With gamescom 2015 just around the corner, videogame publisher and developer Crytek has confirmed details of what it has in store for attendees of the Cologne-based expo.

Located at booth C40 of the Cologne Exhibition Center’s Hall 7.1, Crytek will be giving players a chance to go hands-on with Arena of Fate. Multiple matches of the fast-paced, 5 vs. 5 MOBA will be running simultaneously on the show floor—enabling visitors to play the part of legendary characters from history and fiction as they battle for victory against fellow fans and the game’s 20-minute time limit. Attendees will also have the opportunity to save their spot in the Arena of Fate Closed Beta and help shape the game ahead of its launch.

Enhancing the action at Crytek’s booth, the latest version of free-to-play shooter Warface will be playable for anyone eager to test their mettle in front-line combat. Players will be able to compete in tense PVP matches which showcase new and improved content scheduled to come to the game in a future update. Since its arrival in 2013, Warface has undergone dramatic changes, with over 30 new maps, hundreds of weapons, and a competitive Clan Challenge league all added to the game.

Throughout the expo—which is open to the public from August 6-9—visitors to the Crytek booth will have the chance to take part in raffles every day and win exclusive prizes and merchandise.
