Comparison: Arcade, Realistic, Simulator
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

After countless videos about content featuring the three main game modes in War Thunder - Arcade, Realistic and Simulator - we've realized that we've never actually made a direct comparison between the three in our series. So, in today's video, we'll fix that and have a close look at what sets the three game modes in War Thunder apart from each other.

What's your favourite game mode and why? Do you play only one of the three modes in War Thunder, or do you play all of them? Tell us in the comments and let other pilots and tankers know your tricks for each of them!



The War Thunder Video Tutorials are a series of video guides created to equip the Community with the means necessary to compete on the fierce battlefields of War Thunder. Featuring the crew of the Igromania gaming magazine, they offer a player-focused insight on the game's mechanics, playstyle guides as well as tips and tricks to those who want to master the game. Be sure to check them out and leave your feedback, comments and ideas for future episodes on our forums!
