War Thunder: Now Available for Linux

The famous video game World of Tanks, which many Linux users will have run on their machines thanks to the WINE project due to the lack of a native version for Linux, now has tough competition and is called War Thunder. So you will no longer have to depend on WINE, since his brother is coming strong.

Gaijin Entertainment is in charge of creating this video game. War Thunder was available for Windows, Mac OS X and Play Station 4, but now Linux is added to the list. For those who do not know it, it is a combat video game air and land. It is realistic and its playability is very good.

The war history of the game is recreated in World War II and the Korean war. The user will be able to choose the side, with a list among which are the United Kingdom, Soviet Union, United States, Germany and Japan.

For those interested, you can find it at Steam, but it is only available for 64 bit Linux and not for the 32 versions. From the link that I leave you, if you go down on Valve's Steam page, you will be able to see a label that says "War Thunder is now available on Linux!" if you click there, it redirects you to another page and then you must click on the link "Download game" and the tarball will be downloaded.

    Thanks for the warning. I've been playing it for days since the tarball, but they hadn't included it on Steam yet. The truth is that it is quite entertaining, but I still do not clarify with the improvements of the tanks
