The next phase of World War 3 is coming. Get ready to fire the first shots when the Closed Beta Test (CBT) launches for PC on November 25

Once deployed, the CBT will remain active until the planned launch of the Open Beta Test (OBT) in March 2022, when World War 3 will change to a free-to-play model. You can secure your CBT access by purchasing a range of CBT Packs today, which also contain special gear and items which will be available in the OBT.

The Closed Beta Test will extend the battlefield to any players who purchase a CBT Pack or receive a Veteran Pack. Four maps will be playable across two different modes: Tactical Ops and Deathmatch. Players can fight on the battlefields of Berlin, Warsaw, Polyarny, and Moscow, and a range of customization options will also be available, with samples of realistic gear and weapons available for players to adapt their loadouts.

Five different CBT Packs are now available via the official World War 3 website (coming soon to Steam), including the Private Pack, Sergeant Pack, Lieutenant Pack, and Major Pack. Each Pack guarantees access to the CBT, and also includes a range of awesome in-game content available from the OBT onwards, including Battle Passes, weapon skins, character and vehicle blueprints, operators, and much more. Available exclusively to one big spender, the prestigious President Pack promises a real-life Ronin Helmet, the chance to see your hometown and likeness immortalized in World War 3, plus a starring role in your own movie!

The CBT will remain active and accessible to eligible players until the start of the Open Beta Test, which has a targeted launch date of March 2022. Starting with the OBT, World War 3 will become a free-to-play experience, giving players across the world the chance to hit the battlefield without limits. 

We know that many players purchased World War 3 when it was previously available in Early Access. As thanks for your incredible support, we’re delighted to offer a free Veteran Pack to all players who purchased the game before October 4, 2021! Credited directly to your game account on Steam, you'll receive guaranteed CBT access plus exclusive gear (available in the OBT) to show off your veterancy on the battlefield.

With World War 3, The Farm 51 is dedicated to bringing players an unparalleled first-person shooter experience, having spent the last year revamping existing content and adding new features. Improved gunplay, animations, and many more improvements, realistic maps, an extensive set of customization options, and a vast array of incredibly detailed uniforms are ready for players to experience when the CBT launches later this year.
