Gaijin Entertainment has announced that War Thunder on PS4 will have its world premiere at Gamescom in Cologne this week.

Creative director at Gaijin Entertainment Kirill Yudintsev had this to say: “Sony has been a great partner in bringing War Thunder to PS4, and we are excited to show the console version for the first time this year at Gamescom.”

He continued, “We have harnessed the power of the PS4 to deliver cutting-edge graphics, cross platform battles with PC players, intelligent personalization and deeply integrated social capabilities to appeal to seasoned players and PlayStation enthusiasts alike.”

War Thunder is a World War II massively multiplayer online combat flight simulator that is currently in open beta on PC. It has had over three million users since November last year.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    This game is actually great fun, so that it’s coming to the PS4 is thumbs up for me. And that one can play against/with PC players is really cool.

    Now, consoles are fighting for PC MMO’s. That is just hilarious.

    World Of tanks on the Xbox, War Of thunder on PS4. War continues. LOL Can consoles have “Something” at least original?

    @3 Why it needs to be a fight???? I don’t understand your point. Reaching and deliver a game to a bigger public is a bad thing?

    Actually this is very good news. This game is amazing, and unlike free to play shooters, being able to play with PC players is really great news, since is a more balanced game between keyboard mouse vs controller.

    @5 In arcade battles sure… it’ll be balanced, but i’ll be suprised if they manage to put Historical and Real Histocial battle modes in the PS4 versions. Just check out the key layout for RHBs.

    Why not just mix these free to play PC games all together so both nextgen consoles and PC’s can battle each other. They could call it Thunder Tank World.

    Actually thinking about that, that would be kind of cool. PS4 clans versus Xbone clans…only to get wiped by the keyboard and mouse wielding PC clan.
