Following numerous requests from the War Thunder community we decided to take part in Steam Greenlight to bring the game to more players who value massive online combat action, realistic and dynamic gameplay and hi-end graphics.
During the Beta Test more then 500 000 players had participated in more then 60 million fly-outs, spending tens of million of hours in the game; and the game has received more then thousand of updates, constantly adding new features and increasing quality of the game.
War Thunder offers a highly detailed and personalized aviation experience, giving players access to hundreds models of planes with detailed cockpits, dozens of upgradable weapons, and flying skills that can be honed and improved with each mission. The massive historical battles featured in War Thunder cannot be fought by aviation alone, so the game will also expose players to combat on land and at sea. Now, at the current stage of development all ground and naval forces are controlled by AI but later during the beta we are going to make them available for players as well as aircrafts.
I fully support their decision to release the game on the STEAM platform via the GreenLight program.
