Conflict of Nations: World War 3 is a popular free browser strategy game that has recently exploded in popularity so much that the game is now available on Steam, Android, and iOS devices.

Its complex nature is believed to be one of the core reasons behind the success that Dorado Games have seen with Conflict of Nations. In this 21st century political and military simulator, you will get to see different battlefield technologies, terrorist insurgencies, and weapons for mass destruction, which can all be strategically used for maximum impact.

If you’re into games like Hearts of Iron 4 or any Paradox, you’ll definitely enjoy all the little details that this game has to offer.

One really important feature that this game hosts that cannot be found anywhere else is the fact that one game with a nation can last for days, weeks, or even months. This is mainly because all troops move at real-life speed. It could take you a whole day to get your troops to the front line, which is quite interesting and gives players many opportunities to micro-manage and think through every single decision that they are about to make.

Aside from the great level of complexity that comes with playing Conflict of Nations, you will simultaneously be able to enjoy a fantastic user interface, graphics, and a variety of in-game purchases to improve your chances of domination.

As you get into the main menu, you get to choose a lobby to play in and select a country to control. Once all the countries have been chosen by all the 100 players, you will enter a game and begin managing your state.

You will receive a large number of initial resources that you’ll have to use for various building constructions, troop recruitment, or weapons manufacturing. You have diplomacy mechanics that you can use to either make allies or declare the inevitable war.

The way to win is by getting the most Victory Points, which represent important cities on the map.

Your main controls will be executed through the mouse, making Conflict of Nations more of a point-and-click browser game.

You will spend most of the time constructing different aspects of your state so you can become the economic powerhouse of the game. This will help you to be able to dominate every other country on the map.

Once you have reached a number of Victory Points, the game ends. One truly great aspect of this game is that you don’t need to play and be victorious alone. You can team up with other countries and join forces in order to eliminate all of your enemies.

To give yourself a little boost, you can also take advantage of in-game purchases. With real-life cash, you can exchange that for gold, which is the most valuable currency in the game. Using gold, you can speed up in-game research, constructions, heal your army while idle, and even analyze your enemies fighting power.

Game Modes

When it comes to game modes, there are four main maps that you can play on.

World War III

The first game mode is WW3. This is the main campaign, which most players play. The map for this game mode is based on the world today. There are a total of 64 player-controller countries and a number of AI-controller territories. The goal here is to slowly but surely establish your dominance as a nation and stand above all.

Rising Tides

Next up we have the Rising Tides map, which is a special campaign that simulates a world in chaos that is living in a radioactive wasteland. The cities are in special protected zones, named Complexes and the seas are higher, giving players more ways to exploit the seas. The Complexes are inside Radiation Domes which charge every day, and once charged, they give you 50 Victory Points and special defences against nuclear and chemical attacks. They also protect the cities from environmental issues and enemy damage. Unfortunately, Complexes are already built structures that cannot be built by the players.

Blood and Oil

Blood and Oil is another popular one that has a focus on the Middle East and has a limit of 50 countries. It also has a focus on collecting oil refineries, which represent the Victory Points.

In this game mode, you will have intense battles with the terrorists, also known as the Caliphate in this campaign. They have big anti player bonuses and are ready to make your world conquest a whole lot harder.


And finally, we have Overkill, which happens to be the epitome of chaos. It is advertised as complete chaos as everyone is at war with each other. The countries have gained great strength and the coalition sizes have been brought to three. The number of combatants is still set at the same amount from the classic WW3 mode and the number of strategic sites is 12.

Final Word

Conflict of Nations provides a gaming experience that cannot be found in any other game out there. Through a combination of fantastic graphics, interface, complexity, strategy, and real-time game development, millions of players all over the world have found an appreciation for the uniqueness of the game.

Though you can enjoy every bit of the game without spending real-life cash, for those that want to be a step ahead and reign supremacy, you can convert real money into in-game gold.
