Crytek is back, revealing its new FPS: Warface. Unlike the blockbuster Crysis series, this one’s taking a different approach – it will be free-to-play, and it’s focussing on Korea and other Asian markets, rather than heading straight to the West.
Crytek CEO (and President) Cevat Yerli explains:
“Our passion is to always deliver the best gaming experience possible. That’s why we opened our Crytek Seoul office in 2008 which today enables us to offer a game that is tailored to suit its market. We’re excited to debut with Warface in South Korea and to deliver a compelling and truly unique experience soon.”
Warface will use CryEngine 3, and promises to be the developer’s introduction into the “freemium” arena, so keep an eye out for news on microtransactions. You can expect class-based PvP and some “dramatic” multiplayer co-op.
The game is currently in development, and with Crytek Seoul onboard as co-producers, Warface will debut on PC in South Korea in the near future. It is not yet known if it’ll be coming to any other regions, but at this stage it looks unlikely.
