After being tormented previously by the buggy launcher, a fix was found and I was able to get into the Closed Beta phase for Warface. Developed by Crytek Korea using CryEngine 3, Warface is the first online title from the studio and aiming to crack the China market first, with the help of the country’s biggest publisher Tencent Games. Once again, I am a total noob at online shooters, so do spare me the taunts~
I actually did introduce the game before, so I wouldn’t touch much on the basics. There are 4 classes (I am playing as Assault in all footage), AI PvE maps, PvP maps, weapons customization (not available now) and some pretty new moves, for example the sliding attack.
There are certainly more maps, for example the AI PvE one fighting against a giant mecha, but due to the lack of players at this phase, it is really hard to find a room with enough players.
So, how did the game felt for me? Overall, it is just slightly above average due to mechanics such as needing 2 players to reach some platforms or to push heavy objects out of the way, but much of the credit goes to the visually stunning graphics Warface has to offer. I feel that the game shouldn’t really be judged so early at this stage, I shall wait for more content to be added before going more in-depth.
