The long in beta free-to-play shooter, 'Warface' is now live in North America, Europe and Turkey according to Crytek. The game is an online PC shooter that seems to exist somewhere between the 'Battlfield' series and the classic 'Counter-Strike.'

Choose from one of four classes of soldier and brace yourself for intense multiplayer action that rewards both teamwork and skill.

"Take to the battlefields of the near-future in Warface and discover a new kind of FPS that offers maximum quality and instant accessibility in one explosive package."

Surface indications to the contrary, 'Warface' has been described as understanding how over-serious many shooters are, and that a self-aware tone exudes the gameplay. Playing the game requires a free GFace account available here.
