Gamescom 2013 has come and gone in Cologne, and Crytek are happily reflecting on a great showing at the world's largest games convention.
Among the attendees at this year's trade fair were four lucky winners who shot their way to glory in Warface and walked away with brand new iPads. Entering a special competition in our replica Chinook helicopter, each winner had to outgun the enemy in our free FPS as they attempted to prove themselves the ultimate soldier. And with thousands of players trying their hand at Warface over the course of the weekend, that was no small order!
To the brave souls who walked through a hail of enemy bullets to emerge victorious – we salute you! On Thursday, the first iPad went to Sebastian Feldhaus, who was followed on Friday by Jeroen from the Netherlands. Saturday and Sunday produced another expert warmonger in the form of Axel Seecamp, who snapped up both iPads and completed the list of triumphant entrants as our true Warface champion.
As well as congratulating our winners, we'd like to say thank you to each and every person who entered the competition – as well as the many players who took the time to come and check out Warface. We had a great time meeting everyone and were very excited by your passion for the game!
A brand new Warface Closed Beta phase is now up and running, which you can sign up for right now by visiting www.warface.com. Soon you could be sampling the game's engrossing cooperative and competitive gameplay with fellow FPS fans – which is a win no matter how you fare in battle!
