War Thunder Gets Improved Visuals With Major New Power Update

Gaijin Entertainment has released the New Power update to War Thunder. It significantly improves graphics, adds dozens of new vehicles and hundreds of gameplay improvements.

  1. War Thunder received a new update on PC - New Power.
  2. It adds new visual effects, planes, tanks and ships.
  3. The title will also hit the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

The New Power update for War Thunder has been released on PC. It introduces long-awaited changes to the graphics engine, adds a dozen or so new flying machines, a similar number of tanks, as well as aircraft carriers and battleships.

War Thunder's engine (Dagor 6.0) has received some visual improvements. Developers boast about the implementation of new visual effects of the sky, clouds of different types, fog and sunlight scattering. The appearance of explosions, projectiles and burning machines has been greatly improved. Traces of bullets hitting objects have also been updated.

The New Power update also introduces 15 new flying machines, including the iconic Harrier, Mitsubishi F-1 and the Soviet Yak-38, as well as 14 new vehicles, including the T-90A tank, highly anticipated by the community. The list of changes also includes 19 new ships, additional maps, rebuilt hangar, mission changes and a huge list of bug fixes and balance changes. For detailed information, please see the enry on developer's website.

War Thunder will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, so we can expect these improvements also on next-gen consoles. Combined with fast data loading, people who switch from PS4 or Xbox One to PS5 (or Xbox Series X|S) will feel a big difference.
