Ready to Face War?

Hot on the heels of the news that Warface has entered Closed Beta, Crytek have released another tempting morsel to convince you to sign up. Fresh from the studio is this Closed Beta trailer, showing off that CryEngine 3 goodness in glorious detail.

Published by Trion Worlds through their Red Door platform, Warface offers two modes of play. Competitive PvP sees teams battling it out against each other for dominance, while co-op PvE creates a random daily challenge intended for teams of 5 players.

The Weekly Marmot

ZAM's very own Lore threw down yet another great episode of The Weekly Marmot this week, where he discusses one of the biggest features of the recently released World of Warcraft Patch 5.1 Landfall - gear upgrades.
