The game is powered by CryEngine 3. Being developed by Crytek Kiev and co-produced by Crytek Seoul and Crytek Frankfurt, it was originally aimed for a release in mainland China. In August 2011 Crytek announced that the game would be hitting the Western markets in 2012. Later on in February 2012, the game was announced to be published by Nexon in South Korea and Taiwan. This game is currently in an open beta stage on Mail.Ru's game client in Russia. It was announced in July 2012 that Trion Worlds will be publishing the game in United States, New Zealand, Turkey, Australia, and Europe. Warface closed beta started on the 17 January 2013.
In August 2012 an announcement was made that Warface could possibly be coming to consoles such as Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the near future. In August 28, 2013, Crytek announced that Warface would come to Xbox 360 in early 2014.
The game features 4 different classes: rifleman, sniper, medic and engineer. Each class has its own unique types of primary weapons (e.g. assault rifles) and "specials" (except for the sniper class), and are each uniquely suited for different roles. The rifleman acts as the main firepower, and also has ammo boxes which can be used to resupply ammunition for his/her teammates or himself/herself. Sniper class users can hit more far range targets. Medics can only shoot so far as they are equipped with a shotgun as their primary weapon, but they are essential to everyone in the cooperative modes - as they can heal themselves and others, and also revive others by defibrillation. The engineer class can set up proximity mines and claymores and have SMGS - and are therefore suited towards close-range combat. They can also repair armour, their own or others. The rifleman class by default is equipped with a M4A1(R4A1 in-game for copyright reasons), a HP Browning pistol(High-Powered pistol in-game), a standard knife, and a frag grenade.
