Powered by the same Crytek 3 engine that powered Crysis 3, the game is currently undergoing beta testing for the PC. The game is set in the near future as a group known as Blackwood is causing havoc for profit. Players can jump in as one of four soldier classes - Rifleman, Sniper, Medic and Engineer - to drop into co-op missions across the world as part of the Warface team.
Warface also supports versus multiplayer modes including classics like Team Deathmatch and Free For All as well as new spins like Storm and Plant the Bomb.
"We’re thrilled to be partnering with Crytek to introduce this award-winning PC franchise to a console audience for the very first time," Microsoft Studios VP Phil Spencer said in a statement. "Our relationship with one of the world’s most talented developers continues to grow, as we bring 'Ryse: Son of Rome' to Xbox One, and 'Warface: 360 Edition' to Xbox 360."
No word on an Xbox One version of Warface yet but the initial userbase of the next-gen console may be the hold up. World of Tanks is currently in beta testing for the Xbox 360 and Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi says it is possible the free-to-play WWII tank game would come to the Xbox One after the console sells
a few million units."
