Now Playing: World War 3 Early Access Gameplay Livestream

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

The Farm 51 has announced that the first-person shooter World War 3 will release in early access on October 19. The game costs $28 USD to download and play, and you can see it in action in the video above. [Update: The game is now available on Steam.]

World War 3 takes tactical, modern day combat and puts it on a global battlefield. Where Halo is sci-fi, Battlefield has destructive environments, and Call of Duty fantasizes high-speed combat, World War 3 is aiming for a more authentic experience. Your character can't perform superhuman feats and the ballistic system for each gun behaves as it would in the real world. You'll have to be careful and rely on your teammates if you hope to win matches.

Multiplayer matches host 64 players at a time, and the tide of the war will have your team constantly switching between attacking enemy positions, or defending your own. So far, World War 3 has two modes, Warzone and Recon. In Warzone, you travel to real-world locations--like Berlin and Warsaw--to engage in massive battles where your team will need to respond to multiple threats while planning your own attacks. Recon mode is much smaller, tasking squads with securing "high-value targets in hostile territory" where individual decisions have a more immediate impact.

Looks a bit generic to me, not a bad generic, just nothing that really sets it apart from other shooters. Pretty much every niche/role of modern shooters are filled, CoD for arcade (Although it is aging), Battlefield for a more "realism sided arcade", Squad and Insurgency for semi-realism, and ARMA for realism. Not a bad thing to have competitors, but this is just a bit too generic (And lacking in some quality compared to those mentioned).

Could be fun though, don't get me wrong. Not trying to hate on it and I wish them the best as this is still Early Access.

Hm, heard there's like only 10 people play that. A bit overhyped, but folks aren't biting on that. Modern war is too played out. If i have to shoot another AK, i swear i'm gonna puke lol.
