FRANKFURT, Germany – June 2, 2016 – A futuristic threat is buried within an ancient pyramid in Anubis, the expansive new Special Operation coming today to Crytek’s free-to-play online shooter, Warface.
Anubis – named after the god of death himself – is an epic three-stage co-op mission set in Eastern Africa, where players must battle hard, smart and as a team. Gamers must work through a network of bases, culminating in an assault on a pyramid, to disrupt Blackwood’s villainous operations.
The action comes thick and fast from the moment the team is inserted into the landing zone, where enemies are at the gate of a missile facility. After infiltrating the complex and disabling the control room, defended by deadly automatic turrets, players must repel assaults from all sides as they battle through a canyon to reach a heavily fortified dry dock. Then it’s time to blow up a Blackwood submarine. Once this objective is completed, players take the fight to the heart of Anubis’ pyramid, which houses a clandestine cyborg factory. Gamers must disable the facility and then survive waves of relentless attacks as a sandstorm engulfs the battlefield before extraction.
The new Special Operation’s three diverse stages require players to combine the strengths of the game’s four different classes to take on and eliminate a wide range of enemies. Gamers must adapt their tactics for each stage, from clearing out buildings at close-quarters to holding a defensive line in the face of marauding cyborgs, if they are to complete this action-packed new mission.
Anubis is the latest co-op Special Operation to launch for Warface. New maps, missions, weapons, items, weapon skins and challenges are regularly added to the game as Warface evolves to serve its ever-growing community.
