Crysis dev's free-to-play shooter opens to the public on October 21

Crytek's multiplayer shooter Warface will go live to the public on October 21. The PC game went through a couple of closed beta periods, and the final one commenced in August. Players can sign up for the game ahead of time on its official site.

Warface is expected to pave the way for Crytek's free-to-play ambitions, as CEO Cevat Yerli said in February that the developer and GFace service provider plans to go fully free-to-play within five years. To help its cause, the developer is bringing Warface to Xbox 360 in early 2014, where online play will require a paid Xbox Live Gold subscription. Crytek also opened an Istanbul studio in January to support its free-to-play mission.
