War Thunder Wins "Best Simulation" at Gamescom
War Thunder, the military-themed MMO from Gaijin Entertainment, had an impressive showing at this year's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. So impressive, in fact, that they brought home an award. That's right, War Thunder was awarded "Best Simulation" at Gamescom 2013.
For the uninitiated, War Thunder is a World War II-era combat MMO "that combines unparalleled online gameplay experiences that places players into action filled, highly explosive World War II aerial battles or mobilized over terrain using ground forces." It's sounds kind of like what we'd get if World of Tanks and World of Warplanes had a baby.
Obviously, the folks behind the game were thrilled. Anton Yudintsev, CEO of Gaijin Entertainment, had this to say: “We are blown away to be awarded 'Best Simulation' for War Thunder at Gamescom 2013. The show has been one of the most important events in Gaijin Entertainment’s history. We unveiled the PS4 version to the public and demonstrated the ferocity of tank warfare and our support for Oculus Rift behind closed doors to the selected press. We would also like to thank the thousands of attendees who played through the demo in the Entertainment area and for their fantastic feedback in what is shaping up to be the biggest game in our history.”
War Thunder is in beta for PC and it's been confirmed that it will be making its way over to the PS4 as well.
