Everybody’s welcome, but you do need to sign up to gain access. Head over to www.warface.com/xbox and fill out your details, then play the waiting game until you’re allowed in.
Warface is a class-based shooter from Crytek, and is shaping up to be a pretty nifty little thing. Powered, predictably, by the CryEngine, you’re thrown into the (near) future and sent into battle against the ruthless Blackwood military. Pick your class – Rifleman, Medic, Engineer or Sniper – and find out which collection of tactics, weaponry and gameplay styles suits you.
This beta test is just a taste – after launch, Warface will be regularly updated with new maps, weapons and boosts, and even daily co-op campaign missions.
While Warface came out late last year for PC, if you want it on console, you’ve only got one choice: This one’s an Xbox 360 exclusive, and will be free-to-play with Gold. The full game is set to launch a little later this year.
