World War 3, the Farm 51’s multiplayer shooter, has already passed the 100,000 units mark.
Available only through Steam, World War 3 brings a semi-realistic take on the combined arms combat seen in many Battlefield games.
Though the game’s first couple of days after launch were plauged with connection issues and other problems, things seem to have recovered now.
100,000 is not an insignificant number for a relatively small game, particularly since it reached this milestone in just two days. In the press release announcing the news, the developer apologised to players for the state of the game at launch, though it was pleased with the game’s success.
“This success is truly humbling, and gives us even greater motivation to continue extensive development of the game,” said the developer.
“We are planning to offer a form of in-game compensation for your troubles, with more info coming soon,” promised the Farm 51.
At launch, World War 3 peaked with a bit over 11,000 concurrent players on Steam. Its daily average is now over 5,000, which is respectable, if minuscule compared to Steam’s top ten.
World War 3 will also be at the Warsaw Game Show this weekend, free for attendees to try out.
