The company Gaijin Entertainment has done a very nice gift to all fans of their products: War Thunder in Linux, now available for install and play for all fans of this operating system. At the moment games for Linux only on the official website — http://warthunder.ru/. You can also download the game for Windows operating systems and Mac OS (the game will only work on 64 bit systems). Soon the Linux version will be accomodated in the digital distribution service Steam.
However, this is not all pleasantness from Gaijin Entertainment. The official blog posted information about the upcoming release of the 1.45 patch called “Steel generals”. The update promises to install on the web server before the end of the year.
The highlight of the update is that it will bring to War Thunder new American model of military equipment. For example, M4 Sherman bears the name of Civil war General William Sherman, the M26 Pershing is named after John J. Pershing, the hero of the First world war. In total, the game will be added 30 tanks and self-propelled. Of course, in addition to American technology, players will be able to try out the new models released at the time, Soviet and German military industry.
So, in this blog not only to read the profiles 5 models (M2, M16 Halftrack, the M4A1 (76) “Sherman”, M41 Walker Bulldog and M103), but I read about them interesting historical information.
Last month the manufacturer unveiled a new spectacular trailer for the game with live actors. The soundtrack to the video – the song of Anna German “don’t rush”, a converted Russian rock-group “Murakami”.
