War Thunder's arrival on Xbox One is surprising, given its prior PlayStation 4 and PC exclusivity - many having assumed it would never make its way to Microsoft's platforms.
War Thunder is developed by Gaijin Entertainment and is a popular military vehicle combat massively multiplayer online game (MMO). As with many MMOs these days, the game is free-to-play and features cross-platform support. The title brings air, land, and sea battles directly to your living room. It also features carefully researched and reconstructed vehicles ranging from the Spanish Civil War to the Cold War period.
War Thunder offers over a thousand playable aircraft, armored vehicles, and ships. American, Soviet, British, German, Italian, Japanese, and French military vehicles are represented in the game. The title got gets regular updates too, so there's always fresh content to explore.
Anton Yudintsev, Gaijin Entertainment's CEO, issued the following statement as a part of a press release:
Our fans have been asking for War Thunder on Xbox One and we have been working toward bringing its crossplay experience to them. We are thrilled to announce that we have reached an agreement with Microsoft to bring War Thunder to Xbox One and Xbox One X. More than 20 million players have enjoyed War Thunder across multiple platforms and we cannot wait for Xbox One and Xbox One X owners to join the battle.
It's great to see War Thunder finally make its way to Xbox One and Xbox One X, especially after years of demand from console users. The game features "true 4K resolution" on Xbox One X. We don't have a concrete release date because the game is currently in development but we'll update you as soon as we do.
