Zeus Would Play It: War Thunder Beta Goes Global

on August 12, 2012 7:01 PM

Sadly, the god of thunder isn’t getting his own MMO. However, War Thunder, a new MMO focused around airborne combat, is shooting into the skies this week with its first global beta.

Sound interesting? The upcoming MMO focuses on key battles from World War II and the Korean Wars, and right now, the beta has opened its arms to global participants. If you’re itching for a real dog fight, you can sign up for the beta here at the official site and, in doing so, potentially get keys for your friends as well.

You can also purchase starter kits to give yourself an extra edge in the sky. Considering how much special editions of games go for these days, War Thunder‘s kits are reasonably priced, with the most expensive one costing $80. Better yet, each and every kit grants access to the global beta along with its other benefits, which include unique planes, campaigns, and more.
