War Thunder might be coming to Xbox One with Xbox One X enhancements sooner rather than later. The game’s arrival on Xbox One is surprising given its prior PC and PlayStation 4 exclusivity, many having assumed it would never make its way to Microsoft’s platform. CannibalChow, the founder of the “War Thunder HQ” club on Xbox One, spotted a listing on the Microsoft Store which provided new details and a possible release date for the game.
War Thunder is Xbox One X Enhanced and features “4K Ultra HD” resolution on Microsoft’s new console. The listing also states that the game should launch on June 1, 2018, but developer Gaijin Entertainment said this was a mistake.
War Thunder is a popular military vehicle combat massively multiplayer online game (MMO). As with many MMOs these days, the game is free-to-play and features cross-platform support. The title brings air, land and sea battles directly to your living room. It also features carefully researched and reconstructed vehicles ranging from the Spanish Civil War to the Cold War period.
War Thunder offers over a thousand playable aircraft, armored vehicles, and ships. American, Soviet, British, German, Italian, Japanese and French military vehicles are represented in the game. The title gets regular updates too, so there’s always fresh content to explore. It’s great to see War Thunder finally make its way to Xbox One, especially after years of demand from the console’s users. Hopefully it’ll find a lot of popularity on the system.
