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.
