Crytek GmbH (Crytek) announced today that its free-to-play online FPS Warface - that was previously announced for a release in mainland China - will hit the Western markets in 2012. The CryENGINE®3 powered military shooter with its near future setting marks a major milestone in the studio’s history and provides gamers with a constantly updated extensive PVE universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions, a full set of class based PVP. Warface is designed completely from scratch to support a free-to-play business model and will be available for PC.
No less than six of the coveted European Games Award received Crytek in line with the European Games Awards in Cologne on Saturday. Crytek’s critically acclaimed Crysis 2 has been named “Best European Game” and “Best Action Game”. On top, the game has been honored for “Best Art Direction”, “Best Sound” and “Best Advertisement”. Last but not least, the majority of the participants voted the Frankfurt-headquartered Crytek the “Best European Developer”.
Over 550 of the global games development elite were on hand in Brighton yesterday evening to see the hottest studios in Europe take home the much-deserved accolades. After its success in 2004, Crytek has again scored the prize for “Best Independent Studio”. The team of Crytek UK picked up the award live on stage.
