Crytek Gets Its Warface on With Free-to-Play Shooter

By Alice O'Connor, Nov 26, 2010 6:00am PST Crysis developer Crytek has announced that it's working on a free-to-play multiplayer shooter for Asian markets, powered by the engine behind Crysis 2. The name of the game? Warface.

No, stop laughing. Co-produced by Crytek Seoul in South Korea, Warface--stop it!--will feature co-op missions as well as your regular class-based PvP play. Free-to-play games are commonplace in many Asian markets, usually supported by microtransactions for premium features and in-game bonuses.

"Our passion is to always deliver the best gaming experience possible," said Crytek president Cebat Yerli in the announcement. "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."

Crytek Seoul managing director Yohan Kim added that the studio is "confident Warface will revolutionize the genre and become the next generation in online FPS."

"Especially dedicated to the Korean and other Asian markets," Warface--honestly now!--is due to debut in South Korea "soon." As for the rest of the world, well, for now we'll have to make do with practising our warfaces in the bathroom mirror.
