Just two days after the release of War Thunder on the PlayStation 4 developers Gaijin Entertainment announce that the Ground Forces expansion is now available to download for free on the PS4. Accompanying the Ground Forces expansion is the introduction of cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and PC communities of War Thunder.

War Thunder players are now able to enjoy cross-platform play featuring over 400 historically accurate planes and armored vehicles with hundreds more expected to be added via regular free updates from Gaijin Entertainment.

One of the most exciting elements of cross-platform multiplayer on War Thunder is the ability to form teams of up to 4 players and enjoy the thrill of competitive gameplay alongside exciting cooperative scenarios regardless of platform. PlayStation 4, PC and Mac OS users can group up and enjoy the same content side by side.

CEO of Gaijin
Entertainment Anton Yudintsev commented:

“Our daily efforts have been
recognized by the community and helps to explain why War Thunder has an
audience of more than 7 million players battling to be top gun on our PC
version, and now we’re welcoming PS4 owners to join the fight!
PlayStation 4 has allowed us to create a very beautiful looking game,
which visually, is almost on par with high end gaming PC’s. Also, the
PlayStation®Camera is a very handy device for a flight combat game – it
makes head-tracking possible, which is invaluable in frantic dogfights.”
