War Thunder’s new sky renders will melt your eyeballs with joy

    
12
Considering how much time War Thunder players spend fighting and flying through the skies, having that horizon look as gorgeous as possible is probably more important than in most games. This week, the team announced that it’s instituted tech to make “the best rendition of the sky that has ever been recreated in video games.” Think this is hyperbole? The article on the new rendering said that it’s photorealistic, performs better, and even shows the stars in their proper place at night.

This new sky and cloud rendering is but the start of a host of changes that came with the game’s latest patch. Ground vehicles can now be camouflaged with bushes and scrub and there are two new Japanese aircraft.

You can check out the eye candy of War Thunder’s new sky after the break! And if you’re tired of tanks, how about sailing vessels? Maybe not. But there’s a tongue-in-cheek April Fools’ Day video for that below too!

Nvm, THIS IS REAL. It’s an event that’s going on for the next 3 days.

It’s pretty bad. Movement and shooting mechanics are very basic and clunky. I’d download it for a game or two, but it’s realllly boring. 
Hopefully this gets more work in the future.

They put actual, paid effort into an April Fools event. Again. God I love Gaijin sometimes.

Damonvile For us WW2 airplane/tank/ship geeks WarThunder is like a wet dream come true, so its natural that we pee our pants whenever they add serious eye candy like this :)

PawnInTheGame Higgens Not necessarily early.  It’s already April 1st in some parts of the world.

Higgens PawnInTheGame They’re a day early. Probably wanted to beat World of Warships to it, in case they also wanted to do a pirate themed April 1st :P But, unless they’re lying, they will have an “open world” feature with PvE later.

IDK how much time and money they spent on these ships, just for an April Fools joke, but the result is a blast. They could spin off a whole new franchise from this, lol. It’s more “arcady” than Naval Action, but it’s fast and fun.
