Gaijin Entertainment’s new CGI trailer for War Thunder hits all the right notes. It’s got lifelike CGI, impeccable atmosphere, orchestrated chaos, explosions and slow motion spit. CGI trailers often completely miss the mark in their depiction of actual gameplay, but in the case of Heroes, the trailer does a good job dramatizing what actually occurs in-game. Well, minus all the soldiers running for cover.
The trailer doesn’t seem to coincide with anything in particular, but encompasses Gaijin’s vision of the game, where hosts of aircraft, ground vehicles and naval forces are locked in a full-scale global conflict. War Thunder is said to be adding player controlled tank play in a special “Ground Forces” update in the near future which will move the combat simulator one step closer to that goal.
