Have you seen the gameplay trailer for Warface, Crytek’s first entry into the free-to-play multiplayer shooting gallery?
Powered by Crytek’s latest graphics workhorse CryEngine 3, the game is under development by Crytek’s Kiev arm in Russia. But did you know that Warface servers are currently live in that country? As PC Gamer’s article points out, all you need is Google Chrome’s translate feature and a bit of patience to get your multiplayer battle going. Of course, if you happen to speak Russian you shouldn’t have a problem at all.
The game features a class-based multiplayer experience with the familiar classes many FPS fans have enjoyed in games like Battlefield 3. Choose from Rifleman, Engineer, Medic or Sniper in free-for-all deathmath or team deathmatch.
According to Warface’s site the game also includes a “constantly updated extensive PVE universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions.” With a choice between PVP battling and a PVE story-driven mode all wrapped up in Crytek’s gorgeous graphics, this shooter may be a hit with trigger-happy PC gamers.
We’re not too sure when Warface will receive an official Western release, but various media outlets report that the game will open up servers in this hemisphere sometime this year. In the meantime, if you’d prefer to not brave the shaky ping you would probably experience playing the game on Russian servers, you can sign up for the beta and patiently wait for its arrival here.
