The free-to-play online shooter was previously only announced for PC.

Warface isn't likely to be entirely free-to-play on Xbox 360, as players must have an Xbox Live Gold subscription for online multiplayer through the platform.

Warface is Crytek's first free-to-play game. The PC version of the game is in development at the company's Kiev outfit and runs on CryEngine 3. It is not clear which studio is developing the Xbox 360 version.

Warface is a military shooter set in the near future, and Crytek claims it offers a cinematic experience with next-gen visuals, artificial intelligence, and physics. It is currently in beta on PC.

Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli defended the game's free-to-play model last year.

"We know that free-to-play games have a bad image," Yerli said at the time. "They have a bad reputation; 'it's pay to win, it's low quality.' I completely get that, but we are making free-to-play that's high quality. It's CryEngine 3; it's a big investment."
