Last month, we got some insight into how Gaijin Entertainment was planning to pretty up War Thunder in its next update. Now, that update — 1.77, or Advancing Storm — is live, bringing with it a host of graphical and audio improvements.

Weather effects, lighting, anti-aliasing, and shadows all get the deluxe treatment in War Thunder’s Dagor Engine, even to the point of leaving puddles after a rainstorm. Taking advantage of those new graphical improvements are a few new vehicles: five tanks from the ’70s and ’80s and three planes, including one created by a player via War Thunder’s Revenue Share program.

For more details on War Thunder’s Advancing Storm update, check out the summary or the full list of changes on the website.

  1. There is a lot of old games that are still kicking about that really do need to up there graphics engine & visuals to keep up with the modern paths & expectations.
    That old attitude of its still working & people are still playing, isn’t really a good enough excuse to let it go on & on. I’m not talking about advanced graphics, just a modern day quality dress up.
    I’m glad this game dev see’s that this need, it a must do.
