When Gaijin pushed War Thunder’s “Flaming Arrows” update, they included an aircraft created by a member of the community. The German night interceptor He 219, created by player Daniil “_Joy_Division_” Zaitsev, was officially introduced to the free-to-play game as a part of the update called the player revenue share program. Since then, enough players bought the plane to result in a $5,000 check for Zaitsev.
The Revenue Share system was introduced as a way to allow players to add more content to the game, while working in conjunction with the War Thunder team. It’s a win-win for both players and the company as it introduces more content for the players to enjoy that the devs would likely produce on their own. It also rewards talented individuals in the best way — with cash
The good news is that it appears to have a lot of potential, with Zaitsev’s He 219 selling enough to warrant Gaijin sending a check for $5122 to the player. That’s a pretty good payday.
Creative War Thunder players who are interested in getting in on the action can find out more about the Revenue Share Partner System on the game’s site.
