War Thunder’s newly released 1.41 update has moved its tank-centered Ground Forces expansion off the closed beta assembly line and into open beta. Upon logging in, players may choose from their available tanks found in the new Army research tab before queuing up.
The switch to open beta was accompanied by a full progress wipe for those who participated in the Ground Forces closed beta, however all research progress going forward will be permanent. Update 1.41 also added several new aircraft while improving shadow performance and updating War Thunder’s visual effects. A full list of changes can be found in the official changelog.
