Crytek’s free-to-play shooter, Warface, yesterday received the 2012 gamescom award for Best Social/Casual/Online Game. The award, determined by an independent panel of international judges, was one of just seven official gamescom awards given out to pay homage to the best games and products premiered at the show.
Cevat Yerli, CEO and founder of Crytek said:
“We’re excited that Warface has been recognised with this award. 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. This award underlines what we saw on the show floor in Cologne; that Warface is being viewed favorably by everyone looking for something new in online multiplayer gaming.”
Scheduled to enter its Beta testing phase in Europe and North America this Fall, Warface will be accessed via social hub GFACE at launch, providing players with exciting new ways to interact as they discover the PC game’s challenging competitive and co-operative online multiplayer modes.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
