Warface hits 25 million registered users globally

Milestone reached in just under two years since launch

Crytek has announced that its online first-person shooter Warface has hit 25 million registered users worldwide.

This milestone has been reached within just under two years since its April 2012 debut on PC in Russia. The game arrived on PC in North America, Europe, Turkey, Korea and Brazil in October 2013.

"It is a fantastic achievement for our franchise and for our teams, and we'd like to thank Warface players everywhere for their support," commented Crytek's CEO and creative director Cevat Yerli in a prepared statement.

"Warface is part of our games-as-service model, which means the game thrives off and revolves around our community," he added. "We look forward to delivering more of the great gameplay experiences that they have come to expect, and can promise the growing ranks of Warface fans that the franchise still has lots of surprises in store."

Warface hit open beta on Xbox 360 last week. The open beta version of the game carries over three Versus modes and two Co-op settings from the previously launched closed beta.

Warface is a free-to-play first-person shooter powered by CryEngine 3, the same engine under the hood of Crysis 3 and Ryse. Though the game itself is free-to-play, on Xbox 360 only paid Xbox Live Gold subscribers are allowed access.
