Gaijin Entertainment has announced a new, tactical submarine combat game in development -Silent Thunder. In clashes between three of the major military powers of the 21st century, players will face off against each other in combat on the world’s most powerful nuclear submarines.
To get a first glimpse of the unique thrill of a three-dimensional, underwater battlefield, realistic submarine physics and the destructive power of atomic weapons, players are invited to join the game’s open test this weekend. Battles are on April 1st from 00:01 am Kamchatka time (UTC +12) to 11:59 pm Hawaiian time (UTC -11). The game will be accessible through the client of War Thunder.
Silent Thunder aims for a completely new vehicular combat experience. Well down below in the darkest depths of the world’s oceans, players will have to navigate and detect enemies using sonar and other detection devices, while trying to stay hidden from the ever watchful eyes of their enemies.
The main weapon used in submarine-to-submarine combat are lethal wire-guided torpedoes, underwater predators that can be controlled by the player from launch until the very moment of impact. But as players chase enemy submarines with their torpedoes, they should not forget that launching a torpedo can reveal the own submarine’s position, making it vulnerable to being attacked.
