World War 3 doesn't need a clever name to set it apart from the rest of the shooters out there, because it has plenty that does that for it already. Shacknews sat down with The Farm 51's Kamil Bilczyński, lead designer on the game, to chat about the ambitious shooter and everything it has to offer.

"We want to show what World War 3 in the future could look like if it happened," said Bilczyński of the game, which follows a global conflict as it takes the third worldwide war to Berlin, Moscow, Warsaw, and a variety of other locations.

"It's a first-person experience, so it's much closer to the Battlefield experience," Bilczyński said of what players will be able to expect – it won't be taking its cues from battle royale games like PUBG, if you were curious about where it'll fit in the current state of games.
