War Thunder: Ground Forces Beta Advances, Storms Rezzed

By Alice O'Connor on March 28th, 2014.

Huah!

The chaps over at Gaijin Entertainment are still waxing their moustaches and sewing cool patches onto their jackets, not quite yet ready to roll out War Thunder‘s tank-adding expansion Ground Forces. This weekend they plan to invite “a really large number” of new players to join the closed beta testing, rewarding pilots who’ve been completing daily tasks in the base game. Oh, life’s always easier for the teacher’s pet.

Or you could simply be at EGX Rezzed in Birmingham this weekend, where Ground Forces will be playable by all and sundry. Even Adam and Graham. Read the rest of this entry »

Open Your Wallet For War Thunder’s Ground Forces Beta

By Craig Pearson on December 6th, 2013.


“Load the platinum cannons with the world’s largest diamond!”
*Ker-chunk*
“Loaded, sir! But we don’t have anything to fire it at.”
“You’re right, Jiggingtons! We’ve already blasted a hole where the Mona Lisa’s smile should be, and knocked the arms off the Venus de Milo. I need to purchase more art to destroy. Gentlemen, stand down. Amuse yourselves while I’m at the super-secret auction.”
“Expositionally well done, sir. Sir, can we play some War Thunder while you’re gone? There are tanks in the closed beta, and all you need to do get in is buy a …”
“Don’t be bloody stupid, Jiggingtons! I’m not made of money! Now hand me my ivory backscratcher, and get the man who tells the man who tells the other man to open the door for me. I’m orf.”

The Star’s The Star: Star Conflict

By Jim Rossignol on April 15th, 2013.


Can this really be the first game called Star Conflict? The ten seconds of research I applied to the question suggests that it is. Amazing. Anyway, this space combat game from Gaijin is looking interesting. It’s a Russian MMO heading to the west, and it sits roughly along the lines of World Of Tanks or Mechwarrior Online, only this time you’re a space pilot with a big old spaceship full of lasers. So it’s team-based rounds of fighting, with resource-spending and tinkering in the intermissions. The pace of it (at least judging by the gameplay footage I’ve found, some of which you can see below) seems fairly sedate compared to the whizzy zero-G kung fun we’re used to from space games. I understand it’s more of a game of positioning and loadout tactics than reaction time and flight skill, but I can see why that would appeal to a few players. #oldmen

Sky Battles Afoot: World Of Planes Trailer

By John Walker on August 25th, 2011.

PEW PEW PEW!

Oh this could get awkward. Wargaming.net recently announced World Of Warplanes to join World Of Tanks and the forthcoming World Of Battleships. But it seems another MMO already had a very similar idea. The imaginatively titled World Of Planes from Gaijin Entertainment was first announced in April, and has a debut trailer out today. In a world where you can’t have The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Scrolls without trouble, I’m impressed that this one hasn’t kicked off yet. (Let alone Blizzard getting involved.) Also, World Of Planes’ trailer is pretty.
