'Warface' (ALL) Celebrates 3rd Anniversary With Operation Black Shark Update

by Rainier on Oct. 27, 2016 @ 7:18 a.m. PDT

Warface is an online FPS, a military shooter set in the near future offering a cinematic experience with next gen visuals, AI and physics.

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, as well as Steam.

In Operation Black Shark, players infiltrate a gargantuan skyscraper which is being constructed by Blackwood, the military arm of a cabal of supranational corporations. Fighting as part of an elite squad dispatched by Warface – the special-operation forces formed to oppose Blackwood – players must battle hard, smart, and as a team to work their way through each enemy-flooded floor before bringing the tower down. Gamers will take on Blackwood’s finest troops, lead-spitting automatic turrets, and a relentless horde of cyborg warriors in an all-action tower raid that demands players evolve their tactics on the fly. The new Special Operation arrives in a game update today, which also adds new achievements for players to unlock and weapons to use in-game.  

Development never stops on Warface, and the game – which marked its third anniversary of action in North America, Europe, and Turkey last Friday – has evolved dramatically since launch. Operation Black Shark arrives in the game’s 37th major game update and today players can enjoy over 50 PvP maps in eight game modes and, counting all variations, use over 400 weapons in battle. In the last twelve months alone, content which has expanded the game has included eight PvP maps and the Anubis and Earth Shaker Special Operations, alongside weapons and skins, including Crysis-inspired Nanosuits. In addition to graphical improvements and gameplay balancing, Warface has also introduced the integration of EasyAntiCheat and FairFight systems to make the battlefield a fairer place for all players and officially supported Warface as an esport through a partnership with ESL – the leading esports event provider – with cash prizes available every week.

Ilya Mamontov, Director of Game Operations, said: “As we celebrate three years of Warface, we’re excited to roll out Operation Black Shark, our latest co-op PvE Special Operation. Warface has come a long way in three years and has grown and changed enormously, guided by player feedback. We’d like to thank our ever-growing community for coming along with us on this journey, and we look forward to continuing to serve them as we add content and evolve the game in the months and years ahead.”
