World War 3 is a modern military shooter focusing exclusively on multiplayer, inspired by Battlefield. It's being developed by the polish studio The Farm 51 and powered by Unreal Engine 4.

The game was released as early access title on October 20, 2018 and managed to surpass 10'000 concurrent players. However, the amount of players quickly dropped in following weeks, falling below 1000 players a month later, some of which may be attributed to many bugs present in release version of the game.

On May 25, 2020 it was announced that The Farm 51 will be partnering up with MY.GAMES and halting sales of the game in order to revamp and ultimately relaunch the game.[1]
