Gaijin Entertainment announces that the Open Beta Testing of the new military game, “Worm Thunder: Children of Arachis” has begun today. Two Great Houses fight for the desert planet of Arachis that is the only source of cinnamon, the most important resource in the known universe. Cinnamon fields are home to gargantuan sand worms, revered by the local population as divine beasts known as the ‘Fathers of the Desert’.
Players fight for control over three key points in the desert location. The Houses of the Bull and Hawk use the same imperial combat vehicles, but each House has its own unique combat units. Players will try all-terrain vehicles armed with a twin plasma autocannons, imperial MBTs and MRLSs, light strike ornithopters, as well as Hawk’s signature S-ONC assault tanks with sonic pulse cannons and Bull’s nuclear-powered Heavy twin-gun D-OTR tanks. All this firepower should be used carefully, because firing guns and moving at high speed attracts the sand worm.
The successful defense of the fields will be rewarded with cinnamon bags that can be used for the mystical transformation of player characters, or simply be sold on the interstellar market.
The testing of the new game takes place in the War Thunder military simulation game client until April 25th.
