Cologne (Germany) August 23, 2012 – Crytek’s free-to-play shooter, Warface ® , yesterday received the 2012 gamescom award for Best Social/Casual/Online Game.

“We’re excited that Warface has been recognised with this award,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and founder of Crytek. “At its core, Warface is a new social first-person shooter experience that invites players and their friends of all levels to come together and discover Crytek quality for free.
