Get your game face on, Warface Closed Beta Starts Today
On an episode of Foreign Friday way back in August of last year we gave you guys a sneak peak at Crytek's first ever Free-to-Play endeavor Warface. Back then the game was only available in Russia where it garnered over 5 million players in just a short time after release. Despite all the text being in Russian and my ping being slightly above the threshold of absolutely awful, I enjoyed the FPS. I fancied the games PvE mode in particular, which heavily relies on players working together as a squad traversing multiple pathways (some accessible only with a squadmate's help) and fulfilling specific roles needed in order to overcome the surprisingly difficult AI. Now the semi-futuristic FPS is finally making its way to the US with publishing help from Trion Worlds.
As of 9:00am PST this morning the game has gone into closed beta where it will stay until the game´s official launch this Spring. Players will access the game through GFACE (seriously what´s with all the face references) which is Crytek's new snazzy social entertainment platform. Why they feel the need to add another platform for me to launch games from I have no clue.
No word yet on how many players gained access today or how quickly Crytek plans on adding more waves of players to the beta roster. If you haven't already done so you will need to sign up for a chance at a beta invite by entering your email on the official site here.

the game is amazing each day's diffrent misson's and it's awesome some time they are hard
you need a teamwork to survive a PVE cuz it's Hard alot so for all who wait for this game for now start with RU version don't wait untill you get the code or something that to play US version i hope i helped you all in somthing :D
I didnt got a mail, that i can play... are they kidding me?!
Pretty nice game , Very optimised :D AAA Game :P
Hope it will not become a Pay 2 Win (since u have PVP too)
need new pc!!!
lags, lags, ....
no thx bye
1) The buddy hoist system just replaces ladders as it is in SPECIFIC areas and serves at NOTHING durring pvp except to get shot fast, and all hoist points are not stratigic but usually just for snipe points, and it everyone knows it, and snipers life expentancy once up there is 2 seconds.
2) Classes are broke. It is liked they were in the middle of making a BF2 game and gave up and threw people into a zergy dime a dozen FPS. Medic is useless as everyone spawns in less than a second after death (just left click and you spawn, it happens so fast sometimes you are still shooting, and then split second death, and you still clikcing ot shoot and respawn). Now, 1 sec respawn + a medics revive paddles that take 30 seconds to charge. Tell me, you going to sit there for 30 secs, and wait for a spawn or just insta spawn and run back in less than 2 seconds (because small zergy maps)...do the math, it is stupid and FEELS stupid and broke. I Can go on with engineers and the fact every one slides and 1 knife shots after level 15 (because you power up to tank build).
3) maps small and zergy. PVE is cool for a change BUT TO LATE. If you want PVE, go play single player game or play WarFrame. This mode feels like other fps PvE aspects but you just slide more... not a difference.
4) gear and item unlocks are pretty fair, cash shop pretty fair (ru end), selection of weapons not that great, and really, success of fail depends on who zergs the most. End of a year, I still give the online award to, SADLY, PS2 and AVA. Nothing to see here folks.
DL it. Try it yourself. YEAH it is Cryengine...but dat game play = makes you Cry.
looks badass O_O
