Crytek bringing Warface to Eurogamer Expo

Brighton, UK, 5th September 2012: Eurogamer Expo, the UK's biggest and best gaming festival, is pleased to announce that Crytek will be bringing free-to-play first-person shooter Warface to this year's show in a big way.

Warface will be playable for the first time in the UK at this year's Eurogamer Expo on 20 PCs showcasing new PvE and PvP missions. The development team will be on hand throughout the show, which runs from 27th-30th September at Earls Court, encouraging sign-ups to the Warface beta and giving away free goodies to attendees.

Then on Saturday 29th September at 4pm, Crytek producer Peter Holzapfel will be on stage in the developer sessions auditorium to lift the lid on the game's development and explain, among other things, why the renowned German developer has decided to go free-to-play with Warface.

"We're delighted that the Eurogamer Expo will be the first place UK gamers can go hands-on with Warface," said Eurogamer Operations Director Tom Bramwell. "Crytek has gone in a bold new direction with this game and we think gamers are going to enjoy playing it and learning more about why it's been made this way."

The Eurogamer Expo will be returning to London's Earls Court from 27th-30th September 2012 and is expected to welcome over 50,000 gamers. Tickets are available now at www.eurogamerexpo.com.
