Trion Worlds recently announced that it will be publishing Crytek’s Warface, a free-to-play social first-person shooter, in North America, Europe, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand. The game is currently live in Russia with two million registered users, and won awards at the Russian KRI Awards for Best Game and Best Graphics.
CEO and founder of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, had this to say: “Trion is the company spearheading a revolution in gaming through delivering premium online games across big genres powered by a proven, cutting edge platform. The combination of this platform, GFACE and Warface shows Crytek’s commitment to finding innovative new ways to bring superior gaming experiences and AAA titles to gamers. That’s why we are creating strong strategic alliances with the best online publishers across the world.”
Dr. Lars Buttler, CEO and founder of Trion Worlds, said, “Crytek has repeatedly proven their foresight and they are doing that again by leading the shift towards delivering high-quality, free-to-play, online games. We are very impressed with Warface and Crytek’s commitment to polished gameplay, amazing graphics, technical excellence, and real innovation. We very much feel that we are kindred companies and stand strong together.”
