War Thunder just received a new update that brings new useful features, including an alarm clock icon that gives you a heads-up if an item is about to expire. Update also fixes a huge issue regarding some obstacles that could hamper the advance of most ground vehicles.

New Features

In most games nowadays, including War Thunder, some items would expire, and others would stay in your inventory until you use them. That said, have you ever been in a situation where you had an item that was about to expire and forgot that it was in your possession? This is a pretty common scenario.

To address this issue, developer Gaijin Entertainment has added an alarm clock icon that will appear on items that only have a few hours left before they expire. This is to tell you to activate or use them soon.

In addition, boosters and personal discounts are marked with a colored box to signify that you only have a short time left to take advantage of them.

Overcoming Obstacles

Obstacle Bug Fixed

Previously, there was a bug that prevented many ground vehicles from overcoming even simple obstacles. Upon investigation, the developers found out that it was due to an incorrect determination of the angle of inclination, specifically of the surface under the vehicle. This has been corrected to reduce the chances of your tanks getting impeded by trenches and other complex objects.
