Until now the free-to-play WWII-themed MMO War Thunder delivered dynamic aerial combat gameplay and is soon adding tank warfare too. Developer Gaijin Entertainment has reached the next step of the development for the Ground Forces Expansion and announced the start of the Closed Beta program.
Selected players, who participated in various daily in-game challenges during November, will be among the first to get a taste of intense tank battles and new progression system in this exclusive event.
Ground Forces Expansion marks the next glorious chapter in War Thunder's evolution toward providing gamers with the ability to experience next-gen WWII military gameplay filled with intense action and highly explosive battles, launched from either the air or using armored vehicles.
"Our ultimate goal is to have hundreds of thousands of individual games made up of dozens of players who can experience intense battles where they come from the skies, the land and eventually from the sea," said Anton Yudintsev, CEO, Gaijin Entertainment. "The launch of Ground Forces Expansion closed beta is another step towards that goal."
For users that want exclusive content that will become collector's items when the Open Beta for Ground Forces starts, there is an option to purchase one of the advanced packs at http://online.gaijinent.com. All of these packs will also grant access to the Closed Beta later in December, although the other means of getting access are planned as well.
