If you are a fan of Crytek and their creations, then you should be excited for the launch of their Warface Open Beta. Crytek is the brilliance behind games such as Crysis and RYSE: Son of Rome; they take advantage of their high-tech CryEngine to bring life-like and realistic graphics to the screen. Warface is another take on the common shooter, but powered by the company's insane graphics engine, and of course we cannot forget to mention that it is free to play.
According to the Crytek website, Warface is a game surrounded by “Conspiracy, Corruption, and Chaos”. We have to admit that the story is one we have seen before, a “world close to the breaking point” and a ruthless army attempting to threaten freedom as we know it.
The game was previously available as a closed beta for the Xbox 360, but has recently changed to an open beta for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Unfortunately, there is no word of the game coming to Xbox One, so for those of you who are still hoarding your last generation consoles – you are in luck!
According to a post from Microsoft, the open beta will bring three versus-modes that were included in the original closed beta. In addition, two beginner co-op modes will be available with “multiple mission types and difficulties”. Crytek states that they will continually be pushing out new content for those in the beta, so gamers will stay “entertained and wanting more”. New daily missions will also be available to make sure you check out and play the beta as much as possible.
We recommend checking out the above video to see the adventure and fun you are stepping into, and you can head to the Xbox Marketplace by clicking here, to download Warface for Xbox 360.
Will you be trying out Crytek’s Warface? It may be a good possible holdover until Titanfall lands on Xbox 360.
