The PC version of Crytek's free-to-play first-person shooter Warface will be released on October 21, the developer announced today. A final round of beta testing for Warface concluded last month.

Warface will be released on Xbox 360 in 2014. Though it will be "free" on Xbox 360, players must have an Xbox Live Gold subscription ($50/year) to play.

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.

Crytek claims the game--set in the near future--offers a cinematic experience with next-gen visuals, artificial intelligence, and physics.

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."
