World of Planes Expands Beyond Aviation. Becomes War Thunder.

Gaijin Entertainment announced a radical change of direction for their upcoming MMO World of Planes. The title has been changed to War Thunder: World of Planes.

The reason for the change is simple and definitely exciting: according to the developer “The massive historical battles featured in War Thunder cannot be fought with aviation alone—World of Planes is only the beginning.”

I still remember the awesome battles involving air, sea and ground units in the old glorious Aces High. If this is the direction War Thunder is going, color me interested.

The official website has been radically updated to reflect the change. You can find it here.
