'World War 3' Will Be Free To Play This Coming Weekend - Trailer

by Rainier on June 17, 2019 @ 8:48 a.m. PDT

World War 3 is a multiplayer FPS set in a global military conflict taking place in the third decade of the 21st century.

Strong teamplay, national armed forces, real locations, full body awareness, and a versatile customization system all contribute to the authenticity of the modern combat experience enhanced by other essential elements such as a robust ballistic system, advanced armors and life-like weapons.

Join the fight in massive, 64-player infantry battles, gain advantage over the enemy with personalized weapons, vehicles and drones.

Produced in cooperation with military R&D centers and consultants, World War 3 shows the consequences of every battle in the context of a global war campaign on a strategic war map. The emphasis is put on offering true-to-life modern battlefield, and combat focused on teamwork. We aim at offering authentic tactical combat operations in an unpredictable theater of war, striving for top playability and an authentic experience.

World War 3 enables you to take part in virtual battles using both infantry and military vehicles, allowing the player to choose soldiers from all over the world, including the Polish Armed Forces.

For the past couple of weeks the community has been very vocal about the need for an opportunity to play World War 3 and The Farm 51 are excited to share that players who have been waiting can officially jump in free for the first time this weekend. After the successful release of the Warzone Giga-Patch, The Farm 51 feels now is the time to let everyone in on a bit of fun and show the full scope of changes that have happened between World War 3's launch into Early Access and now!

Everyone that has wanted to try World War 3 is invited to join in. Between June 20-23 players will have the full catalogue of weapons, strikes, gadgets and equipment at their disposal and will get a chance to play on one of the newest maps, Polyarny, in it’s Warzone variant.

What will you get in a Free Weekend?

We’ve decided to go with one map only for a few reasons, the main one being that this is our first Free Weekend on steam in company history and we don’t want to screw this up! It’s easier for us to predict server usage and how to spool up additional machines easier if we only have one map setting. This is the first time we’re doing a Free Weekend and we want to make it as best as possible – and this means reducing things that could go wrong.

We want to give all players around the world an opportunity to try a World War 3 and judge the game and progress which we made since launch – in terms of gameplay, optimization and other improvements – we’re still here and going strong with updates and changes. Making the game free for some time also lets players that are undecided try it and form their opinions. Additional feedback we’re going to get is also potentially something very useful for us now and in the future. And speaking of the future – we plan to repeat Free Weekends from time to time – to present the project progress and invite more people to the game.

The Farm 51 also want to beckon soldiers who have been waiting for the perfect moment to strike as World War 3 will be for a 40% discount until June 24th! Check out the game HERE.

We’ve also got a few surprises for this event – one new weapon, new equipment you can take with you and a vehicle among other improvements and additions.

A glimpse at the roadmap reveals that the developers are working on implementing: 

  • an Unreal Engine 4 upgrade (as well as adding some content improvements features)
  • Improvement of the movement system for much more smooth gameplay and movement feeling, with better vaulting and stance changes along with camera smoothing.
  • Launch of Recon: a true tactical-royale game mode and major new content and features update.

In addition to an intense PvP gameplay and state-of-the-art, realistic graphics, World War 3  also serves as a source of new ideas for the online shooters genre. The game’s authors will propose innovative mechanisms related to the interaction between players, monetization, teamwork and strategic planning. The game will also offer many solutions influenced by real warfare, and the modern arms industry – something that you will not find in the genre nowadays.

World War 3’s Warzone game mode features large-scale combined arms battles with infantry, armored vehicles and drones; its Recon mode features a fresh approach to the battle royale genre. Strong teamplay, national armed forces, real locations, full body awareness, and a versatile customization system all contribute to the authenticity of the modern combat experience enhanced by other essential elements such as a robust ballistic system, advanced armors and life-like weapons. Produced in cooperation with military R&D centers and consultants, World War 3 shows the consequences of every battle in the context of a global war campaign on a strategic war map. During the Early Access stage, the game will be available at a soft price.

World War 3’s gameplay will not be limited to dynamic firefights. The key to victory will lie in teamwork and smart strategic planning.

While working on World War 3, The Farm 51 is cooperating with top military centers, strategic center experts, and special forces veterans (GROM, SAS, SEALs, etc.). We are an official partner of key companies from the Polish arms manufacturing industry, including Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ) and Centrum Symulacji OBRUM.

Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa is the biggest player in the Polish arms industry, and a key partner in the modernization plan for the Polish Armed Forces spanning the years 2013–2022. OBRUM has long been the leading R&D center in the area of broadly taken defense technologies. It is spearheading the scientific and technological development of the Polish arms industry.

The Farm 51 is cooperating with those organizations in the area of advanced combat and training simulators that greatly improve the soldiers’ abilities and efficiency on the battlefield, while minimizing training costs.

Key Features:

  • Warzone and Recon – a complete package: World War 3 presents a modern conflict with tactics, techniques and procedures inspired by true combat engagements. Warzone offers opportunities for dynamic, intense firefights in teamwork-focused battles of infantry and armored units over fortified points. The tactically-oriented Recon allows players to cooperate within small reconnaissance squads left on their own to survive and capture high-value targets in hostile territory. Together these modes create a coherent gameplay experience aimed at presenting the actual feel of modern warfare.
  • True combat experience: The most authentic bullet vs. armor system in the FPS genre to date, achieved through years of research and development with military professionals. Ballistics, a weight system, full body awareness, vehicle physics, and an extensive customization system all affect the gameplay in a meaningful way.
  • Strong teamplay: World War 3 supports team-based gameplay rewarding the initiative in playing as a part of a squad. Responsible cooperation within a squad is the best recipe for combat effectiveness. Players can choose between assuming the role of an Attacker or a Defender, and use any gear available to support their playstyle – what matters is the victory.
  • Strategic war map: To show the consequences of every battle, player performance is rewarded with resources used to conquer or defend a territory, gain additional bonuses via the metagame and turn the tide of war. Every destroyed vehicle, every kill, every bullet fired, every achievement affects the big picture presented on a constantly evolving, interactive war map eventually covering the entire planet.
  • National pride: World War 3 is heavily grounded in military realism, offering accurate depictions of weapons, uniforms and equipment of national armed forces inspiring players to make their war effort personal and prove their country is the dominant force on the battlefield. The maps are based on real-life locations such as the streets of Warsaw, Berlin and Moscow (more locations planned) recreated with an unprecedented attention to detail.  
  • Versatile customization: Players are able to personalize every part of their equipment, choosing from hundreds of combinations of unique weapon parts, attachments, skins, camos and paints. The same applies to vehicles and tactical gear and uniforms. If it’s possible in real life, it’s possible in World War 3.
  • No strings attached: No paid loot boxes and pay-to-win approaches to game design. We consider it very important to stay true to the community and deliver the best game we can without resorting to such practices – as players ourselves we believe that the sense of pride and accomplishment should come with no paywall.

World War 3, powered by the latest Unreal Engine 4, is currently under development for PC by an international team of experts, with active participation of experts from arms manufacturing companies, and real military units.
