Crytek might have taken a punt by moving towards free-to-play titles, but Warface seems to be exceeding expectations in Russia. The studio has announced over five million users have registered in the country alone.
The upcoming title recently received the Best Online Game prize in Russia’s Runet Awards.
“Reaching the five million registered users mark speaks volumes about the quality and appeal of Warface,” said Vladimir Nikolsky, Vice President of Warface publisher, Mail.Ru Group Game Division. “With a combination of first-class visuals and gameplay that is second to none, Warface stands out from the crowd and promises to attract even more attention from players in the future.”
Trion Worlds have hopped on board the US and European release as co-publisher, although a release date is yet to be confirmed.
