The Farm 51’s developers have been answering some community questions about their new multiplayer military first-person shooter on the game’s official Steam forum. According to the developers, World War 3 will be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and will support up to 64 players in a match.
World War 3 will also have its unique Battle Royale mode, called Recon. Recon won’t be like Rush at all as the developers have taken some features of a standard BR mode that fit its gameplay and as a result of that there’s currently no BR game similar to Recon (or at least that’s what the devs claim).
Regarding the game’s vehicles, helicopters may be introduced during early access and Jets will act as support strikes/ score streaks. Jets will act only as a support strikes/scorestreaks and players will not be able to control them. Moreover, The Farm 51 will implement battle drones.
The developers would also love to add a realistic soldier behaviour when injure, however this is really complicated and it will be difficult to have it from the get-go.
Last but not least, the game won’t feature any AI bots, its Warzone mode will be similar to Battlefield’s Conquest mode, and it may receive some mod tools after its launch.
World War 3 comes to Steam Early Access in Fall 2018!
