Warface Launches on Steam – Hit the Front Line for Free in Cryteks Thrilling FPS

Crytek today announced that their explosive free-to-play shooter, Warface, is now available on Steam. Featuring action-packed Co-op and Versus gameplay, Warface is an online first-person shooter that offers brand new missions every day and a constant flow of fresh content to keep everyone returning to the front line. Featuring a near future setting and war zones scattered around the globe, Warface is available through Steam to players in North America, Europe, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand, and is localized into English, French, German, Turkish and Polish.

Warface Franchise Director, Hasit Zala, said: "Bringing Warface to Steam paves the way for a new audience to discover the game's engrossing cooperative and competitive action; completely for free. As well as putting the power of CRYENGINE to work, Warface draws on Crytek's FPS expertise to ensure players are immersed in the heat of battle – whether they're jumping in for a quick game with friends or dedicating more time to the game's extensive multiplayer modes."

Warface features four distinct soldier classes, and places a special emphasis on teamwork as players unite under the Warface banner to tackle the rival forces of Blackwood in Co-op missions all over the world.  Team-based actions broaden the possibilities in battle, while extensive customization options mean every soldier has a unique part to play as they set off on daring campaigns. In Versus mode, players pick a side and choose to represent Blackwood or Warface in one of six game types, including Team Death Match, Plant the Bomb, Free for All and more.
