The development roadmap for World War 3 is meant to provide players with a sense of what’s to come and to reassure them that work will continue throughout the early access period.

We have taken the community feedback to heart and are focused on implementing fixes to the issues players have raised. So far, we have implemented several patches which stabilised the servers, balanced the gameplay, and resolved many issues players have experienced. Going ahead, this will continue to be The Farm 51’s focus in our roadmap.

The starting point of the early access roadmap is the current 0.2 update which is now available and added a new Team Deathmatch mode. The mode features two teams of 10 players each who compete in rounds of fast-paced close-quarters combat within a Warsaw shopping mall during day or night.

The following new content was also added in the 0.2 update:

  • New German vehicle – IFV Boxer
  • New Polish MSBS BP assault rifle
  • New Russian Guerilla uniform
  • Additional soldier customization items
  • Polish language support

  • New progression system
