Update 1.79 to Bring Combined Arms Battles to Italy

Posted by Suzie Ford on May 23, 2018  | Comments

Update 1.79 to Bring Combined Arms Battles to Italy - War Thunder - MMORPG.com

When the v1.79 update arrives in War Thunder, players will have a new location to explore. Italy will provide players with a combined arms battle arena that is themed on the Reggio Calabria province. Players "will be fighting in and around a quiet Italian settlement" with roads, buildings and homes offering cover and dangerous terrain to explore.

The settlement, which stretches from the southern shoreline to the river on the north, is filled to the brim with colourful and diverse Italian architecture, yet untouched by the destruction of war. However, there is no time to stop by the nearest café to enjoy the atmosphere and a glass of the finest local wine! As with any urban location, the settlement provides good cover and is therefore more suited for traditional head to head engagements of medium and heavy machines. Although hard cover has the benefit of shielding you from incoming fire, it also works both ways when concealing a vehicle. Namely, the narrow streets, apart from the town’s parks and plazas, offer only limited view ranges around your vehicle. This means that you will have to be cautious and rely on communication with your team as well as follow the flow of the battle to make sure you don’t get cut off in enemy territory and end up surprised by an enemy encirclement.
