The latest system requirements News for War Thunder
Full system requirements for War Thunder reported on Sep-01-2013

Only a few days ago a pretty exciting new trailer was released for Gaijin Entertainment's Free-to-Play WWII combat MMO, War Thunder. In it you'll take to the air, land and sea to beat your foes.

The video looked great, and although it didn't contain actual gameplay footage it certainly got our attention. Hopefully the War Thunder System Requirements listed below will give you an idea of how it will look on your PC...

War Thunder Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP SP2

CPU: Pentium 4 2.2GHz or Athlon XP 2200+

RAM: 1GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 7900 GT series or AMD Radeon 1900 series

DX: DirectX 9.0c

HDD: 8 GB Free Hard Drive Space

NET: Broadband Internet connection

War Thunder Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7 

CPU: Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+

RAM: 4GB System Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce 460 or Radeon HD 6850

 

So from the looks of both the minimum and the Recommended War Thunder System Requirements, it's not asking too much from your PC. Obviously at the lower end of the scale it's not going to stack up against what's being shown in the trailers, but it means it'll probably run pretty well on all but the most beaten up rig. The recommended requirements aren't all that high either so it would be interesting to see what would be considered ultra system requirements for War Thunder. Considering it's a Free-to-Play title, there's no reason why you shouldn't give it a go. 

Let us know what you think of War Thunder below. Are you likely to play it now that you've seen the system requirements?

This is a review for reference for people who are interested in playing.
Resolution: 1920 x 1080, V-Sync Off, Graphics at Medium.
Tank FPS: 35+
Aircraft FPS: 75+
And to be honest, medium settings doesn't look bad at all on this game.

When testing tanks and planes, maxed out , the game runs at over 40 fps, while in multiplayer battles the game runs at less than 30 fps, I only disable some options so the game runs at 40 fps in battles :P

you will be able to run this at high settings, with maybe about 60+ fps. however, that is just an estimation, as i don't know for sure.

Funny, cause I installed it last night and I'm getting 30-100 fps in tank battles. My cards are the equivalent to a r9 270x and it gets about the same fps as me.
