celebrates 6th Anniversary With Freebie, Special Tournament

by Rainier on Nov. 1, 2018 @ 6:01 a.m. PDT

War Thunder is an MMO dedicated to World War II military aviation. You will take part in all of the major combat battles, fighting with real players all over the world. Become a lone hero or lead your squadron to victory — the choice is yours!

In War Thunder, you can take part in major battles on land, in the air, and at sea, fighting with real players from all over the world in a continuously developing environment.

You can feel the unmatched intensity of aerial dogfights in a fighter, the decisive power of commanding a heavy strategic bomber or the heat of battle in a ground attacker, delivering precision strikes against your enemies. Alternatively, you can join the spearhead of armored vehicles, fighting for dominance over the battlefield on the ground: Man a heavy tank with impressive armor and firepower, use the maneuverability of a medium or light tank to your advantage, or support your team by screening the skies with your anti aircraft vehicle - the choice is yours!

In the future, the game will also allow players to ‘set sail’ by commanding a variety of warships in the fight over the control of the world’s oceans, giving the game a truly epic scale.

Master your vehicles through both upgrades and personal experience in an environment that is constantly expanding and rewarding the personal skill of the player. Organize your efforts in one of the countless player squadrons and become an ace pilot or tanker - or both! Our thriving and welcoming community of millions of players is also actively participating in the game’s ongoing development, offering custom content through War Thunder Live, such as skins, missions and even vehicles.

War Thunder has something for everyone. Play cooperative games with your friends on Windows PC, Linux, Mac or PS4 against AI, or squad up for a PvP battle in a difficulty setting matching your play style, ranging from Arcade to Simulator using Mouse and Keyboard, Gamepad or Joystick.


Gaijin Entertainment invites all fans of War Thunder to join them in celebrating the vehicular combat game’s six year anniversary. Players await several specials and events in game. Including discounts of up to 50% in the game store, free boosters, decals, a giveaway of the Soviet premium ship Ya-5M as well as tournaments for the rare German E-100 tank and He 162 jet fighter.

In just six years, War Thunder has grown from an air combat simulator to a massive vehicular combat game featuring the largest arsenal of playable vehicles ever, presenting players with over 1000 different tanks, aircraft, helicopters and ships from the 1930s to the early 1990s. The six year anniversary specials are a perfect opportunity for all fans to expand their lineups of vehicles even further, including the chance to unlock some of the rarest vehicles available in game.

From November 1st to November 5th, all players that reach five victories in the recently introduced Naval Battles will permanently receive the exclusive Soviet gunboat Ya-5M, while participating in just one battle of any kind will yield the exclusive “6 Years of War Thunder” decorative decal.

Through special tournaments, players can obtain a coupon for some of the rarest vehicles in game: the German super-heavy E-100 tank and the He 162 A-1 jet fighter. Competitive matches are available in all game modes and both single players and groups can participate. While the competition will be fierce, the rewards are definitely worth fighting for, as those vehicles cannot be obtained in War Thunder by any other means. Winners of a coupon are able to use it to unlock the vehicle for themselves, or sell it on the Gaijin Market to other players. Given the rarity, those coupons will certainly be in high demand!

The War Thunder anniversary celebrations will continue until November 10.
