Ahead of its Sep. 18 release date, military shooter Warface is dropping on the PlayStation 4 today, according to publisher My.com. There will be five early access packs for the online FPS available on the PlayStation Store before the full free-to-play version arrives.
Warface originally launched in 2013 for the PC and later in 2014 on the Xbox 360 before being discontinued and shut down. The online FPS lets players participate in Player versus Player (PvP) and Player versus Environment (PvE) game modes, both online. Players can either compete against each other in ranked matches or battle AI opponents in a cooperative Blackwood horde mode.
The first four early access packs are dedicated to a specific class—Rifleman, Medic, Engineer, and Sniper. Each of these packs will be available digitally for $24.99, with 20% off for PS Plus members and come with a weapon, skin, and in-game currency. The fifth pack, the Collector’s Early Access pack, bundles all of the content from the first four for $74.99. The early access packs are the only way to play the game before its September release.
My.com details several features in the game, including:
Exciting PvE missions and raids:
At any time players can go on a fast and dynamic mission or test their strength in a full-scale raid—a special operation with several levels of difficulty. Complete tasks in various parts of the world, from the snow-capped Siberian mountains to the hot jungles of Africa, fight with numerous enemies under the control of AI and disrupt the sinister plans of Blackwood corporation!
Warface offers an impressive arsenal to sate the taste of any connoisseur: hundreds of weapons are available, pick any and outfit it with a range of scopes, grips, flash guards, suppressors and other attachments to get the best performance tailored to each playstyle.
Plant the Bomb PvP:
Teamwork is the key to detonation in this mode. One team tries to plant the bomb in the enemy base, whilst the other team tries to defuse it or wipe out the attacking forces. Both teams alternate between sides, whilst only one will achieve planting perfection.
Battle Royale PvP:
The PvP mode reflects the very essence of Warface. It is a fast-paced and very dynamic experience from the first-person perspective. Armed with melee from the very start, players quickly go through a looting phase, diving straight into battle. There are more than 70 different weapon models available in the mode, with each action-packed game lasting between five and seven minutes.
The early access version of the game will see content updates before and after the game launches. Updates include raids, new game modes and maps. Warface will also release on the Xbox One later this year.
