War Thunder is Getting a Cold Steel Update


Gaijin Entertainment announced a new update for War Thunder. Update 1.51 also called Cold Steel. Cold Steel introduces the first snow covered map for ground forces in Finland. Also found in Cold Steel is Enduring Confrontation game mode, which allows unlimited re spawns until victory conditions are met. 3 new Tanks are also coming to Cold Steel, such as the German Lepord-1, and the Soviet T-10M. Along with the new tanks, 20 more vehicles will be introduced as well for both Air and Ground forces.

Additions to War Thunder’s aircraft roster with a top-up of the TF Mk IV Firebrand, the A-36 Apache – a ground-attack/dive bomber version of the North American P51 Mustang – and Japan’s formidable J2M5 which was build for speed and climb performance and packed a deadly punch to high altitude threats.

Also joining War Thunder with the new update, will be the new Order System.

Gaijin Entertainment will also be adding an Order System to War Thunder. Now any player in Arcade and Realistic battles can also become a commander. At the beginning or during a battle, an “Order” can be activated, allowing players the chance to win a reward for fulfilling the “Order”. Orders can be completed when a player meets the required criteria e.g the “Jack of All Trades” Order. Gamers can strive to be first to destroy three enemy vehicles of different classes: fighter, bomber, attacker, light/medium tank, SPG and AA gun.
