Warface playable first in the UK at Eurogamer Expo

Plus: Crytek hosting a Warface developer session.

The developer sessions schedule for this year's Eurogamer Expo continues to take shape. We still haven't announced all the developers, so there are still gaps on the developer sessions schedule page, but if you ask me those gaps just make the shape it's all taking look even more exotic and attractive.

But hey, to the matter at hand: one of those boxes we're gradually filling in as we gain approvals from speakers and their publishers is filled by Crytek! Producer Peter Holzapfel will be on stage at 4pm on Saturday 29th September to introduce Warface, the studio's brand new free-to-play shooter.

Holzapfel will be showcasing the amazing tech behind the game and also shedding some light on why Crytek, traditionally associated with big-budget boxed games like Crysis 3, is heading into the free-to-play arena.

As well as hearing from Crytek about the studio's plans and ambitions, and seeing the game showcased on our massive 7.1 ultra mega nuclear surround AV cinema system, you can also sample the game yourself for the first time ever in the UK. Warface will be running on 20 PCs, showcasing new PvE and PvP missions.

It's also part of this year's massive Eurogamer Expo show floor, which also features the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Assassin's Creed 3 and many others.

The Eurogamer Expo runs from 27th-30th September at Earls Court, London, and you can find out more about it on the official website.
