Gaijin Entertainment released a new update to its online game War Thunder, numbered 1.69.

The update is title d”Regia Aeronautica,” after the Italian royal air force in World War II, which has been added as a new faction with 35 planes of its own, and they’re some of the most beautiful designed in that period.

Four other nations are also getting new planes and tanks, while smoke shells, smokescreens and three new maps have been added.

As a cherry on top, PS4 players get to enjoy PS4 Pro support, which adds 4K resolution.

You can check out a trailer, and a second video featuring the Regia Aeronautica below. Those who are Italian like me possibly won’t miss the irony of hearing “Cazzarola!” used in a game trailer most probably for the first time.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
