War Thunder

Post by Citizen229 » Sun Jul 29, 2018 10:28 am

Anyone playing this title? Seems to run well being native. The cross platform seems to work well. Cant find any obvious consoles to murder.

My son used to play it regularly without issue until he recently moved out. Far as I could tell it worked very well/looked nice when in play.

So, War Thunder works fine on Linux Mint? That's a great thing to hear as I like to play from time to time, and one of the main reasons why I didn't jump straight away was the fear to have to give up on games or invest in a second computer.

Yes, through Steam. I just fired it up this morning to let steam and the game update. Still working.

It doesn't need to be through steam. You can also download directly from the official WarThunder Website, although I prefer using the Steam version as logging on is easier =)

The Linux version does have a couple of small graphical anomalies, although apparently if your running the latest Nvidia drivers (396 and above I believe) (not the ones available by default to us) then at least one of the more major ones apparently disappears, which is an annoying ground shadow on certain maps that's hard to describe in words.
