Free-to-play shooter Warface coming to Xbox 360

Crytek's free-to-play PC shooter Warface is coming to Xbox 360. IGN published the exclusive reveal trailer showing the game's four classes in action, though we're pretty sure this isn't from the 360 version.

Warface isn't quite as free-to-play on Xbox 360 as it is on PC (where it's still in beta); you need a Gold subscription to enter the fray. It's a foggy distinction which seems to vary by the game, as World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition will at least allow Silver members a trial edition (via Polygon).

Warface's co-op missions and team-based versus modes will both be available when the game arrives on Xbox 360 in early 2014. Oddly, neither Crytek nor Microsoft have announced Xbox One plans for the game, but we wouldn't be surprised to hear of them soon.

    If you have to pay for Gold, then this is not free-to-play. The whole idea is to draw someone in whom would otherwise not invest time and money into something. If someone likes a FTP game, they would most likely move up to paid games as well as the premium services that coincide with them. Why not reserve special features to members with Gold? Have a Gold exclusive class, or weapon or what have you. Not to keep on about the console wars, but (as far as we know) the Sony's systems won't require a subscription to play free-to-play games. Without the free part these are just... games.

    I thought sony announced that playstation plus would be required to play multiplayer on ps4? That being said, any F2P game on ps4 would also require a subscription to PS+ Just the same as a f2p game on xbox360 would require Gold.. for the online multiplayer aspect of it.

    No, They confirmed F2P games will be exempt, I would think games you already pay a subscription for would be too, but I don't know if that part is confirmed.
