Gaijin Entertainment teases military MMO game War Thunder for PS4
War Thunder will make an appearance on the PlayStation 4 this holiday season. This military MMO will be self published on PSN by developer Gaijin Entertainment and will offer highly detailed air, sea, and land skirmishes in a first-person perspective.
Interestingly enough, Gaijin’s press release talks a bit about the PS4 tech and what War Thunder will be taking full advantage of. This includes the DualShock 4 for precise control over the planes, tanks, and war ships. They also mention PlayStation Cloud, not a naming convention that is frequently tossed around just yet. War Thunder “will have full support of PlayStation Cloud.”
Of course, the socialization features triggered by the infamous Share button will include “smart and easy options to record, stream and share homemade gameplay videos.” Gaijin Entertainment’s creative director Kirill Yudintsev talks about how Sony is helping:
We’re convinced that our cooperation with Sony will not only make the War Thunder franchise better, but it will give our fans a new level of gaming experience that will figuratively blown their mind.
He continues with a statement that we’ll be hearing a lot from developers of PC games as well as mentioning that a mobile version (likely smart phones) of War Thunder is in development.
Partnering with Sony Computer Entertainment is the most natural progression for the War Thunder brand, from our hugely successful beginnings on PC with more than 1.5 million players, to our recent announcement that War Thunder is under development for mobile devices. We are excited to bring War Thunder to the leading next-generation platform, the PS4.
I do believe that is quite enough quotes for one post. Let this teaser trailer and what we want so dearly to know about PS4, PlayStation Cloud, and the future of PlayStation Network as well as its stores spark your imagination in the comments section below. Will the PS4 just be a PC game porting console, or will we finally get the love and respect from the otherwise disassociated community of hardcore KBM-ers we rightfully deserve?
