Crytek is still determined to make the entire jump to a free-to-play model while still delivering a AAA experience, and one of its early successes is the first-person shooter Warface. The company intends to gauge the game’s success to determine if it’s ready for a total change or not.
Crytek Kiev originally had intended for the game to be a foreign success in China and Europe, but closed beta testing has gone on all year, and Crytek is ready to make this an American hit as well when it launches for the Xbox 360 in 2014.
An American PC release will be available later this year, and sign ups are available now on the game’s official site.
Another online first-person modern warfighter series is not exactly what the industry needs right now, but Warface has an extra layer of attraction due to it supporting the CryEngine 3 while still being a browser game. Could this be the one that proves AAA is possible on free-to-play?
Looks promising enough to warrant a try. Let us know if you are interested below.
