Tencent Games, the biggest online gaming company in China, has confirmed acquiring the publishing rights for Crytek’s upcoming MMOFPS, Warface for the China region. Developed by Crytek Korea, the game utilizes the latest CryEngine 3, with gaming graphics taking realism to a whole new level. The game will also be Crytek’s first foray into the world of Free to Play MMOs. Similar to most MMOFPS out there, Warface will have various PvE and PvP modes. I am slightly surprised by this announcement, as from the conversations I last had with my friends over there, the overall PC specs found in internet cafes and homes are still stuck in the lower-middle region. But well, we shall see if this game will work out in the Mainland (China’s other name if you do not know). Official introduction after the short video.
Crytek’s first online FPS called Warface is a military shooter in a near future setting. It offers a cinematic experience with next gen visuals, AI and physics based on Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE® 3 game development solution. Warface provides gamers with a constantly updated extensive PVE universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions, a full set of class based PVP and will be available for PC. This new Crytek IP is especially dedicated to the Korean and other Asian markets and is co-produced by Crytek Seoul. Warface is supported by a free-to-play business model.
