The lights are on
On the day Valve announced six million concurrent users on Steam, German developer Crytek announced that five million players registered for Warface, the company's free-to-play FPS for PC. Unfortunately, no one sent Nintendo a memo saying today's number gloating is about millions of people, not hundreds of thousands.
Crytek and Trion Worlds are bringing Warface to Western markets, but no release date has been given as of yet. Warface also won a Runet Award this week. Runet Awards are handed out by the Russian Federal Agency on Press and Mass Communications each year to companies that contribute to the development of the Russian internet.
