World War 3 is the next big online game promising no loot boxes, no pay to win elements

The Farm 51, makers of 2017’s Get Even on PS4 / XO, have come up with a modern military shooter for the online multiplayer hardcore gamers who are unsatisfied with mainstream offerings as well as titles that try to be different just for the sake of doing so. Instead, this team of developers who have been playing FPS games since the golden days of titles like Battlefield 1942, Soldier of Fortune, Operation Flashpoint, and the original Rainbow Six have brought the genre back to its roots.

With focus on bullet collision accuracy, claiming the the most authentic gun versus armor system to date, there’s also enhancements being made to the classic skill-based FPS formula. While Get Even sought to bring a cinematic flair to a unique experience with thrilling action elements, World War 3 will instead go head first diving into what makes online shooters great.

Shin Megami Tensei Liberation DX2 still accepting registrations for upcoming closed beta testing

While waiting for Shin Megami Tensei HD (the upcoming PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch title thought to be a remake of the original SMT) revealed recently at Sakura Con to be in development, fans have a chance at participating in Shin Megami Tensei Liberation DX2 for the western audience on Android and iOS platforms this summer.

The Japanese version has already been available for some time, and those who have been using VPN services to play the game have reported it’s an excellent offering for fans of Persona and SMT series, harking back to the Devil Summoner themes of the franchise.

As an added bonus, anyone who signs up and engages in the beta testing period will be able to have their progress carried over into the full game when it releases. Also, upon launch of the worldwide version of Liberation DX2 augmented reality mechanics will be added to the game. Although not limited to this, part of the AR features planned includes summoning demons in the real world.

For those who are new to the franchise, SMT is related to Persona and vice-versa in some tricky ways that are hard to explain. Western crowds haven’t been able to get their hands on the full library of SMT titles, but that may be about to change soon. They are all various RPG games rooted in a unique and fascinating universe in which demons are summoned and utilized in a battle against an impending judgement day dooming mankind. Some of the major plot lines can also be found in the 2013 anime Devil Survivor 2 based on the Nintendo DS title of the same name from the SMT series.

In recent years, SEGA and Atlus have been working together tirelessly on the both SMT and Persona franchises with a 300 person staff for years, and look to bring the DX2 project full-scale this year with English language option, a full-length story mode, and more. For more information check out the Official SMT: Liberation DX2 Facebook Page and if you have a compatible device be sure to to sign up for the Closed Beta which begins in June 2018.
