War Thunder is getting an upgrade -- both to its engine and its platform. Gaijin Entertainment announced today that the "New Power" update would be coming in mid-November, bringing with it a new version of the game's Dagor Engine, which will make the game look even better on next-gen consoles, which we learned about last week.

You can check out some of the visuals in the trailer below. The updated graphics engine includes DLSS technology support and such granular details as "grass crushed by tank tracks and clouds pierced by fighter planes." Gaijin promises that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game will offer 4K resolution and a "steady 60 FPS refresh rate."

Also coming in this update are "big ships navy," according to the press release, which might refer to the aircraft carriers you can glance in the teaser video. More details will be revealed about the update sometime next month.
