Crytek has announced a partnership with NEXON in order to bring its free-to-play FPS, Warface, to PC players in Japan.

The partnership will help further expand the IP in the Asian market.

“Expanding Warface to Japan is a very important step for us,” said Cevat Yerli, Crytek president and CEO. “Since it’s a global IP, this move perfectly underlines our strategy in sharing the game’s unique action with gamers around the world.

“Nexon is a very trusted partner; they have shown us tremendous results in South Korea, where Warface just entered open beta after receiving highly positive feedback from gamers during closed beta, and we are sure that they will play a key role in ensuring Warface’s success in Japan as well.”

Warface recently hit 10 million users in Russia – You can sign up for open beta here, which is yet to be announced outside of Korea.
