War, In Your Face. It’s Crytek’s Warface.

Men with guns! WARFACE!

Talking of Crytek, they’ve just announced a new game. It’s looking to be aimed at Asian markets, a multiplayer shooter with the eminently shoutable name, Warface. And that’s about all we know just now. It’s in the CryEngine 3, as you might imagine, and if my Chinese is up to scratch, it’s emphasising “positive versus” gaming. I’ve no idea what that means, but I imagine it’s some sort of tactical co-op. The Taiwanese site, GNN, that has the info is here. We picked up on this story from VG247. You can see the two new screenshots in full size by clicking below.

    Warface does sound like something you’d shout at people in the streets.

  2. markcocjin says:

    Just great. All that tech and they decide to do things all brown and grey just like every other war themed game.

    but… why Asians?
    Unless they’re making it to train North Korea for a hypothetical invasion of… let’s say… CANADA!?

    • The Innocent says:

      Maybe. Thank goodness then that we’ve got a defend-North-America-from-the-Koreans game coming out soon: Homefront!

  6. SirKicksalot says:

    Could it be a PC exclusive?

    • Skusey says:

      I started listening to this as soon as I saw the title of the game. Lovely Crytek for reminding me.

    I thought Facebook registered “Face” as a trademark yesterday. Won’t this be a problem? :p

    WAREFACE

  18. Ybfelix says:

    “positive versus” is a bit too literal, “正面对战” is actually the Chinese name of this game, meaning roughly “Frontal Conflict”, or “Face-to-Face Warfare”, if you will.

    Translation (some blah blahs omitted)

    “Warface was revealed at Korea Games Conference 2009 as “Project W”, uses CryEngine 3, a online FPS set in the far future

    Warface put emphasis on high visual quality, advanced AI and physics, cinematic experience. Variety of PVE, world building, storytelling, co-op, and PvP

    Crytek Korea says the game’s Alpha is complete and currently searching for a operator. Release date is undecided, Asia will be the main market, would adopt a “partial subscription” model .  

    • subedii says:

      So I’m guessing that probably means Free to Play with microtransactions.

  37. Navagon says:

    Crytek seem to be very good at reducing their potential market. Now hardware has caught up with them they decide to shun most of the world on a geographical basis instead. Very odd to have such a reclusive developer. Yet one that still manages to complain about external influences hurting their sales.

    • Dances to Podcasts says:

      I think you’ll find Asia IS most of the world.

    • Navagon says:

      Not in terms of people who buy games (as in actually buy them).
