Free-to-play flight sim War Thunder launched just days after it launched on PS4, and developer Gaijin Entertainment has been supporting it ever since. The point is that the team knows their way around military aircraft, so the announcement of Ace of Thunder is very exciting.
This new title is a PSVR2 game that will have you flying various WW2-era planes in first person. After playing the virtual reality missions of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown on the original PSVR, we can safely say that it will be a very intense experience. Unlike that game, however, Ace of Thunder seems much more realistic. You’ll be placed in the cockpit of a true-to-life recreation of a military aircraft, and then engage in dogfights in online multiplayer battles.
According to the official description, the game has been “built specifically with the capabilities of the PlayStation VR2 in mind”, so we expect it to take full advantage of the hardware’s bells and whistles. The blurb continues, mentioning various multiplayer modes, “physically accurate” flight and damage models, and “dozens of great planes” to pilot.
There is no release date yet, but you can Wishlist the game on the PS Store Now what do you make of Aces of Thunder? Dive bombs in the comments section below.
