Warface re-emerges in closed beta form at gamescom next week

Tuesday, 13th August 2013 13:11 GMT By Dave Cook

Warface developer Crytek will showcase its free-to-play shooter at gamescom next week, following a period of silence on the game’s western release. The closed beta build will be playable on the show floor.

In a press release sent to VG247, Crytek confirmed that between August 21-25, players will be able to try out the Warface closed beta in Hall 7.1, area A 031.

The Warface beta will see players from North America, Europe and Turkey facing off over a variety of maps using four soldier classes. You can sign up for the next closed beta phase over at the Warface site.

Crytek also reminded us that its bringing Ryse: Son of Rome to gamescom as well. Stay tuned for our new report on the game soon.

I interviewed Crytek about how it looks to challenge the free-to-lay market with CryEngine 2′s advanced technical clout. Find out what they told me here.

    VG247 states:

    Bull shit. You “allow” them on so you can make money. Plain and simple. Just tell the fucking truth. Even with my popup blockers I can’t load up a single page without a gamestop page popping up. I’m done with this site.

    It’s kind of a beta test for the new site. This is the same message that Eurogamer shows, and VG247 is part of the Eurogamer site from what I understand.

    @2 thanks Deathm00n

    I’m just so annoyed at the moment. I LOVED this site for its next to zero ads. And now I can’t even load any page without getting popups (even with popup blockers active).

    On top of that, VG247 can’t even tell it like it is. Advertising isn’t just for gathering data… it’s main purpose is to generate money for all parties involved. At the very least, just tell it like it is. VG247 readers deserve better than bs headers and popups. Damn… I use to love this site.

    @3 Let’s see the true new layout before making harsh decisions, shall we?

    @3 Dude, it’s a standard disclaimer that loads of sites have. Just relax, the site’s going through some mechanical changes this week as we prep for our re-design. Nothing you see is final. Nothing.

    Plus, what does ads have to do with our editorial content. That hasn’t changed. Just be aware that none of our team wrote that disclaimer, it’s honestly just a standard legal thing sites with cookies need these days.

    Just use CCleaner after web browsing and all those left over files/temp files will vanish.
