Today saw the announcement of a new update for the vehicular combat MMO War Thunder. The military-themed game has been around for many years - dating all the way back to 2011 -, however, the game was officially announced in 2016. Initially, it launched for the PlayStation 4 and PC but it was later available for the Xbox One as well.
Developed and published by Moscow-based studio Gaijin Entertainment, the current-gen War Thunder is set to receive a new update titled New Power. The content update is slated to roll out in mid-November. According to the game's developer, the upcoming New Power update will add "a new version of the Dagor Engine, blue-water naval power and a lot of other surprises" to the base game.
Aside from the content update announcement, the Russian video game maker also revealed in the teaser that the combat title will release on the PlayStation 5. The news isn't exactly a surprise as an Xbox Series S|X version was just announced about a week ago. While Microsoft's next-gen consoles are scheduled to get the free-to-play title at launch, it is unsure exactly when War Thunder will land on the PS5.
As for the upcoming New Power update, the mid-November release window applies to next-gen in addition to the aforementioned current-gen and PC platforms. More information about the PS5 and Xbox Series S|X variant of War Thunder is likely to be posted on the game's official website in the coming days.
