Interesting indeed, would try

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/05/29/war-thunder-coming-to-ps4-on-june-3rd/

For us in Gaijin Entertainment, this new generation of of gaming is all about experimentation and new business models, and War Thunder is a prime example of this: a cross-platform, free-to-play, massively multiplayer historical combat game.

The most important part is that War Thunder is an online game and it evolves constantly. There were several major updates for the PC version of the game since November, including the launch of the Ground Forces expansion pack. This addition allows players to control armored vehicles such as tanks and anti-air guns which are fighting planes in some of the game modes. This simulates the realities of war where different army branches always supplemented each other in battles.

Our idea was to present PS4 players in North America with the latest version of the game, and today we’re proud to announce that War Thunder is coming out on June 3rd and it includes the Ground Forces expansion from the start! And, of course, all of the other exciting features found in the latest 1.41 version of the game — 350 different planes, squadron battles, 150 different multiplayer missions, and single-player campaigns and scenarios.

It has one of the best F2P models in the world. You can play it for hundreds of hours and never once feel like you had to spend a penny.

It's quite incredible how much content is in the game too.

@Wasdie: Excellent, I'm excited to try it. Just making sure more people know since finalstar didn't particularly highlight it.

On the PC. They ended up delaying the PS4 port until the ground forces expansion was in. That just got patched into the PC version a few weeks ago.

Too bad Sony didn't let them make the game cross-platform, as was initially intended. Then again, Sony probably thought it would be bad PR for them if PC gamers started humiliating PS gamers.

Really? I play it once in a while and thought it was the full game! I must be a terrible beta tester then, they got zero feedback from me lol

Not sure but from the sounds of it this version should already include all updates since they say PS4 has The latest version

I tried it on PC last year. The gamepad controls are beyond terrible. I hope this means, they fixed them.

Well, would explain it. I'm from Europe and pretty sure that it was available at launch along with Warframe.

I immediately stopped playing this game when it would kick me out of game matches if I lost all of my planes. I don't understand how you can get absorbed into this kinda game with so many down times and load times.

I've been playing this game off and on since patch 1.27 and it's turned into a grindfest, greedy cash grab. The game can be a lot of fun but will eventually lead to frustration when you start to become serious about progression; it's at this point that the games flaws become very obvious.

some people definitely had it. I've seen a few streams of it awhile back while scrolling through that app the ps4 has.

I'm unfamiliar with the game, looks pretty good though, and based on some of the comments in this thread it sounds like its a good time. F'n sweet!

If you do, let me know if they fixed the flight controls with the pad.

So did I. Guess it got delayed. What else is new?

Not really into plane warfare combat. World of Tanks looked fun though.

Played a bit of the PS4 version when I downloaded it through a European account, and I wasn't that impressed.

My brother is playing it at the moment.I haven't seen it but it sure as hell looks interesting. Great alternative on consoles is Battlestations Midway / Pacific.
