First gameplay footage for World War 3 surfaces [off-screen footage]

The Farm 51 has released the first gameplay footage for its upcoming multiplayer military first-person shooter, World War 3. Unfortunately, though, this video shows off-screen gameplay footage and is very short.

World War 3 will be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and will support up to 64 players in a match. The game 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).

World War 3 aims to present a modern conflict with tactics, techniques and procedures inspired by true combat engagements, all of this packed into two exciting game modes. Warzone offers opportunities for dynamic, intense firefights in teamwork-focused battles of infantry and armored units over fortified points. The tactically-oriented Recon allows players to cooperate within small reconnaissance squads left on their own to survive and capture high-value targets in hostile territory. Together these modes aim to create a coherent gameplay experience aimed at presenting the actual feel of modern warfare.

World War 3 is heavily grounded in military realism, offering accurate depictions of weapons, uniforms and equipment of national armed forces. All of it to inspire you to make the war effort personal and prove that your country is the dominant force on the battlefield. All maps are based on real-life locations such as the streets of Warsaw, Berlin and Moscow (more locations planned) recreated with an unprecedented attention to detail.

World War 3 will be present at Gamescom 2018, meaning that we’ll see more about this new Battlefield-inspired shooter during that event. Until then, enjoy this first gameplay footage!
