Open beta underway now
Major Nelson is reporting something that fans of Crytek and free to play shooters will enjoy. The closed beta period for Warface is over and the game has now entered the open beta phase. The game is available for anyone with an Xbox and Live Gold membership to download right now.
The open beta is bringing the three versus modes that gamers had to play in the closed beta. There are several maps to choose form and two different co-op settings. Crytek is promising that it will be rolling out a constant stream of updates for the game.
We are all sued to seeing high-end AAA titles from Crytek like Crysis, Warface seems to be a bit more low key. I guess it would be too much to hope for a game of Crysis quality at no cost.
Crytek is offering up some tips on getting into the game and fighting against the players that were around for the closed beta.
Crytek said, "In Versus games it’s important to be fast and make maximum use of your chosen class’ abilities. For example, an Engineer can set deadly traps with claymores, and a Medic can last a long time when keeping their health and damage ratio in check."
"As for Co-op, it highly depends on the map and the difficulty on which you play; it’s more about each player’s individual skill set that should match with the overall tactics of the team, but being in constant communication with the team, and being reactive to the needs of the mission is critical."
