Crytek Warface up to 5 million players
Crytek's Warface has registered five million users in its Russian test market. The game, which is also scheduled for Asian markets, is coming west in the "near future" through Trion Worlds.

"With a combination of first-class visuals and gameplay that is second to none, Warface stands out from the crowd and promises to attract even more attention from players in the future," said Vladimir Nikolsky, VP of the game's Russian publisher Mail.Ru Group Game Division.

Warface also won a Runet Award, a prize given by the government for contributions to the Russian-language internet. A solid online match of any first-person shooter exposes us to a list of new naughty words, we just didn't know there were prizes for it.
