Warface coming to Xbox 360 in 2014, still free-to-play

It's still called Warface. And it's still free-to-play. But Crytek's shooter will be appearing on a brand new platform early next year: Xbox 360.
Co-produced by Crytek Seoul in South Korea, Warface features co-op missions as well as your regular class-based PvP play. Today's announcement continues Microsoft's push for free-to-play on the aging Xbox 360 platform, with World of Tanks also available as a free-to-play game on Microsoft's console.

Is it me or is Warface a really dumb name for a game. It is on the same lines as Warfigher. Devs, you don't need to have war games with the word war in it

Edit @below. I know. It does feel very lazy

gaelic_laoch1452d ago

I don't like hawk either.... seems lazy!

War face
War Thunder
War Hawk
Star Hawk

The game is FREE. If you pay your ISP to play your F2P MMO's on your PC. Does that mean that its suddenly not free? It is free because you don't pay specifically for the game , pay Microsoft to play ANY game online. Not just this game.

Kayant1452d ago

The problem with what you said is that the internet and your PC specs are basic requirements needed to play the game. XBL isn't because the point of Free to play games is that there is no barrier to access the game (No upfront cost). The point of F2P games is that all you pay for is the content in the game and nothing else but on the Xbox platform you have to pay for access to the game which you shouldn't because that defends the whole model in the first place. PC and PS4 support the true F2P models.

I wonder if they got round the pay wall thing then. I remember them saying they wanted to do this but didn't want to be stuck behind a pay wall (or am I thinking of someone else?)

edit: my mistake that was wargaming's CEO

Good the One is getting more F2P games. These will be handy for day one users

iamnsuperman1452d ago

Okay I missed the point of this article entirely. I assume this will make its way to the One eventually

GameCents1452d ago

Free to play is great, but I'm sure Xbox One buyers will have their hands full with Ryse, Forza, CoD, FIFA, WatchDogs, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising and the likes...

iamnsuperman1452d ago (Edited 1452d ago )

But you can't argue against the fact that having F2P games is a perfect thing for a launching system. How many people (who just put $400-$500 down) are going to afford 2/3 or more of those titles (at $60 a piece). A good (not those money grabbing POS) F2P game wouldn't go a miss. So this being on a the 360 it would be natural to move it to the One as well (bonus for XB1 buyers)

Some fan boys make me laugh so hard...why are fbs disliking his comments?.. sometimes when ever i feel down all it takes is to log into n4g and see the weird things that go on here I.e Someone says something.“wow titanfall is great. Can't wait to get it” and all of a sudden you see 20 likes and 58 dislikes...lmao..

Despite these F2P games being mostly always plain terrible and unfair, that Happy Wars game had a good and really fair progression. Even being an average player with only free content available, I managed to get MVP prizes quite regularly.

dazzrazz1452d ago

If only game that comes to your head is Happy Wars I'm pretty sure you never played War Thunder or Planetside 2 ?

MestreRothN4G1452d ago

Played Planetside 2 and consider it a good example of a bad F2P game. Not for the model, for the game itself.
War Thunder I didn't really.

Dakriz1452d ago

Can you please tell me where can I download War Thunder and Planetside 2 on my 360 as this is 360 related not PC ?

HammadTheBeast1452d ago

You think Planetside 2 is bad?

Godmars2901452d ago

Where is the mech in that game?

windblowsagain1452d ago

Played it on PC, was ok. only one map i tried.

But there is not a lack of shooters.
