This has been a massive hit over in Russia, and its being destined for big things so say many, apart from a crap name I am already liking the look of the beta so im just sharing this news post from PC Gamer with you guys. :-)

A free to play team shooter built in CryEngine 3 is actually a pretty exciting prospect, even before you factor in the giant mechs. If Warface is fast and accessible enough it could beat Call of Duty a its own game, providing a prettier experience for no money. Perhaps. It’s still too early to tell, but it looks like have a chance to get our hands on an early build soon. Crytek are hunting alpha testers right now. You can sign up for a chance to participate on the Warface site.

Warface registers one million players in Russia

According to the official site, Warface is “AAA4FREE!” What I think that’s trying to say is that it will be a big budget game driven by a powerful engine that will cost you no money to play. It’s being made by Crytek, who made Crysis using their CryEngine. It’s a good job they haven’t stuck to their naming conventions or we’d be talking about ‘Cryface’ right now.

Anyway, it’s doing very well. It’s in closed beta over here but the shooter seems to have taken Russia by storm. GamesIndustry International mention that it currently has ONE MILLION subscribers over there. 28,000 players were seen playing at the same time, which is apparently a Russian record. The early Warface trailers look pretty smart, and the addition of a good mech always go a long way. Early indications suggest this might be one to keep an eye on.

Looks to me like yet another run and gun shooter for the kids hunting for the highest score and climbing up the ladder.

And the mechs finally killed it for me. As if ArmA3 isn't too much futuristic enough... :-D

Looks like fun, and the CryEngine can do pretty amazing things. I`m not a big fan of 'mech things' but hey- looks like its for free. I will try it for sure :)
