'Warface' Steam Beta Released, Play Crytek's Free To Play Shooter Through Valve's Service Now [VIDEO]
Crytek has announced that its free-to-play shooter Warface (currently available in beta online) has officially launched as a Steam Beta today.
Warface is available through Valve's digital distribution service now, previously offered only in a separate client from Crytek's site. The game features brand new missions every day in both cooperative and competitive gameplay modes and is extending its beta to Steam. It's also available on Xbox 360 - free to play on all systems.
With this expansion, Crytek is launching Warface in multiple regions around the world including North America, Europe, Turkey and Australia, and has localized the game into English, French, German, Turkish and Polish.
"Bringing Warface to Steam paves the way for a new audience to discover the game's engrossing cooperative and competitive action; completely for free," said Franchise Director, Hasit Zala.
"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 offers four different soldier classes to play as, and is meant to place an emphasis on teamwork. In the competitive mode, there are six game types to choose from including Team Death Match, Plant the Bomb, and Free for All.
