Crytek Shows Us Its Warface
The first details are in on Crytek's next project – an online military FPS called Warface. Developed with CryEngine 3, the game is headed to PC and is targeting the free-to-play Asian market.
"Warface provides gamers with a constantly updated extensive PVE universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions," says the Press Release, adding that class-based PVP will also be included.
Warface is being co-developed by Crytek Seoul. "Our passion is to always deliver the best gaming experience possible," said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli. "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."
Sounds like Crytek are trying to cut out a slice of the online Asian shooter market before Activision realises it's Call of Duty plans for the territory. The developer is about to prove it's multiplayer chops with Crysis 2. The news of an office in Seoul shouldn't come as much surprise to gamers – earlier this year, Yerli hinted at some of Crytek's clandestine business operations around the world.
No word on if Warface is coming to other territories but we'll ask Crytek. Check out the screens below.
