Crytek, the developers behind the hardware intensive Crysis games, have joined the free-to-play model with their newest game, to be released around the same time as Crysis 3 (but only for PC at the moment). Warface looks to be a perfectly strong FPS game, featuring all the usual trappings of current offerings: deathmatches, double XP events and a multitude of cleverly designed levels and realistic weapons.
