Warface? WARFACE. The people behind one of gaming's most preposterous titles—a free-to-play shooter that somehow manages to combine the words "War" and "Face" without cracking a smile—have explained the rationale behind their decision.
Crytek is building Warface, the studio's first freemium shooter, shown recently at E3. It's also going to deliver Crysis 3, a more traditional FPS, sometime in 2013. Whenever the studio finishes off its current committments, CEO Cevat Yerli told VideoGamer.com, it will be developing free-to-play games only.
A modding toolkit for Crysis 2 will release in early summer, Crytek said today in an announcement. If that's not enough freedom for you, the CryENGINE SDK releases to developers in August. The Crysis 2 modkit will be free, the company's CEO said.
Cevat Yerli makes big video games for Windows PCs and, now consoles. He owns a Mac, but his studio doesn't make games for them. Apple, he said, doesn't try hard to get games.
Having despaired over technology complaints involving the PC-only first Crysis game, the main man behind Crysis 2 now dares to withstand the harsh judgments of console gamers.
Crysis developer Crytek reveals that they have done research into providing streaming game services like the ones Onlive is promising, only to conclude that the internet wouldn't be ready for them until at least 2013.
