Warface Sneak Peek Phase Starts Tomorrow

Posted Tue, Oct 01, 2013 by Martuk

Free-to-play shooter Warface returned to beta back in August and on October 2nd, Crytek is giving fans a chance to get some hands-on time with the latest build of the free-to-play shooter during a “sneak peek” event. Players that take part in tomorrow’s event will have the chance to sample some of the latest game content with a new China themed map location, a new class-specific tutorial, and the Destruction game mode, Crytek’s take on the classic capture and hold mode.

Character data from past beta tests will be wiped for the final time prior to the event. Tomorrow’s event will be open to everyone, so head over to the Warface website to sign up. A pre-open beta (is that a thing now?) will launch next week and remain restricted to invited players and allow access the in-game item shop. Sneak peek and pre-open beta will be available at the following times:

Sneak Peek
EU & Turkey: Wednesday, October 2nd  9AM CET – Monday, October 7th 9AM CET

US: Wednesday, October 2nd  3AM EST – Monday, October 7th  3AM EST

Pre-Open Beta

EU & Turkey: Monday, October 7th- 9AM CET

US: Monday, October 7th- 3AM EST


Warface Sneak Peek Phase Adds New Settings,
Game Modes and More


Frankfurt am Main (Germany) October 1, 2013 –
Crytek has announced that their free-to-play shooter Warface will enter an exciting new "Sneak Peek" phase tomorrow. For a chance to join the action, players can register at www.warface.com.

Players will have a wealth of new content to explore when the game update takes place, including new locations, game modes and rewards. The Sneak Peek phase will introduce a spectacular new Chinese setting that takes the fight against Blackwood forces to the Far East. Players will also be able to suit up as female soldiers for the first time, as well as try their hand at the brand new Destruction mode – a fresh take on classic capture and hold gameplay. Further updates mean Warface will now offer five daily Coop missions instead of three, and allow players to earn greater rewards by setting pre-game challenges. Finally, a new tutorial system will be introduced so that players can prepare for battle by undertaking short, class-specific training missions.

Before entering the Sneak Peek phase, character data built up during recent Closed Beta weekends will be wiped for the final time. The Sneak Peek phase will be open to everyone who is part of any Warface Closed Beta phase, and will be followed next week by the arrival of a Pre-Open Beta phase, which remains restricted to invited players. Sometime during this Pre-Open Beta phase, the Warface in-game shop will be made accessible.  Players can experience Warface's updated Sneak Peek and Pre-Open Beta gameplay during the following times:

Sneak Peek
EU & Turkey:
Wednesday, October 2nd  9AM CET – Monday, October 7th 9AM CET

US: Wednesday, October 2nd  3AM EST – Monday, October 7th  3AM EST

Pre-Open Beta

EU & Turkey: Monday, October 7th- 9AM CET

US: Monday, October 7th- 3AM EST

Crytek is also in the process of finalizing localized versions of Warface in French, German and Turkish for its full launch in Western territories, where the game will be accessed through the game-centric social hub, GFACE. GFACE gives players easy ways to interact with friends online and in-game, and is designed from the ground up to maximize the experience of playing together.

Featuring four distinct character classes and engaging cooperative and competitive gameplay, Warface provides high quality FPS action for free. The game’s online universe will be constantly updated to offer new challenges for players; whether they’re enjoying a quick campaign during their lunch hour, or delving deeper into all Warface has to offer.
