9comments Crytek Going Free-To-Play
Posted Tue 19th Jun 2012 11:08pm by Kelly Miller
All future products will be completely free of charge
 Free-To-play used to be a term that gamer’s only heard when associated with a growing trend among the MMO genre. In the past few years many more popular developers have begun to pick up on it as well, incorporating the model into many other gaming genres. As it becomes a more and more popular mode of development and distribution, one of the largest AAA developers has decided to make the jump to completely free-to-play.
Crytek, the developer of the graphically intensive Crysis series of first person shooters, is doing away with its packed products and instead turning towards a completely free-to-play development scheme. The first game that they are producing in this manner is titled Warface, a strategic class based shooter in the vein of Team Fortress.
The company CEO Cevat Yerli said in an interview with Videogamer that he believes that DLC and premium services are doing nothing but hurting the consumer. Because of this they are planning on leaving packaged products behind entirely and focus on making games that, while still graphically intensive, will be available completely free of charge. Another interesting bit is that although the company's game will look as good as ever, as stated on the official website, CryEngine 3 is so scalable that it can run games on virtually any machine. 
"As is evident in Warface, our approach is to ensure the best quality, console game quality,"
While the team still has a few more games to finish up, such as the follow up to Crysis 2, once these titles are finished they will be completely switching over to their new focus.
"Right now we are in the transitional phase of our company, transitioning from packaged goods games into an entirely free-to-play experience.
Warface is currently live in Russia, in Beta in China, and hopefully coming to the US sometime in the near future. Check out the official website to subscribe to updates and reserve your nickname for when it eventually releases sometime in 2012.

it is FACT that Killzone 3 has a higher FPS rate than Crysis 2. It is FACT that 2% sceren tearing in C2 is more than KZ3 s 0%. It is fact that KZ3 is running full native 720P while C2 is running slightly sup HD. It is fact that C2 has pop-ins (uninstalled) and KZ3 has none (also uninstalled). None of this is opinion.An opinion is saying, C2 is a better game than KZ3 . Trying to say, C2 is better than KZ3 in graphics and performance is denial. You can like the look of one game more than the other but the tech difference will always be there. They are CLOSE, but KZ3 wins the H2H based on the FACTS. I have never tired to bash an opinion in this topic so trying to twist words to make yourself look better makes you look to be the stupid one. Don't believe me? Learn to read.By your logic I can say Zelda on the NES has better graphics than both C2 and KZ3 and be right? Self ownage much? And on one final note AGAIN I have never stated that the staff is 100% correct in everything they say, but I do hold everything they say in high regard. They work very hard on these H2H and they deserve the credit for providing us with this info. I'm not bothing to explain ONCE AGAIN how I don't always agree with the staff as I've pointed it out several times in this topic already. Whether or not you have the ability to comprehend that, I don't know. But I'm taking the advice of Badassbab and turning the other cheek to the rest of your pointless comments. Anything else you say will fall on deaf ears.VN:F [1.9.15_1155](from 0 votes)
