Crytek's free to play first person shooter Warface will soon be hitting both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles. Featuring a wide variety of PVE missions, Raids, a wide arsenal of weapons, diverse PVP game modes, and four playable classes running on Crytek's CryEngine (Prey, Far Cry, Crysis, Hunt: Showdown). With that out of the way, let's do a quick overview of what the game has to offer.
Warface will come with ten varying PVP modes
- As most games under this genre, this is a last man standing free for all battle set in an area that shrinks over time. Players will begin with a knife and will have to scavenge their way to victory.
Team Death Match
- As the name suggests, this is a race to 150 kills team-based mode.
Plant The Bomb
- This mode requires both attackers and defenders. Attackers are tasked to plant a bomb in designated checkpoints by any means necessary. Defenders, on the other hand, needs to secure the designated areas either by eliminating the attackers or by diffusing the bomb.
Free For All
- Set in small maps, this mode is a round-based battle where victory is gained by getting the most kills.
- This mode features 3 checkpoints and whoever captures all 3 in the fastest time possible is the victor
- Similar to Plant the Bomb, however, this mode has a 90-second countdown clock.
- This mode also features Attackers and Defenders, the difference is that instead of a bomb, players will be fighting for a briefcase containing launch codes.
- A team-based mode where two teams battle for control over several designated checkpoints. Securing a certain checkpoint generates points overtime, which means the longer the team holds the area, the bigger the points.
PVE Missions and Raids
A variety of in-game missions with several difficulty levels will be available for players ranging from escort, high-value target elimination, area defense, securing a checkpoint and much more.
Raids will become available as the player progresses through the game. This mode will feature challenging missions that require teamwork. These missions require more time to complete but will award players with superior gears, achievements, badges, and marks. Below are three raids currently revealed for consoles.
- A full ground assault to capture or eliminate a VIP housed in a skyscraper teeming with various defensive units.
- Set in the South African region, players are tasked to secure a rocket site, a server room and wait for further instructions.
- A continuation of the Anubis mission, players are trapped in the middle of a sandstorm surrounded by cyborg hordes and will have to survive using available resources at hand.
Warface will feature four playable classes each equipped with their own unique skills, weapons, and abilities. First is the Rifleman which is an all-around role in charge of suppressing enemy attacks, refilling ammo and is equipped with rifles and light machine guns, Medics can revive downed teammates and are equipped with weapons designed for close quarter combat like combat shotguns. Then there's the Engineer class equipped with compact SMGs and PDWs in charge of explosives, sabotage, subterfuge, and armor repair. Last but not the least are Snipers, this class does not have any special abilities what they do have are bolt action and semi-automatic rifles designed for that one-shot kill.
"A separate team has been composed to work with Warface on consoles, so the attention given to the “original” PC version will not be lowered in any way."
Warface is not a new game, in fact, it was launch for the PC in 2013, STEAM in 2014, and an Xbox 360 port in 2014 which was discontinued in 2015. The console version, however, will not be a direct PC port. Warface is scheduled to launch in August of this year, the developers are currently offering a free gift through this LINK. Check out the announcement trailer below for more information and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
