Warface Xbox 360 edition launching April 22

Free-to-play shooter exits open beta after a month

Warface Xbox 360 Edition will launch on April 22, Crytek and Microsoft Studios announced Monday.

The free-to-play first-person shooter entered open beta in late March. The PC version has attracted more than 25 million registered players since it debuted in Russia in April 2012 and elsewhere around the world in October 2013.


Crytek plans to add new class-based competitive multiplayer and co-op, gear, and other content into the game on a daily basis leading up to and past its public release.

"Our goal with Warface has always been to show that free-to-play games can be top quality, blockbuster experiences that match the industry's highest standards," Crytek publishing GM Dirk Metzger said after its release on PC.

Warface entered closed beta on Xbox 360 early in February. Though the game itself is free-to-play, only paid Xbox Live Gold subscribers are allowed access.

The game runs on CryEngine 3, the same engine which powers Crysis 3 and Ryse.
