Free-to-play 'Warface' gets battle royale mode on Xbox One this month

Warface is a free-to-play shooter which has a significant following on PC. The game is developed by Crytek, who are known for stunning games like Crysis and Ryse: Son of Rome. According to the studio, Warface is a competitive experience that pits two factions — Warface and Blackwood — against one another in ranked or casual play.

Over the past year, battle royale games like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds have become increasingly popular. So many developers have put out their own versions. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 may be the best one out there because it features the tightest shooting mechanics and visuals. The game targets 4K 60 FPS on Xbox One X.

You keep asking us about Battle Royale and when it comes to consoles. It is planned for October, 23rd for PS4 and October, 30th for Xbox. Pretty soon, huh? 32 players, fast-paced gameplay and equal conditions - we're excited to see how it goes for you!

While Warface has always had a battle royale mode on PC, it's coming to Xbox One very soon. A post on Reddit by the company provided more details.

The player count isn't a hundred players, and the maps seem to be smaller too. Those looking for a less hectic experience may consider giving Warfare a go. The shooting mechanics might not be on the level of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, but more battle royale options are always welcome.

  • It's not really free to play on Xbox when you have to purchase one of the classes for the game download
  • its only a complaint if u are an offline player. u use xbox live.. u dont notice it.
  • Well, it's anti-gamer and anti-consumer to ask money to play a free to play game. Other platforms don't ask money for it. ofc fanboys will damage control and defend this or deflect the attention because for them the priority is not gamers, gaming or consumers. Their priority is a company/brand. MS/XB in this case.
  • I think you may have needed to make a purchase to play it when it was pre-general release, but you don't now. I'm only here from googling Warface as I downloaded it yesterday and wanted to see if BR was coming to XB. Not sunk a penny into the game yet. I think War Thunder is currently on the same model - you need to pay to access it right now, but it'll be fully free to play sometime in the future.
