FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, Oct. 21, 2013 /CNW/ - Warface, the new
online FPS from Crytek, is now live and playable for free in North
America, Europe and Turkey on GFACE. Players can gain instant access to
the game by signing up at http://www.warface.com.
Warface blends Crytek's trademark quality with instant accessibility,
and can be enjoyed by shooter fans directly in their PC browser. The
game features a wealth of cooperative and competitive game modes, four
distinct soldier classes, and a special emphasis on working as a team.
Constant updates ensure that players can always look forward to a fresh
challenge as they join friends on the frontline.
Dirk Metzger, Crytek's General Manager of Publishing, said: "Our goal
with Warface has always been to show that free-to-play games can be
top-quality, blockbuster experiences that match the industry's highest
standards. By bringing the game to players in North America, Europe and
Turkey today, a vast new audience can now see for themselves the
lengths we've gone to in order to achieve that vision and make Warface
stand out from the crowd."
To provide players everywhere with the best possible gameplay
experience, Warface is localized into English, French, German and
Turkish, with more languages set to follow.
Upon signing up for Warface, players will receive a free account at
Crytek's gaming-centric social hub, GFACE; which also goes live today.
GFACE will act as a gateway to Warface and provide an intuitive
environment in which to chat with fellow players, organize play
sessions, socialize and much more.
To mark today's announcement, Crytek have launched a new Warface trailer
offering an insight into the power struggle between the game's two
rival forces; Warface and Blackwood.
