Crytek-developed Warface sets Russian record for simultaneous players

MMOFPS Warface has seen over 1 million players register

Publisher Mail.Ru Group has announced that its Crytek-developed MMOFPS, Warface, has set a Russian record with 28,000 players competing simultaneously. As of May 10, 2012, Warface boasts over 1 million registered users in the region.

"We are extremely satisfied with the Warface results and we are happy that the hard work done by our team over the title has been so fruitful," said Vladimir Nikolsky, vice president of Mail.Ru's Game Division. "We intend to keep up the good work and make Warface not merely a successful game, but also a huge brand and a cybersport discipline, like we did with Cross Fire."

"We chose Russia to be the debut market for our title, since we have always had a great reception with Russian gamers and had great confidence in Mail.Ru Group's ability to achieve success. We are extremely happy with the launch, the great work from Mail.Ru Group and the massive effort from our development team and can't wait to let people around the world play Warface," said Crytek managing director Avni Yerli.

Warface's record builds on the success Mail.Ru had with its first MMOFPS, Cross Fire.
