The Farm 51 and MY.Games announced tests of the refreshed version of the multiplayer shooter World War 3. They will begin on September 30 and will last until October 4.
During these few days, players will run the so-called Veteran Alpha Test. As the name suggests, the tests were prepared for veterans of World War 3 and only people who bought the game when it was available in Steam Early Access will gain access.
The test version will enable you to check out two game modes (Tactical Ops and Team Deathmatch) and four maps (Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw and Polarnyj). The developers promise improved shooting and movement mechanics, nicer animations, expanded character customization and many other improvements.
As you may remember, World War 3 went on sale in early access in October 2018. The game recorded a successful debut, but technical issues led it to quickly lose players. Subsequent updates failed to reverse this trend. The developers were forced to shut down regional servers, and eventually the project was pulled from sale on Steam.
However, the lack of possibility to purchase the game was the result of positive changes around the project. The Farm 51 established cooperation with MY.GAMES, which provided the devs with the funds needed for a thorough refresh of the project. World War 3 was therefore removed from distribution only until the announced changes are implemented.
For now, we do not know when WW3 will be back on sale. The announcement of alpha testing for veterans, however, shows that that day is approaching.
