Free-to-play FPSWarface closed beta opens ahead of full launch in spring photo



Trion Worlds and Crytek have kicked first-person shooter Warface into gear, announcing that the free-to-play game's servers are now operational for the closed beta. Amusingly, the "social entertainment platform" powering Warface has literally been named GFACE. Might as well double down on the branding while they're at it.

Of course, if you weren't previously compelled to sign up for the beta and have since had a change of heart, it is not too late to become registered. The game doesn't launch until spring 2013, so there's plenty of time. I'd be curious to see how the monetization has taken form.

Crytek bringing free-to-play FPS Warface to Xbox 360

Okay. I'm willing to admit it -- for as silly as the name Warface is, it's fairly memorable. In a sea of free-to-play first-person shooters, this is among the first (and only!) to immediately come to mind. Not that I've ever ...more

E3: Gorgeous free-to-play shooting all over your Warface
