Premature Evaluation: World War 3

My first hour fighting in the grey European battlefields of World War 3 was not the most pleasant introduction I’ve ever had to an online shooter.

Developed by Necrovision studio The Farm 51 and announced back in June, it looks and sounds very much in the vein of Battlefield games past, and enters early access next month on October 19th, sneakily preempting the delayed Battlefield 5.…

The Farm 51 declare World War 3

Such is the state of the political climate that when the words "World War 3 Coming to Steam in 2018" appeared in my inbox this week, my immediate reaction was "Well, I've heard dafter threats of nuclear armageddon." But nah, rather than bombs dropping in response to a Steam review bomb, it's just a new multiplayer first-person shooter from The Farm 51. This time, the…
