Is Warface the Next Generation Free-to-Play FPS?


When looking for a good free-to-play first-person-shooter game, it’s never easy. Most of these games don’t necessarily differentiate from each other. They’re the usual arena sort of games where it’s all close-combat. However, that isn’t always the case. And Warface, is one of these exceptions.

What Does it Offer?

Warface is a very genuine FPS game, especially since it’s free. Once of the notable reasons it’s easily represented this way are the small little features that have made big impacts. This includes the slide feature. You can do this by pressing F(default) on your keyboard while you’re sprinting. It allows you to try-out some awesome slide kills. This idea is relatively rare and isn’t commonly seen in most other populous games. Which adds to the reason why Warface is its own game.

But another feature of this game that isn’t tried as much in other games is the graphics. You can compare it to any other free-to-play first-person-shooter such as Alliance of Valiant Arms, Battlefield Play4Free, or even Combat Arms. Neither of these games can compare to the graphics that Warface has to offer. In some situations within the game, when a rocket launcher nearly misses you, you can feel the impact from a shake and see it from the dirt on your face. You can also see the speck of detail on a mud wall in the desert or even some grass. The developers of this game, Crytek, have surely made sure that they didn’t miss a speck of detail in order to give you the feeling that you’re actually there.

Of all features, my favorite has to be the co-op mission. As far as I’ve seen, no other free-to-play first-person-shooter offers a background story that comes along with co-op gameplay. These missions change on a regular basis so that you’re always deployed in a different mission every day. Once you complete the mission, you’ll be receiving some rewards the very next day. What Crytek has done with this option is that it’s promoting the idea of working together. Meaning, every player is to help each other. Which isn’t very common amongst other games of this genre.

Where Will This Game Stand Upon its Release?

Warface as I’ve said many times is its own game. No other free-to-play first-person-shooter can compare to what Crytek has done. Once the game is released, I can guarantee that it’ll be seen as a role model. It’s going to be the main image of what a free-to-play first-person-shooter should be. Meaning, it’s got to have good looks, good gameplay, and even team work. Because the team work of this game is what binds it all together.

Never before, have I ever seen such game that will revolutionize the idea of a free-to-play first-person-shooter. In just a matter of years, this is the example that free-to-play first-person-shooter developers will follow.
