Warface is set to receive its biggest updates yet. So big, in fact, that it might be more accurate to collectively call the series of content drops that will roll out between now and the end of 2019 something of a reboot. It all starts with Warface: Titan, which introduces a fifth playable class that looks like the Terminator. Officially billed as SED, this beefy metal monstrosity wields both a heavy chain gun and a grenade launcher, tearing up the battlefield with the sort of brutal power that would make Arnie blush.
For those out of the loop, Warface is a free-to-play military shooter that launched back in 2013. Developed by Crytek Kiev and Blackwood Games, and by much of the staff who worked on past Crytek offerings such as Far Cry and Crysis, its now absolutely heaving with PvP modes (ten), PvE operations (11), and registered players (80 million across all platforms).
Despite over six years of history, Crytek Kiev and Blackwood games tell us it’s still growing. We were invited to a guided hands-on session of the new update to test drive SED, during which our hosts killed us mercilessly over and over again across several new maps and modes (honestly, they didn’t hold back).
