Warface Hits 5 Million Players in Russia
Warface is Crytek's sleek free to play FPS that's making its rounds elsewhere before it hits our shores. The game has proven to be exceptionally popular in Russia -- so popular that it now has over 5 million registered users.
On top of being one of the most played games in Russia, it's also been voted as the best online game in the country in the Runet Awards.
Warface is being developed by Crytek, but is published by the Mail.Ru Group Game Division in Russia. Vladimir Nikolsky, the vice president of the publisher, boasts that the game has "a combination of first-class visuals and gameplay that is second to none," and goes on to say, "Warface stands out from the crowd and promises to attract even more attention from players in the future."
Trion Worlds will be publishing Warface for the English-speaking market, though there is no set release date yet.
