War Thunder is finally making the jump to PlayStation 4, complete with the Ground Forces expansion, in North America on June 3, developer Gaijin Entertainment has announced.

The historical free-to-play air combat game debut on PC as a beta back in November 2012, before jumping to PlayStation 4 in Europe in November 2013. Now the game will finally join the ranks of PlayStation 4 titles in North America, with the game’s Ground Forces expansion, which adds tanks and anti-air weapons on certain maps, included.

“Our idea was to present PS4 players in North America with the latest version of the game, and today we’re proud to announce that War Thunder is coming out on June 3rd and it includes the Ground Forces expansion from the start,” Alexander Trifonov, Head of PR at Gaijin wrote on the PlayStation Blog. ”And, of course, all of the other exciting features found in the latest 1.41 version of the game — 350 different planes, squadron battles, 150 different multiplayer missions, and single-player campaigns and scenarios.”

The developer also announced that the Ground Forces expansion would be released for the European version of War Thunder on June 5.

Trifonov concluded by teasing “something special” for PlayStation 4 players that will be revealed soon.
