War Thunder Upgraded to Masters of the Sea as F2P XBox One Launch Day Arrives
War Thunder is now officially launched as a free-to-play XBox One title. In addition, players can now check into the game to see the new features added with the Masters of the Sea update. Naval Forces are now open to all players, complete with over 80 vessels representing three nations. In addition, helicopters bring a new dynamic to the game.
The anticipated public release of the Naval Forces for all players on PC and consoles is the biggest feature of “Masters of the Sea”, making 85 historically accurate ships from the United States, Germany and the Soviet Union now available to all players. On locations all over the globe, all War Thunder captains can now command a variety of warships, ranging from torpedo boats to cruisers, in challenging sea battles with and against other player-controlled ships and aircraft. While the battle for the high seas is on, a new Naval nation, Great Britain, enters closed testing with 26 ships alone, including the famous Flower-class corvettes - the symbol of victory for Britain. Players that wish to be among the first to try the British fleet can obtain tester access through in-game tasks or by purchasing a British naval pack in the War Thunder store. Development of the Naval Forces mode continues in full swing, with more nations to receive their own ship trees, more ships for existing trees, additional game modes and extended features all planned for future War Thunder content updates.
