Gaijin Entertainment Add Oculus Rift Support To War Thunder

/ 7 years ago


The Oculus Rift virtual reality platform will transport War Thunder players from their chairs and into World War II in full stereoscopic 3D with a 360 degree panoramic view of the battlefield. Whether leaping in the cockpit and taking to the skies to fight to enemies in death defying dogfights, or unleashing hell using ground forces and naval units players will be able to fight simultaneously on the same battlefield in virtual reality thereby creating a full scale immersive World War II theater of war.

“The Oculus Rift is probably the most innovative technological advancement to grace the gaming industry in many years and we are going to take advantage of it. War Thunder is the perfect game for VR because it is in first person and provides an entertaining and intense gaming experience and it deserves to be experienced in stereoscopic 3D with a 360 degree view,” said executive producer of Gaijin Entertainment, Pavel Kulikov.

The PC-version of War Thunder is currently in Open Beta and boasts over 2 million players. In addition to the inclusion of virtual reality to the War Thunder franchise, Gaijin Entertainment is also currently in developing War Thunder for the PlayStation 4 as well as iOS and Android platforms.

Anyone who wants to try out War Thunder‘s exciting and realistic air combat for themselves needs only to register and start playing. By doing so, players will help the developers create the ultimate flight combat MMO. Download War Thunder which is in Open Beta for free from the official website and join in a heated battle to dominate the skies.
