Developer The Farm 51 has announced their latest title is due to arrive on Steam Early Access later this year. World War 3 had already been teased last week by a small teaser trailer that you can watch here.
World War 3 will be a multiplayer FPS in a real-world modern setting and a focus on teamwork. It’s looking to be a quite realistic title with full body awareness, robust ballistic systems, and life-like weapons. “The most authentic bullet vs. armor system in the FPS genre to date” is mentioned on the website.
It was also mentioned that World War 3 is being produced in cooperation with military R&D centers and consultants. Every battle’s consequences are shown in the context of a global war campaign on a strategic war map that is apparently changing over time.
Warzone and Recon are two modes that have been confirmed over on the official website.
- Warzone appears to be a similar mode to Battlefield‘s Conquest mode, in which both armored and infantry forces fight over fortified points.
- Recon mode is more tactical with small reconnaissance squads who have been left on their own to survive and to capture assigned targets in hostile areas.
The title is due to have realistic portrayals of real-world military forces, offering accurate depictions of weapons, uniforms, and equipment. Weapons are to be heavily customizable, with unique weapon parts, attachments, skins, camos, and paints. Vehicles, gear, and uniforms are also able to be suited to a players desires.
World War 3 is due for release onto Steam Early Access this fall.
