The Farm 51's WORLD WAR 3 Has Found Publisher; Full Version of Online Shooter Will Debut “Soon"
The Farm 51 has good news for fans of World War 3 — the Polish game developer's answer to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Insurgency: Sandstorm — as the multiplayer shooter's full version will be released in the near future. That's right, the Battlefield-esque FPS will finally leave early access "soon."
To make it happen, The Farm 51 has partnered with MY.GAMES, the Russian publisher responsible for Warface and Skyforge. Although neither company has revealed World War 3's concrete launch date, the title will debut on PC sometime this year (the developer's original plan was to release the game in Q2 2020).
"We are happy to announce the partnership with MY.GAMES and benefit from their wealth of experience in publishing multiplayer shooters,” Creative Director Kamil Bilczynski said in a press release. “Our collaboration with MY.GAMES ensures that we can take a truly global approach to publishing World War 3, while remaining faithful to our original vision for the game as we work to enhance its core gameplay, polish mechanics, and push the boundaries of the overall scale of the project."
"World War 3 is a game with enormous potential, and we believe that our partnership with The Farm 51 will allow it to become one of the best large-scale online military shooters on the market," Head of Global Operations at MY.GAMES Alexey Izotov added.
According to The Farm 51, "a new Asian theatre of war, an enhanced movement system, streamlined updates to existing maps, brand-new UI and HUDs, player progression systems, further weapon customisation, and expansive tutorials to help new players" will come to World War 3 throughout 2020.
As a reminder, World War 3 is not the only video game in the works at The Farm 51, as the Gliwice-based studio's open-world survival Chernobylite will receive its next major content update later this week.
World War 3 is a multiplayer military FPS set in a modern, global conflict. 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.
World War 3 is currently available on Steam Early Access.
