The first shots are being fired in the Warface closed beta


Trion have flicked the switch and now those beta servers are thrumming away, something they should continue to do so until the free-to-play FPS launches this spring.

The game already has more than five million registered players in Russia and developer Crytek say the wars (and the faces) over there are coming along wonderfully.

If you haven’t yet registered, there’s still a chance you can sign up for a tour of duty. I hear that if you visit the game’s official site they’ll issue you your kit without even making you take a physical.
