The Farm 51 and MY.GAMES are working together to ensure that World War 3 is an authentic, engaging, fun experience for new and established players alike. As part of this commitment, we recently announced plans to remove the game from Steam in order to fully focus our development efforts outside of a live environment.
From August 13, World War 3 will no longer be available to purchase from Steam. If you already own World War 3 on Steam, the servers will remain open and you will be able to keep playing as normal.
To everyone who has supported World War 3 to date: thank you! With the support of MY.GAMES, The Farm 51 is actively developing and implementing major changes to gameplay, graphics, sound, performance and stability, and other game mechanics. World War 3 will be available in the future in a new, improved form, and we can’t wait to share what we’re working on with you.
If you want to know more about the partnership between The Farm 51 and MY.GAMES, check out our recent AMA. Stay tuned to the official World War 3 Discord channel and social networks for future updates, and be sure to join the discussion in our forums!
When will World War 3 be removed from sale on Steam?
World War 3 will be removed from sale on Steam on August 13th 2020.
I already purchased World War 3 on Steam, will I still be able to play it?
If you already own the Early Access version of World War 3 on Steam, you will be able to play it indefinitely. The servers will remain open, and you can play as normal.
Can we expect any updates before Early Access ends and World War 3 is released?
Some improvements and new features may be released for current World War 3 players to test and try out. This may not happen immediately, as we do not wish to share unfinished content.
If people purchased the Early Access version of World War 3 on Steam, will they receive anything when the game switches to a free-to-play model?
Early Access players will be recognised as ‘veterans’ and receive in-game content worth at least the price they paid for World War 3, if not more, regardless of our distribution model. Any in-game purchases made during the Early Access period will either be transferred to the final release or compensated as in-game currency.
