War Thunder, the very popular free-to-play, cross-platform, MMO military now has its own Battle Pass system so dedicated players can earn even more from it.
Just like many other games now do, you can either just continue playing free and earn a few extras here and there or pay a fee to be able to unlock all of it as you play it. The first season of the War Thunder Battle Pass runs from December 2 until February 2021. Gajin said each season of the Battle Pass will have plenty of new and often exclusive content like vehicles, decals, XP boosters, profile icons and much more.
This update also brings with it a Seasonal Challenges system which are "tasks of high complexity" that you can do during battles in the main game modes. Each time you complete one, it gives you a big bonus of progress points on the Battle Pass. You start off with three, and each week a new task will be live.
I have to admit since their Vulkan upgrade, which has dramatically improved the experience on Linux, I am tempted to pick it up to support their work. War Thunder has quickly become a favourite since the big New Power update. Annoyingly though, my account is quite an older one that was originally done through my old PlayStation, which causes problems with purchases needing to be done through Sony - I am tempted to just make a new account directly with Gajin to remove the annoying limit since my progress isn't too far.
