Warface Closed Beta Underway

Trion Worlds announces closed beta testing of Warface is underway, preparing the way for the release of Crytek's free-to-play shooter this spring. Thos interested in participating are urged to sign up on the Warface Website. Here are some details:

Trion Worlds, the leading publisher and developer of premium games for the connected era, today kicks off the closed beta for Warface, the upcoming free-to-play shooter, in cooperation with renowned developer and co-publisher Crytek GmbH (Crytek). Warface will be accessed through GFACE®, Crytek’s social entertainment platform that is designed to enable its users to play games together live and to discover and share entertainment content with friends. The Warface beta servers are scheduled to be open from January 17 at 9:00am PST / 5pm GMT until the official Warface launch in Spring 2013.

“Trion Worlds and Crytek have been working closely to bring Warface to Western players looking for a first-person shooter with striking graphical detail and unsurpassed gameplay – for free,” said Dirk Metzger, General Manager Publishing at Crytek. “We look forward to making the experience even more engaging as waves of pre-registered players are invited to join the Closed Beta and play their part in shaping Warface ahead of its final launch.” Players looking for fast-paced, exhilarating multiplayer and co-op gameplay, from one of the world’s most renowned first-person shooter studios, who have not yet registered can still do so at: www.warface.com.

The game casts players as part of Warface, a select unit of elite warriors that have banded together to fight Blackwood – the ruling brute-force government. Featuring intense first-person shooter co-op and competitive multiplayer gameplay, with regularly added new content, Warface gives players plenty of level-up opportunities and various upgrades, keeping you on your toes and forcing you to switch up your combat strategies in the heat of battle.

I honestly can't think of a game that came with a more stupid sounding name. Like, ever. There was a (French?) MMO named "Dofus" that came close I suppose.

Warboobs.

Picture on the cover of well-endowed babes in camo berets and not much else, riding in a jeep and pointing at a tank full of sharks with lazer guns on their heads.

You can put the check in the mail.

well the current standards are crap as well. COD and BF3 both have horrible horrible netcode, only current FPS that has good netcode is CS.
I've only played a bit of the more recent CoD games on consoles over at friends' houses, but what I have played seemed reasonably solid. Granted, no up to par with the CS games and TF2, but notably better than anything Crytek and Dice have used, or the more recent stuff from Epic for that matter, dedicated servers and otherwise.

Crytek's netcode has always been crap, hopefully they've done something about that for this game.

11 Posts, and not a single, "Show me your WARFACE! RAAAAAAGH!" quote?

For shame.

Those make too much sense, they need to be strangely unrelated.

Yeah, not the best name. Interesting that they are offering coop as part of their offerings. Usually competitive multiplayer is all you get out of a FTP FPS.

Most unappealing name for a game since Wargasm? You decide. Makes me think of 13 year olds with too much testosterone.

Should have called it Warpig, with the opposition as Masters of Reality . Low-slung Ozzy / Sabbath vibe, oooh yeah.

all the videos I've seen of this look really bad

The few minutes I played with the alpha were a ton of fun, but it was about 10 minutes of blowing things up. Not much of an evaluation, but the shooting felt right.
