Man, CryEngine 3 is really good at rendering jungles. We recently got a look at Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, and we'll have our impressions of the game up later this week. Until then, check out that sexy foliage in the new trailer.

Warface screenshots have sliding, shooting and massive mech

Today I accidentally knocked over Owen's coffee, and SAW THE FACE OF WAR. It looked like this: >:(

All the soldiers in Crytek's free to play multiplayer shooter, Warface, make this face at all times, even in victory. Sadly they're all facing away from the camera in the three new screenshots over on RPS, doing soldiery things like shooting mechs from the cover of a shattered tree stump. One chap is firing and sliding simultaneously, one of Crysis 2's most common manoeuvres.

Warface will have class-based competitive multiplayer, co-op missions and a “constantly updated extensive PVE universe." It's built with CryEngine 3 as well, so it'll be Maximum Pretty. See for yourself in these carefully posed shots.

MechWarrior Online to be powered by CryEngine 3

Piranha Games and Crytek have announced that MechWarrior Online will use Crytek's CryEngine 3 for development on the F2P mech sim.

It's welcome news for gamers who feared that F2P MechWarrior would translate to "cheap" MechWarrior. CryEngine 3 powered Crysis 2, after all, and I'm sure I can't be the only one with visions of the MechWarrior: Living Legends mod for Crysis dancing through his head.

Become the bane of enemy soldiers who can't quite take cover properly in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. City Interactive will bring their CryEngine 3 powered sniper sim to PC next March. It'll hit Europe on March 16, and the US on March 20. The in-game footage above is taken from Sniper's Gamescom showing, and feels a lot like Call of Duty 4's Chernobyl level, in which you spend a lot of time dressed as a bush, being told what to do by another man dressed as a bush. But imitating greenery is the second most exciting thing about being a sniper. The first is the feeling of god-like power as you hover your sights over a distant, unaware foe. Expect plenty of that come March 2012.

Warface coming to the West in 2012

Crytek's free to play shooter, Warface was originally destined for the South Korean market. That made us sad, because it's built using CryEngine 3, and looks rather exciting. Happily, CVG report that Crytek have announced that it will be get a western release next year.

According to the blurb on the Warface section of the official Crytek site, Warface will feature "constantly updated extensive PVE universe full of dramatic multiplayer co-op missions, a full set of class based PVP and will be available for PC." It's out in 2012, which means that Crytek have at least four months to think of a better name.
