As DICE continues to alternate between the 20th century and Star Wars, WORLD WAR 3 (their caps, not mine) wants to bring multiplayer shooting back to the modern era. By Polish studio The Farm 51, it’s coming to Steam later this year.

DISCUSSION

When I saw the lede image as a thumbnail, I initially thought I was looking at a new Gears of War.

...that’s not great in terms of branding for DICE (initial consumer confusion).

Edit: I see I misread the article stub, and it’s The Farm 51 publishing this effort, not DICE. Props to Symbolsix for catching my error.
