In Your Face: New Warface Shots At Last

Blimey, it's been a while since we saw anything of Warface. The last time we posted about Crytek's free-to-play online shooter was in December 2010 when they released some footage. In fact, it's been so long that some sites have only just noticed it exists. What has instead happened is Crytek have added three new screenshots to their site, although goodness knows when, and as you might imagine, they look very pretty.

Using CryEngine 3, it's obviously going to be quite a striking looking game, and certainly likely to up the bar for free online games. In terms of graphics, at least. We've no idea how it will play. What we do know is that it's primarily aimed at Asian markets, where such projects tend to prove a lot more popular. But we know there's enormous international interest to play a new Crytek game, especially one that's pushing the PC, and it will appear in the West too.

It also promises, "a vast and constantly updated PVE universe complete with dramatic co-op missions that reward teamwork and individual skill, and a full set of class-based PVP games for unmatched competitive play." Which pleases me greatly.

There's no fixed release date, but it says it should be out at some point this year. Whether that's only in Asia at this point is unclear. Here are the new pics:
