Major Warface Update Adds Four New Maps and Much More
Crytek today revealed details of a jam-packed update to the PC version of their free online first-person shooter, Warface, adding fresh maps and gameplay improvements to make the military action more intense than ever.
The update sees the arrival of three all-new Versus maps that further expand the game's popular Nevada setting. The "Airbase" Team Deathmatch map invites soldiers to climb onto the wings of a parked aircraft and trigger the engines to deadly effect, while the new "Quarry" Capture map features sweeping sandstorms that provide perfect cover for ambushes. Finally, the "Streetwars" Team Deathmatch map throws players into an urban jungle where abandoned buildings enable soldiers to carve unexpected paths and strike with the element of surprise.
On top of the three new Nevada levels, the update introduces a fourth new map inspired by Istanbul's famous "Grand Bazaar". With an emphasis on fast-paced action, the Grand Bazaar Team Deathmatch map adds some extra spice to the Warface mix and invites players to not only target their enemies, but also to enjoy tearing apart the many destructible elements of the environment – from plates and lanterns to neon signs.
Aside from the maps, today's update also enhances other key gameplay elements, and underscores Crytek's commitment to offering a steady stream of new content to players in their debut games-as-a-service title. First up, a combination of level design choices and the introduction of a dynamic spawn system keeps respawning fatalities to a minimum on the new maps. On top of this, players will also find that they now receive higher scores for assisting teammates when they take down enemies in both Co-op and Versus play. Other enhancements that come with the update include the ability for new players to use all four classes of soldier from the outset, without the need to unlock them, as well as ongoing work to improve anti-cheat measures.
