Yesterday, we reported on the surprise launch of Crytek’s Warface for Nintendo Switch in Australia, with wide release on the way. Now, Warface is indeed available widely, including in North America, and we’re allowed to talk freely about the embargoed details. For starters, this is the first game on Nintendo Switch to use CryEngine, using a “heavily customized version” that is “running locked in 30FPS/720p in TV mode and 540p in handheld and tabletop modes.” And importantly, online multiplayer and voice chat are supported without subscribing to Nintendo Switch Online.
The game has an official Switch trailer now from publisher MY.COM and its in-house development studio Allods Team, which was responsible for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.
Warface on Nintendo Switch uniquely supports gyroscopic controls and HD Rumble. The Warface: Titan update, which includes the SED playable class, is part of this game at launch. This update extends to the other console versions as well, bringing full content parity to the game on all platforms.
Along those lines, All PvE missions are available for this title launch, “as well as 5 PvP modes (Team Deathmatch, Free For All, Plant the Bomb, Storm, Blitz), 3 Special Operations (The HQ, Cold Peak, Earth Shaker). Players will be unlocking new content and game modes every week.”
If you weren’t sure about Warface yesterday, are you sold on it now, with all this content, no Switch Online requirement, and CryEngine? Let us know!
