    The Farm 51 has announced that it is working on a brand new first-person shooter, called World War 3. World War 3 is a multiplayer military FPS set in a modern, global conflict. In order to celebrate this announcement, the team released a teaser trailer that you can watch below.

    World War 3 is said to feature strong teamplay, national armed forces, real locations, full body awareness, and a versatile customization system that will all contribute to the authenticity of the modern combat experience, and will be enhanced by other essential elements such as a robust ballistic system, advanced armors and life-like weapons.

    The game is produced in cooperation with military R&D centers and consultants, and promises to show the consequences of every battle in the context of a global war campaign on a strategic war map.

    Yeah I like when I see PC only for sure. I'm even OK with them going console *AFTER* but it changes everything knowing the game was developed for PC first and console as an afterthought, since it's usually the OPPOSITE 99% of the time.

    Can they even copyright or trademark the phrase "World War 3" ? If another company creates a game with 'world war 3' in the title, the courts will side with 'can't trademark such a generic already widely used phrase'. Of course I'm not a lawyer so I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    I wish the teaser was longer, it looks interesting if the description is accurate.

    The Farm 51 doesn't have a good track record, although their last game Get Even was well received. I'm still interested in seeing some gameplay. Will probably be fully revealed at E3 in the coming weeks.

    Not really familiar with Farm 51 so I did a quick search they are the company behind the Painkiller series which I never tried out.
    I'm sure the entire studio has changed since then.

    No, The Farm 51 was only responsible for the horrible remake Hell & Damnation. Painkiller was originally made by People Can Fly, Adrian Chmielarz' original company before he left and formed The Astronauts.

    Looks exactly like Battlefield 4 to me. I couldn't discern any of that so-called realistic weapon behavior and handling from the video that is supposed to set this title apart.

    No kidding...looks like a BF3/4 clone. Hell, even the maps look extremely similar.

    No shit. Free to play are the most expensive games out there.

    I shiver to think how much I’ve sunk into World Of Warships.

    its about time a game challenged battlefield. if two battlefield style games are competing for the player base, we will get a better game. so many shitty early access games coming out, this one actually looks solid.

    LevelCap came away pretty impressed, from what he described WW3 sounds like the game I expected BF3 and 4 to be.

    Okay, the gunplay looks really good in this video.
    Yes, the more I see and hear about this the more I'm getting interested.

    I am so stoked on this game coming out, was pretty bummed I couldn't buy EA this monday. There was a rumor going around we could buy it in conjunction with the Gamescom release.

    the q and a above has pretty much every answer you can think of.

    Q: How big are the battles going to be? 32vs32?

    A: As big as it's fun to play, but we're currently aiming at 32, 48 and 64 player map variants
