What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to develop World War 3 based on your feedback. We enter early access with a solid foundation of the game and will be open to all suggestions, design and feature ideas from the community.

Early Access allows people who share our perception on modern FPS games to join the active development of the game, as we release patches and updates based on community feedback.

After Early Access release we want to reveal the Roadmap of the project to show our plans for the coming months of development.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We don't have a definite timeframe yet but we're estimating it'll be something between 12 and 16 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of World War 3 is a solid foundation of the game to be built upon. Throughout Early Access we plan to polish the core game with bug fixes, balance patches and content updates, adding new maps, units, weapons and game modes.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game includes a starting set of maps (3), features & content, with a goal to expand and refine throughout Early Access based on community feedback. Right now our main focus lies on refining and balancing Warzone mode. All aspects of the game are currently being balanced live, with the game still under constant development, so expect regular patches & improvements until we reach full release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. World War 3 will be available for a cheaper price during Early Access with the intent to raise the price at full release. This is to reward and encourage those who invest in World War 3 for the long term during Early Access. All future DLC content will be available for free.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main idea behind entering Early Access was to develop and expand the game basing on community feedback. We aim to be accessible so we encourage people to talk to us directly via our official forums and social media channels. Even if we aren't always responding, we’re reading everything.

Furthermore we want to be transparent with our plans for future development and shortly after ea release we'll reveal the Roadmap of the project.”

Weekly Report #17 - Free Weekend Summary

Available in following languages: PL | RU | DE | FR

Greetings, Soldiers!

This week’s Report is a bit later than normal, but there’s a good reason for it - we wanted to sum up the Free Weekend and to do that - it had to end. We’ve got some cool stats for you as well as our summary of what happened and what we learned.

The most important thing for us was to keep the systems stable and make sure the Master Servers are not slowing down and crashing. This was a resounding success, as there was just a minor incident that rendered one of the login servers inoperable for less than 1 minute at 2:54 am local time on Friday. The automated recovery worked as it should and the system came back without human interference in about 50 seconds.

We’ve had a lot of new players join us in testing the game and making sure we’re doing the right things. We’ve had a lot of new feedback from new players, which is invaluable - while veterans can generally provide better quality bug reports and feedback, new players have a unique perspective on the game that seasoned players can’t have - and that’s very important for us. Thanks to the feedback we got we can now make the new player experience better and make sure more and more players are happy with the game in those critical first few hours of playing.

We’ve also gathered a lot of data, bugreports and we learned a lot about both how the game works with the influx of new players, how our systems work and how to handle the communication on social media, forums and Discord.

Of course, there were some problems, crashes and server instability, but that’s to be expected - we are still far away from release. One very encouraging thing that came out of the negative part of the feedback and comments is this though: in general, our players are happy with the game design and how the game plays - it’s the technical issues that are preventing some people from enjoying the game. And technical issues are a lot easier to fix than core game design.

We’ve learned and tested so much during this Free Weekend, that it’s a no-brainer to do more of them. We don’t know when yet, but for now, let’s take a look at some stats (for a more visual version, check out the image at the end of this Report):

Top daily unique players: 22 411
Avg. daily unique players: 18 350
Peak online: 2 513
Game launches: 170 906
Automated cheater bans: 4
Steam store visits: 4 631 020
Peak Twitch viewers: 1 393

Overall we see this Free Weekend as a big success. We’ve learned a lot, tested a lot, got heaps of feedback and introduced the game to a lot of new players. Even our Steam review score went up for the last 30 days, which means that it’s not only us that think the game is getting better and better.

Now it’s time to get back to work on 0.7 and the Engine Update. This update should improve server stability and performance, reduce stuttering and make the game more stable. We’ve got a lot of cool stuff slated for 0.7, so make sure to check future Weekly Reports for more information.

Thank you for playing with us over the weekend and see you in the next Report!

About This Game

World War 3 is a multiplayer military FPS set in a modern, global conflict. Strong teamplay, national armed forces, real locations, full body awareness and a versatile customization system all contribute to the authenticity of the modern combat experience enhanced by other essential elements such as a robust ballistic system, advanced armors and life-like weapons. Produced in cooperation with military R&D centers and consultants, World War 3 shows the consequences of every battle in the context of a global war campaign on a strategic war map.


Modern Battlefield Experience
World War 3 presents 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 create a coherent gameplay experience aimed at presenting the actual feel of modern warfare.

Real Life Locations
We are proud to give you one of the most realistic levels in the history of FPS. Join the battle on the streets of Warsaw, Berlin and Moscow. Take advantage of the urban environment to surprise enemy forces and dominate the battlefield.

Versatile Customization
Find your own unique combat set fitted to your needs and style without being bound by classes or roles. Choose from hundreds of combinations of unique weapon parts, attachments, skins, camos and paints. Same rules apply to vehicles, tactical gear and uniforms. If it’s possible in real life, it’s possible in World War 3 - simple as that!

National Pride
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.

Strong Teamplay
World War 3 supports team-based gameplay rewarding the initiative in playing as a part of a squad. Responsible cooperation within a squad is the best recipe for combat effectiveness. Players can choose between assuming the role of an Attacker or a Defender, and use any gear available to support their playstyle – what matters is the victory.

Armor vs Projectile
The most authentic bullet vs. armor system in the FPS genre to date, achieved through years of research and development with military professionals. Ballistics, a weight system, full body awareness, vehicle physics, and an extensive customization system all affect the gameplay in a meaningful way.

Strategic War Map
To show consequences of every battle, player performance is rewarded with resources used to conquer or defend a territory. Gain additional bonuses via the metagame and turn the tide of war! Every destroyed vehicle, every kill, every bullet fired, every achievement affects the big picture presented on a constantly evolving, interactive war map eventually covering the entire planet.

Community Driven Development
World War 3 is being developed by competitive gamers who grew up playing FPS games. As an indie studio we strongly believe that community input is crucial in creating enjoyable and memorable games. We want to invite all of you to take part in the common effort of making World War 3 the game you always wanted to play!!
