PlayStation Universe: War Thunder interview - Gaijin talks PS4 launch with console's most action-packed MMO

The following interview was conducted with War Thunder developer Pavel Kulikov who talks to PSU.com about a range of current industry topics while giving readers an insight into Gaijin Entertainment's ambitious flight combat MMO and how it's shaping up for the launch of PlayStation 4.


Rhythn/circus: Interview with producer Pavel Kulikov from Gaijin Entertainment about War Thunder.

War Thunder is a free to play online combat game about non-stop fighting between planes, ships and tanks. The first open beta players have already taken to the skies in massive 16 vs 16 player dogfights. At this year’s Eurogamer expo we caught up with lead developer Pavel Kulikov of Gaijin Entertainment to get some more info:


Thesixthaxis: War Thunder preview at Eurogamer EXPO 2013

War Thunder swept past the 3 million player mark back in July, and is surely pushing ever onwards and upwards in that regard, so with such a wide fan-base already in place, the PlayStation 4 release can only add to and improve upon that. There will be matches readily at hand, and a well established game with experience under its belt and bold plans for the future. I must admit that I do find myself drawn back to the game, as I’m typing this. It might be crushingly difficult in many ways for a beginner like me, but it doesn’t feel like the game has been unfair to me. I’m eager to get more and better planes, nail the control system, and show them all what for.


Videogamesuncovered.com: Eurogamer EXPO War Thunder preview

Overall, War thunder is an amazing experience that brings the past to life once again. The planes in the game feel very hardy and true to realism whilst the environments help immerse players into the era of combat. The free to play model is looking really solid with the promise of more content coming with the PS4 launch and the coming of 2014. If you haven't signed up for the beta already, do so now and be sure to immerse yourself in this truly awe inspiring experience.


16bits.co.uk: Interview with producer Pavel Kulikov from Gaijin Entertainment about War Thunder at Eurogamer EXPO 2013.

At this years Eurogamer Expo I was lucky enough to speak with Pavel Kulkov, Producer of War Thunder which is heading to PS4 for launch day and open beta for PC. We spent 15mins talking about the game and another 10mins playing the latest build on the PS4.


Theaveragegamer.com: Interview with producer Pavel Kulikov from Gaijin Entertainment about War Thunder.

War Thunder is a free-to-play, massively-multiplayer online game set in a World War II environment and featuring non-stop fighting between planes, ships and tanks. Right now we are on PC in beta and will be adding tank gameplay to the game this year and ships next year. We already have 300 planes [in the game]. I think it’s the biggest collection of military World War II airplanes in a game. We have all types: fighters, strike fighters and bombers, like the Lancaster and B17 Flying Fortress.


Dealspwn: First look at War Thunder at Eurogamer EXPO

The scope of Gaijin's ambitions should not be ignored, and it makes sense to deliver the three core sectors of the game one at a time, making sure they've gotten everything right before moving onto the next big focus. So we can expect several hundred planes with fully realised interiors at launch, sweeping across 100,000 km? of battlefield as War Thunder serves up a menu of historically accurate maps and engagements


GGSgamer: Interview with producer Pavel Kulikov from Gaijin Entertainment about War Thunder.

War Thunder was one of the few games that could be played on the Oculus Rift at the Eurogamer Expo and support for the VR headset has already been released in the open beta. Unfortunately I didn’t get the opportunity to try the game on the Oculus Rift but a couple of gamers I were speaking with who did try the game were full of praise for how immersive the experience felt. I look forward to checking out War Thunder in more detail once I get my hands on my PlayStation 4 next month. I’m hoping that with War Thunder being a free game accompanying the launch of a brand new console that this will result it lots of people giving the game a try.


Einfogames: Interview with producer Pavel Kulikov from Gaijin Entertainment about War Thunder.

War Thunder is a game that has been in beta for a good year plus now and it has been well received thus far. The numbers don’t lie, in March over one million had played the game and just four months later three million players had tried out War Thunder. If you haven’t tried it out yet the game is still in open beta. If you don’t have a gaming PC, fear not as War Thunder will be coming to PlayStation 4 as well.


Zomgplay.com: War Thunder Preview ( Eurogamer Expo 2013)

Gaijin Entertainment’s War Thunder may already be available as a public-beta on the PC, however the PS4 version of the game is shaping to be mighty impressive, not to mention after having an in-depth conversation with Pavel Kulikov (producer of the game) it seems War Thunder will be getting some ‘interesting’ new additions that will alter the gameplay and offer it more variety than it already has now. In regards to its current form the visuals and controls felt much more responsive than on the PC and depsite being free-to-play the game will include a variety of planes, all of which can be customised, but more importantly the game will be available from the PS4?s launch day.


PSU.com: War Thunder Hands On Preview ( Eurogamer Expo 2013)

Overall, my time with War Thunder ultimately had me leaving the booth wanting more -- a testament on how amazing this game is. Undoubtedly, War Thunder is one of the PS4's launch titles I am most excited for come November 29.

Everything about this type of game lends itself to large-scale online on land, at sea and carry.

So maybe the baptisms of War Thunder have been somewhat unfortunate, not to say unseemly, but the title in itself has the makings to satisfy even the most core gamers, who may want to try something with more options than World Of Tanks


VGNetwork: Gamescom preview of War Thunder (PS4 version)

Graphically fact War Thunder on Playstation 4 (precisely we are talking about a PS4 dev kits, ed ) is a feast for the eyes.Defined, colorful and decidedly next-gen, especially if we think of a title F2P cross-platform with the PC version. / The sound does its part, with warplanes and tanks, each with recordings of his real sound effects. Why realism and simulation are very dear to Gaijin and - as we shall see in the gameplay - constitute the strength of their game.
