I got a chance to play Trion and Crytek's new game Warface. Warface is a new, online, free FPS that uses CryEngine3. The pitch from the creators is that Warface is all about bringing down barriers to Crytek games. The cost, often a major barrier, has been dropped to $0 which will allow almost anyone to play.
Additionally, the controls are intuitive and easy to use and the graphics, stunning. The game has already launched in Russia and China to wide acclaim. Crytek has already seen 50,000 simultaneous users and have over 1.5 million registered. The game, currently in closed beta, should be coming to the United States soon.
The game is said to run on hardware as old as the 8600GT which means another barrier has been removed. Most everyone in the world has a graphics card that is as capable as the 8600GT was, so it shouldn't require upgrades like Crysis 3 will. It also has a nice system of introducing players to the game so they aren't losing right off the bat. This prevents users from raging and not coming back to the game.
The game features two modes: a co-op PvE and a free-for-all PvP. In PvE, teams compete against AI and work together to a common goal. This feature allows users to get used to the game before going into the more hardcore PvP. In PvP, players play against each other and this is where seasoned vets can show their ability.
