War Thunder has received a major update across next gen consoles and PC, with the game running at 4K 60fps on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S. Plus the PC version received DLSS.

War Thunder has also switched to the Dagor 6.0 engine, thus significantly upgrading the game visuals on all platforms. Visual enhancements are the first thing that players will notice in the updated game. The War Thunder engine simulates a natural-looking sky with clouds of various types, fog and the correct distribution and scattering of sunlight.

The game now has the means to draw a realistic sunset on Mars or a nuclear bomb explosion if needed. Shot and explosion effects, as well as fires and vehicle destruction physics are also enhanced. Physically correct armor scars appear on ground vehicles in places where shells hit and in some cases the projectile can even get stuck in the armor.

Additionally, the “New Power” update brings numerous new features, like the interactive hangar or illuminating shells. There is going to be a Battle Pass system as well, allowing players to get prizes for participating in battles and completing daily and seasonal tasks. Rewards include not only cosmetic items, but premium vehicles as well, i.e. US F2G jet and Soviet ?-10? tank. Reward vehicles can be added to a player’s hangar or sold to other players on the market.
