With War Thunder, developer Gaijin Entertainment has been putting its experience making historical war games into a dream game that combines combat across land, sea, and air. In development for years now, War Thunder still has some way to go before that dream is properly fulfilled, but the next step for the MMO is about to be taken.
For years, War Thunder has offered you the chance to strap yourself into a tank and shoot up other steel monsters from across European conflicts. Or, if you prefer, you could always take to the skies in a warplane, learning how to manoeuvre with the skill of a veteran pilot as you punch holes in the opposition.
But where War Thunder has had a gaping hole for some time now is naval battles. It’s this that is about to get the full service it’s due, but the addition of warships is not ready yet, as more testing is needed to get it right. That’s where our latest giveaway comes in: we’re giving away 1000 keys that grant access to the closed beta for War Thunder’s new fleet-on-fleet battles.
Not only do the codes give you access to the Naval Battles closed beta – which is combined with aviation, and will be running well into October – you’ll also get the ‘Full Ahead’ decal to slap on the ship of your choosing. Oh, and if you need it – here’s a beginner’s guide to War Thunder’s naval battles.
In the beta you’ll be able to start unlocking the ships research tree and the upgrades inside. Three nations have their fleets in the game mode at the moment – USA, Germany, and USSR – with around 60 ships in total, with a focus on faster-paced smaller ships from torpedo boats to light cruisers. There’s a horizontal research system, too, which lets you quickly explore the class of ships you’re most interested in. Even better is that with the upcoming 1.81 update there will be two more locations added for the naval battles – Mediterranean port and Green mountains gulf.
Previously, you could only get access to the closed beta for the fleet mode in War Thunder by putting your money down for one of the early release Naval packs – but now you can just enter our giveaway. Speaking of which, lets get you entered in it – do so by using the widget below.
Every action you complete is worth one entry into the giveaway. The more actions you complete increasing your chances of winning.
We’ll also need your email address so we can send you a code upon winning – we won’t send you spam, we promise. Please read our terms and conditions before you enter.
