War Thunder ‘Cold Steel’ Massive Update Rolls Out


War Thunder, a free-to-play MMO centered around simulating the entire WWII experience, has just been updated today to version 1.51. This new update, titled Cold Steel, has a lot of new content in it, including the first ever snow-covered environment.

War Thunder: Cold Steel brings a massive amount of new vehicles, balance enhancements and a new snow-covered map to explore, and blow up.

The most complete WWII simulator just got more complete. It already has a record in the Guinness Book of World Records  for the number of in-game aircraft you can fly, and now that's getting even harder to surpass. This update has 28 new vehicles for you, including the T-34, Leopard I and even the gorgeous M60 tank.

Finally winter is coming for War Thunder with a map based in Finland. The environment is a very realistic model of an area close to modern day Imatra in Finland. It's a completely frozen hinterland for you to enjoy destroying, or saving. You're pick.

A new game mode is also being introduced, called Enduring Confrontation. This new mode can be played in both the realistic and simulation based battles. What's great is that the only way to win is by completing the victory objective. You'll be able to respawn an unlimited amount of times. Can you imagine how long matches can potentially be?

But there are plenty more enhancements to War Thunder to be had as well. Nearly all the aircraft have small changes in their physics and flight models to make them more easier to control and more realistic. Overall, update 1.51 is helping to reviatallize an already excellent game.
