MY.GAMES AND THE FARM 51 PARTNER ON DEVELOPMENT OF WORLD WAR 3
New partnership enables experienced Polish developer to expand their creative plans for online multiplayer military shooter
Global publisher MY.GAMES and Poland-based developer The Farm 51 are proud to reveal their brand-new publishing and development partnership on the multiplayer military shooter World War 3. The collaboration gives The Farm 51 the necessary resources and expertise to expand the scale of their upcoming title while retaining creative control and vision. Set amidst a modern global conflict, World War 3 emphasizes teamwork as players wage war in tactical online firefights. Maps are based on real-world locations, and The Farm 51 is also working with military experts to produce an authentic, visceral combat experience featuring ballistics, armor simulation, an arsenal of weapons, and global consequences for players’ battles.
“We are happy to announce the partnership with MY.GAMES and benefit from their wealth of experience in publishing multiplayer shooters,” said Kamil Bilczynski, Creative Director and Co-Founder of The Farm 51. “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.”
The Early Access version of World War 3 will soon be made unavailable to purchase from Steam until further release details are revealed later this year. Players who have already purchased World War 3 will be able to continue playing unimpeded, with veteran status and valuable in-game cosmetics being rewarded to early access players upon the game’s release. The Farm 51 is still actively developing World War 3 and implementing player feedback during its early access period, while also preparing the game for release.
“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,” said Alexey Izotov, Head of Global Operations at MY.GAMES.
New features coming to the game throughout 2020 include 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 customization, and expansive tutorials to help new players. The Farm 51 is also committed to developing more game modes - including a mode chosen by the community - alongside new maps, streaks, weapons, cosmetics, and a greater range of character voice-overs and language options.
