Four-year-old War Thunder launches out of open beta

I know what you’re thinking — didn’t War Thunder launch, like, four years ago? I know we just sang happy birthday back in October. Welcome to the after-effects of the age of soft launches, my friends. Gaijin announced today that War Thunder is finally moving out of open beta.

“[U]pdate 1.65 ‘Way of the Samurai’ marks the release of the originally proposed War Thunder game and ends Open Beta with all current in-game nations featuring their own aircraft and tank trees. The introduction of ships also means that War Thunder now takes the fight to land, air and sea to complement the game. Gaijin Entertainment will continue its commitment to improving the game through regular updates, as they progress toward the research trees of War Thunder Ships, which currently reside in pre-beta testing.”

As you might guess from the title, the Way of the Samurai patch today focuses on the Japanese faction. The studio is promising navies for all nations next year in addition to the already-announced World War mode. And get your Christmas stockings ready: The holiday content rolls out today too.
