'Warface' Sets Guinness World Record

Warface is an online FPS, a military shooter set in the near future offering a cinematic experience with next gen visuals, AI and physics based on Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE 3 game development solution.

Warface, supported by a free-to-play business model, provides gamers with a constantly updated extensive PVE (player versus environment) universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions, a full set of class based PVP (player versus player) and will be available for PC via Crytek’s free-to-play social platform GFACE.

Crytek's free-to-play title Warface has set a new Guinness World Record. The game entered the record books for having the most players online simultaneously on one online shooter server. The record was set on Saturday, January 26th, when 145,012 players in Russia were enjoying Warface on the Moscow-based Alfa server.

The record-breaking play session was coordinated by internet service provider Mail.Ru Games who operate Warface in Russia. The news that over 145,000 Russian Warface fans enjoyed the game simultaneously follows on from the announcement earlier this month that the game has attracted over 9 million registered users in Russia during its first year online.

“Warface stands out from other shooters for many reasons,” said Vladimir Nikolsky, Vice President of the Games Division at Mail.Ru. “The fact that it’s created with CryENGINE® 3, its exciting co-op and versus modes, and the constant updates to the game world all set it apart and have helped to ensure its popularity with players and press. We’d like to thank everyone who has supported Warface so far, especially our players, who made this record possible.”
