Crytek has launched their free-to-play shooter Warface onto Steam amid recent reports from Eurogamer that the company is facing financial difficulties including cancellation of Ryse 2 and employee payments being delayed by months.

Warface, a first-person shooter built on Crytek's CryEngine, has done exceptionally well in the Russian region, however has struggled in the past with other parts of the world. It has been considered as one of the high profile bets that Crytek hoped would achieve success when the studio transitioned over to a free-to-play mindshare, however has now proven to be a disaster instead.

Today's launch sees Warface becoming available on Steam to players in Australia and New Zealand among others like North America, Europe and Turkey. It is available in English, French, German, Turkish and Polish. While it is available in Australia, Crytek has confirmed that there are no local servers, somewhat defeating the purpose of launching a FPS into the local market.

Warface franchise director Hasit Zala said he hoped the Steam launch would target a new audience for the game. "Bringing Warface to Steam paves the way for a new audience to discover the game's engrossing cooperative and competitive action; completely for free," he said.

"As well as putting the power of CryEngine to work, Warface draws on Crytek's FPS expertise to ensure players are immersed in the heat of battle - whether they're jumping in for a quick game with friends or dedicating more time to the game's extensive multiplayer modes."
