In early February the Crytek game Warface entered a limited beta allowing only specifically chosen gamers access to the game. The closed beta is now over and Warface is entering open beta to allow more gamers access. Open Beta will bring three Versus modes over from the Closed Beta.
Crytek made its name on the back of some of the coolest video games for the PC and console on the market like Crysis. Crytek also has a free to play game for PC players called Warface. Crytek has announced that it has teamed up with a company called DeNA to launch its first mobile free to play game. The new mobile game is called The Collectables.
Crytek is a game developer behind the incredibly popular Crysis franchise. Typically, the company develops high-end video games that sell for $50 or $60 per copy. Crytek announced a while back that it was working on a new online free to play FPS title called Warface.
Sony, Google, Crytek and others have thrown down the gauntlet to game developers, challenging them to integrate open-source map data into games, boost the usability of casual gaming, and come up with new second-screen titles as part of a new UK innovation event. The IC Tomorrow Digital Innovation contest sees five categories proposed, with Sony, Google, Crytek, Intel, and Odeon Cinemas all setting challenges that range from cutting the amount of time it takes to create virtual worlds in games, through to integrating technologies like WebRTC and NFC into online titles.
Crytek is the company behind some of the most popular PC and console games ever launched including hits such as Crysis. Another of the popular games that Crytek offers is the free to play title Warface. The downside for Xbox 360 gamers in the past was that the game was not available on consoles.
We were teased with Crytek's newest game last month, called Ryse, but today during Microsoft's E3 presser, we're seeing a first-look at the game, having a peek at some of the gameplay in a new trailer. Gamers will be able to experience the rise of the Roman Empire through the eyes of a Roman soldier, and as expected, the graphics look stunning.
Crytek's latest games, called Ryse, had been announced in the past, but very few details were unleashed at that point. Then again, details are still scarce today, but we at least now know that the Kinect-enhanced hack-and-slash game will be coming exclusively to the Xbox One and will be officially unveiled at E3 next month.
Crytek is looking to reunite Darksiders with its original creators, Vigil. The company hired 35 of Vigil's employees after the company failed to receive any bids back in THQ's original auctions. Crytek launched a new studio in Austin, Texas called Crytek USA and housed all of the Vigil employees there. Crytek USA is currently headed by Vigil's old co-founder, David Adams.
NVIDIA has released its latest WHQL-certified GeForce drivers, this time bumping it up to version 314.07. These new drivers are pretty much based on previously-released beta drivers, and the new 314.07 update brings a slew of performance improvements to Crysis 3, as well as a handful of other games.
