Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter Warface has received a , titled Nevada Storm. It adds three new maps, as well as various improvements to gameplay.
The new maps take place (you guessed it) in Nevada. 'Airbase' and 'Streetwars' are straightforward Team Deathmatch levels, while 'Quarry' offers a new Capture the Flag venue.
Online browser title Warface from Crytek is officially launched in Europe and North America, using the studio's new social platform GFACE. It's a free-to-play first-person shooter powered by CryEngine 3.
It's a "constantly updated" universe that Crytek has in mind with Warface, with class-based FPS PvP and co-op missions. Crytek want to prove F2P can be "top quality, blockbuster experiences".
The tyranny of the beta period for Warface is nearly at an end with the F2P shooter going officially live next week, October 21st. It's already in full swing over in Russia and China, leaving just us Westerners behind.
To mark the occasion Crytek have released a teaser trailer for Warface's big push. It's got running, gunning and briefcase holding - everything you could want.
Speaking with Joshua Howard, executive producer for Warface, we learn that not all's 'fair' in war when it comes to regional expectations. The team have to adjust game balance for each market, like in Russia.
That doesn't mean Warface is unrecognisable in pace when you skip over regions, but the Crytek team had to "appreciate that 'fair' means different things" to the various camps.
Executive Producer Joshua Howard says that while personally the idea for more options being opened up with Valve's SteamOS for developers is great, it's "too early to say" on behalf of Crytek.
Crytek is also pushing forward with their own GFace social platform, after having found their footing self-publishing the F2P shooter Warface in multiple territories. "..not about taking over the world..."
