Lately, we’ve been getting hit with a lot of free to play titles. I like this. I wrote a while back about how it seems some of the developers and publishers out there have finally pulled their heads from their hindparts and realized that consumers have been getting charged way too much for games, for a very long time.
It’s not that we don’t want to buy games, it’s that paying $60 plus tax is a little painful.
So when I see that Crytek and Trion Worlds are getting ready to release yet another F2P title into the wild – one that looks really good, no less – I get a warm fuzzy feeling in my black little heart and I just have to talk about it.
The game casts players as part of Warface, a select unit of elite warriors that have banded together to fight Blackwood – the ruling brute-force government. In the trailer, which can be seen below, you will quickly recognize the time and effort Trion Worlds and Crytek have put in to the game.
Dirk Metzger, General Manager of Publishing at Crytek had this to say about the game:
“Trion Worlds and Crytek have been working closely to bring Warface to Western players looking for a first-person shooter with striking graphical detail and unsurpassed gameplay – for free. We look forward to making the experience even more engaging as waves of pre-registered players are invited to join the Closed Beta and play their part in shaping Warface ahead of its final launch.”
Of course we will be bringing you more information, videos and gameplay for the game as soon as NDA’s are lifted so make sure you keep checking back in. And check out the trailer below!
