A free to play team shooter built in CryEngine 3 is actually a pretty exciting prospect, even before you factor in the giant mechs. If Warface is fast and accessible enough it could beat Call of Duty a its own game, providing a prettier experience for no money. Perhaps. It's still too early to tell, but it looks like have a chance to get our hands on an early build soon. Crytek are hunting alpha testers right now.
