The team at Crytek seems to have a thing for Microsoft’s consoles as of late. Today the developer launched Warface Xbox 360 Edition, an action shooter that’s in line with their FPS heritage. Six months ago, the company launched the Xbox One-exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome (shown above) as a first-party title from Microsoft.
Ryse was quite a different game for Crytek, with a heavy emphasis on quick-time events (QTE) and deliberate combat that felt similar to the gun-reloading minigame in Gears of War. Click this link to read our full Ryse: Son of Rome review.
By contrast, Warface Xbox 360 Edition is much more in line with Crytek’s heritage. Warface Xbox 360 Edition is an online first-person shooter akin to the studio’s earlier efforts on Far Cry. The notable difference, other than the new game’s focus on more militaristic combat, is that it appears to be played from a third-person perspective.
The free-to-play shooter will feature a five-soldier Co-op Mode and competitive sixteen-person maximum Versus Mode in which players can master four “Warface” classes: Rifleman, Sniper, Medic and Engineer to experience different tactical approaches, gameplay styles and unique weapon sets.
Starting today, Warface Xbox 360 Edition will receive regularly updated content such as new, daily co-operative campaign missions and a continuous supply of new maps and new weapons.
