The Polish response to Battlefield?
Even if the restart would not be so soon after the release of Battlefield 2042, World War 3 would remind Battlefield. With a modern war setting, large maps, many modifiable weapons and vehicles such as tanks, the game strongly oriented to the competition from DICE.
How does the game play Up to 40 players can compete against each other into two game modes:
In mode Tactical operations two teams must conquer control points of each 20 players.
In the classic Team Deathwatch teams compete with 10 players against each other. The aim here is to collect faster than the opposing team more kills.
Already on the mode Tactical operations, the similarities with Battlefield are clearly visible. This mode is reminiscent of conquest from the Battlefield series.
But the Battlefield games not only serve as inspiration for the game: The loadout menu reminds appearance and content strongly to Call of Duty. Also, a mechanism which is reminiscent of the Kill streaks from Cod is present in the game.
