, formerly World of Planes
, has been soaring through open beta for several months now. Gaijin Entertainment
decided that it's time to make a few flight adjustments, however, and announced that it has opened up a separate US gaming cluster to improve latency times for North American players.
The developer also let slip that it has begun development on a mobile version of the game for both iOS and Android platforms.
Gaijin said that War Thunder
has attracted 1.5 million active users who have flown a total of 224 million missions since the start of beta. The developer recently put out version 1.29
for the flight sim; the patch makes a number of significant improvements such as four new aircraft, improved damage models, and a new economy.
