WELCOME TO WORLD WAR 3
World War 3 is a tactical online first-person shooter developed by The Farm 51. Engage in thrilling, team-based skirmishes on the ground, drive tanks and vehicles, utilize drones to survey the battlefield, and call in tactical strikes for maximum damage. Up to 40 players can battle in two core game modes—Tactical Ops and Team Deathmatch—across a range of stunning, realistic maps. Squad up and take the fight from the streets of Warsaw, Berlin, Moscow, and Polyarny, to the outskirts of Smolensk and beyond!
NEW FEATURES, CHANGES & IMPROVEMENTS
Countless improvements have been made to World War 3 on a technical, visual, audio, and gameplay level. Bugs have been squashed, crashes have been conquered, new features such as Mastery Achievements have been added, and many of the game’s weapons and strikes have been rebalanced in pursuit of a fairer and more competitive gameplay experience. Even if you played World War 3 in a previous testing stage, be sure to check out the Open Beta build and see just how far the game has come!
