Korean publisher Nexon has announced today that the company has come to an agreement with Crytek to distribute their free-to-play persistent online shooter Warface in South Korea and Taiwan. Nexon will take all of the responsibilities of operating and marketing the game in those regions.
Warface is Crytek’s first persistent online shooter where players take on military roles in an extensive PvE (player vs. environment) world that will include co-op missions. The game also features a fully featured class-based PvP (player vs. player) mode as well. The game runs on the developer's highly touted CryEngine 3 engine.
Nexon CEO Min Seo is confident that his company can handle Warface due to its extensive experience in the online space. “We are very pleased to publish the first online game of Crytek, leaders in high-quality FPS games. With our experience and knowledge in running online FPS games, we will do our best to present top-notch environments for users to enjoy high-quality gameplay sessions,” stated Seo.
Warface will be launching sometime in 2012.
