Warface Claims Top Title in Russia’s Prestigious KRI Awards

Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter, Warface, stole the show at the Russian Game Developers Conference this week after being recognized with two top prizes in the prestigious KRI Awards. The game – developed at Crytek’s Kiev studio – not only received the honor of being named “Best Game 2012” by the judging panel, but was also winner in the competitive “Best Graphics 2012” category.

The KRI Awards take place as part of the Russian Game Developers Conference each year, and are the only Russian awards handed out by industry professionals to recognize developers in Russia and other CIS countries.

Crytek’s PC game Warface is a military shooter in a near-future setting. It offers a cinematic experience with next gen visuals, AI and physics based on Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE® 3 game development solution.

Mail.Ru Games sets new record with Warface

Mail.Ru Group’s top-tier MMOFPS Warface – developed by Crytek – has recorded preliminary operating results that set a new record in Russian game market history. Within the first four weeks of operation the title’s CCU is already on par with Russia’s most successful games, shooters and MMORPGs alike: 28,000 players have been simultaneously fighting for the future in the AAA-shooter from one of the best FPS creators in the world. According to Mail.Ru Group’s market analysis, it is an unprecedented result and it took from several months to a few years for competing titles to reach a similar level of performance. As of 10th May 2012, the number of registered users in Warface exceeds 1 million.

With Warface cementing its status as a rising star on the market, Mail.Ru Group has further strengthened its leading position among Russian MOFPS publishers – a position the company has held since the launch of Cross Fire.
