Everything you need to know about military shooter Warface as it enters Early Access on PS4 today

Warface is coming to PS4 this fall and today we’ll talk about the game and get a deeper look at some of its features that created a community with over 50 million members. With Early Access starting today, PS4 players from around the globe get a chance to become part of this community.

PvP and PvE

First things first, let’s talk about the key features that make Warface a unique product for its genre. While most other shooters are either strictly PvP or PvE-oriented, Warface offers a mix of the two modes. Players can choose to sign up either for competitive action from random to ranked matches, or join forces with allies against the swarming AI-controlled Blackwood hordes.

A word about Blackwood: cunning yet practical, this villain organization is in constant search for the ways to bring the world to heel. It’s up to players to decide how the story is told – learning your enemy is a complex task here: enemies are presented in a wide variety of units, from basic to advanced infantry, weaponized turrets and cyborgs. Speaking of the latter, players will encounter plenty of them in one of the special operations, codenamed Anubis.


Your character classes

Another feature that is essential to be mastered in Warface is teamplay. Classes play a crucial part in regards to teamplay and Warface has four of them available: Rifleman, Medic, Engineer and Sniper. Each of these classes have their own weapons of choice, pattern and style of gear.

Again – It’s important to play for the team in Warface, so classes are situational and can be changed (should be changed, in fact!) during the PvP matches depending on the needs of the team. Same thing works with PvE mode where you should carefully pre-select your class before entering the raid.

There are currently five Early Access packs available, four of which are tailored to the needs of each class, while the fifth one is the Collector’s Edition that includes the contents of all other packs and additionally provides a pistol, knife and premium in-game currency.

Early Access packs are a chance for players to get a good head start with certain exclusive weapons and their respective premium golden versions with enhanced visuals and stats.


The maps

Another important part of gaming content are maps. Well-balanced maps are the foundation of competitive online gaming and Warface would feature 8 diverse locations for players to explore.

Players can choose from closed locations like Bunker, Black Mamba or Shuttle, featuring a train station allowing for multiple tactical opportunities. Players that are accustomed to fighting in narrow city streets would not be disappointed too with maps like Downtown or Streetwars.

At last there are two maps that are best suited for strict competitive play allowing for the main official Warface tournament PvP mode – Plant the Bomb.

Yard 2.0 and Bridges 2.0, combined with a wide variety of weapons as well as mastered teamplay could become jumping point for many future esports players and casual players that want to improve their skill. The maps feature renewed textures, improved gameplay and perfected balance.


The last feature that we wanted to talk about today are game modes. There are 8 PvP modes developed to best suit the needs of players. Looking to annihilate the enemy?

Team Deathmatch brings two diverse locations to fight in. More of a lone wolf? Put your skills to the test in Free for All — you shall find no allies or mercy here. Plant the Bomb and Storm add new twists to already familiar gameplay, and require not only tactical execution skills but strategic planning at high level.

These are just some of the features that we wanted to discuss today, and yet there is so much left – slides, PvE tactics, weapon choice.. We will discuss all of those in future posts and for now we invite everyone to take part in the Early Access and be among the first console players to explore the vast world of Warface!
