Warface is a new first-person shooter that is winning fans all over the world with its cooperative play, constantly updated content, and Warface hacks that allow for truly a customizable experience. Developed by Crytek, the game is free-to-play and streamed rather than downloaded, giving FPS fans very few reasons not to give it a try. There is also a built-in social aspect that makes playing with friends extremely fast and simple. While there are plenty of military-sim FPS titles out there, none are quite like Warface.
Cooperative PvE missions are one of the things that make Warface unique. The maps and scenarios are actually designed with locations that can only be accessed with the help of another player. Special equipment or Warface cheats may allow you to get there on your own, but the game is often more fun when you combine efforts with up to five players. You can play as one of four different classes, Rifleman, Sniper, Engineer, or Medic. Snipers can climb walls, penetrate cover, and fire with enough accuracy that they seem to be using a Warface multihack. Riflemen carry heavy firepower and plenty of armor. Engineers specialize in explosives and can leave deadly traps all over the map. Medics can heal and revive friendly players, and are exceptionally dangerous at close range.
Warface is set in the year 2023, when a ruthless terrorist organization named Blackwood has seized economic and military control of the entire planet. Self-serving Blackwood wants money, power, and resources, and they don’t care how many people they have to kill to get it. Warface is the name of a powerful resistance movement formed by ex-military elites from Earth’s fallen nations. PvP players can choose to represent Warface or Blackwood, while PvE missions only allow you to fight on the side of good.
Another unique aspect of the game is the ability to switch out weapon configurations on the fly. Each of sixty different firearms can be equipped with various scopes, sights, barrels, and other enhancements. Once unlocked, these upgrades can be changed instantly without slowing down gameplay. Enhancements can be purchased with XP earned by completing missions, so new players won’t be able to flip through options until they’ve been playing for a while.
While Warface is a free-to-play game, the developers at Crytek have worked hard to keep it from becoming a pay-to-win title. Real money can buy you XP boosts and resurrection tokens, but won’t allow you to immediately unlock everything all at once. Right now the game has only been released in Russia, China, and South Korea, where it has enjoyed major success. There are plans to bring Warface to Japan, Brazil, North America, and the wider European market in the near future. Wareface had a successful US beta test in early 2013, and fans are eagerly awaiting the inevitable release. FPS fans and those who enjoy cooperative play have found Warface to be a new favorite of casual and hardcore players alike.
