    War Thunder in North America delayed?

    It seems Europe get to download this today but North America has been delayed. Here is a link to their site.. War Thunder info
    Most anticipated 2015: No Man's Sky
    Most anticipated 2016: Star Citizen (PC)
    Want to frag like it's 1999? Have a look at Toxikk on steam. Early access started 1/22/15. It's incredible..

    DOWNLOADING!.....

    Yay for Europe. Of course you can just set up a UK account (just pick a UK address) and download it that way.

    It's like World of Tanks only with planes and stuff. Free to play game with micro transactions (although with WoT I've never purchased any upgrades and have done alright)

    This is from the game's official forum...

    "We’re happy to announce that today War Thunder took flight on PlayStation®4 and is available for download at no cost via the PlayStation® Network in Europe and also Australia and New Zealand. Release date for PS4-version of War Thunder in North America will be announced later."
    Kind of a strange statement. Perhaps they are trying to say it is already in SonyNA's hands.

    EU version is just a beta so could be why the US doesn't have it yet.

    This is one of the games that I am dying to play on the PS4 and I am not too happy that it is delayed for us! I really don't understand why Sony does this with certain games, where the one location gets the game first and the other locations have to suffer...just makes no sense...

    I want this game already, dammit! I've already set aside a couple of all-nights to blow on it.

    Ah, I was wondering what happened to this. Kind of fell under the radar for a while.

    It might just be the few sessions I played, but I suck at this game! Don't get re-spawns, rather (IIRC) it's based on how many planes you have?

    To me, it's a limitation on the time I'll spend to get good at it cos that means having to go back to the "lobby" area and finding a new session.

    Unless I'm doing it wrong and someone wants to set me straight.

    Not wrong, just need to give it a few more tries. Seriously, when we started (my eldest son and I) we sucked ballz (figuratively). Now though we can hold our own. Something you can do if you're struggling is go to the russian planes, there's a great high altitude bomber that's Tier I and easy to unlock and use that for a few goes to bomb AAA and bases. You'll get a crap load of RP.

    To unlock new crews you spend White Lions which are easy to accumulate. Only when you've got about 6 or 7 planes do you need to spend Gold, but given you need to keep all your planes at the same tier more or less (as matchmaking is always with the highest tier for the nation you're flying) I just keep replacing old planes in my list with new ones instead of expanding past 6 crews per nation.

    Seriously it's great fun - give it another go

    I've found this game really easy to play but it's sooooooooooooo addictive. Obviously I'm playing with the British though I've unlocked the other countries now. I'm starting to work on my Tier II craft for the British and some of the planes in there I really want to fly, but so glad I get to fly the Hurricane in Tier I, that plane is so smooth in the air.

    As for the NA release, I would imagine it's to do with potential copyright issues and in this game there's a shed load of potential issues with that. It's not an issue on the PC as it's not owned by any one company.

    The Russian aircraft are awesome. They're not turn fighters but they tear up anything in their sights. The Tier 1 IL-2 is an absolute beast and my son won an honour yesterday for beating a Tier 5 plane in it.

    Maybe I am thinking of Warframe?

    I see you're a Guild Wars 2 vet as well. I got to level 70-something on that and then got a bit bored with it. Did they ever up the level cap?
