New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…

Original story (published on December 08, 2021) follows:

In a world where battle royale games are in abundance, some players find solace in online multiplayer tactical shooters such as World War 3. Released in 2018, the game is developed by The Farm 51 and published by MY.GAMES.

The game features several real-world locations where players engage in team-based skirmishes. It also features a large number of weapons, vehicles, and several gadgets that players can use to their advantage.


But like every video game released in recent times, players are affected by bugs such as the one where the party system was not working.

As it turns out, a new bug is making the game unplayable for many. World War 3 players are reporting that they are unable to join matches or load into a map. Some say that the game kicks them out of the round on the loading screen back to the main menu.

This is a really serious issue since a majority of the player base is unable to enjoy the game. Players said they tried verifying the game files and reinstalling the game but nothing seems to work right now.


I saw in the known/fixed issues “Matches not starting from queue” is this the bug that kicks you out of the map loading screen back to the lobby?
I just installed, restarted my game, and I cannot join a match. I like what I see from the menu of the game and I’d really like to see the gameplay potential but I can’t play a match haha. This is happening on TDM and Tactical Ops.

Can’t seem to ever connect to a game of tatical ops i get kicked on the loading map page & then just get intializing interface message. TDM works fine. Is this a known issue?

But since World War 3 is still in closed beta, some said they expected game-breaking bugs like these to pop up. Thankfully, the World War 3 developers said that they are already aware of the issue and are working on a fix.

Hey, we are working on a new fix now, meantime you can try to connect through “Custom Game” and untick some game modes/maps – big chance this can help!

However, there is no ETA on when a fix will be coming for the World War 3 map loading issue right now. We hope the developers are able to resolve the bug as soon as possible.

Also, let us know if the above tip helped you in the comment section below. Rest assured, we will update this article once the developers fix the bug so make sure you keep checking this space for more information.
