Crytek's free-to-play shooty shooting game Warface (opens in new tab) is already open for business in Russia and China, and after a long Western beta period, it will very soon open shop over here too. Monday 21st October is the launch date to write on your face in military crayon, though you can sign up in advance (opens in new tab) if you already know what online handle you're going to use. (Something with the word 'face' in it, presumably.) To mark the occasion, Crytek have released a 'going live' trailer, below, though they've neglected to include Philip Schofield and Gordon the Gopher (opens in new tab) .

Warface, of course, recently came in for a kicking over its dismally designed (opens in new tab) female soldier avatars. Have Crytek come up with some more fitting attire for the game's Western launch?
