Warface is one year old! And to celebrate, it’s blasting off to Mars. The “Warface Mars” update, previously released for PCs earlier this year, is now live on consoles. The update costs nothing, but the Season 3 battle pass (which does cost something) has been released alongside it.
You’re here to rescue human colonists from the attack of the evil Blackwood military organization (no association….we think), but for the sake of your own safety, you’re not visiting the Red Planet using your own body. Instead you’re remotely controlling SEDs — armored humanoid robots.
Gameplay strategy will differ somewhat when you’re a robot. For one thing, your weapons don’t take ammunition….they’re energy-based and require charging. Watch out for new enemies led by two never-before-seen and formidable bosses. Work together to navigate the vast Martian desertscape and play through sections that sometimes require action, sometimes stealth.
The “Mars” experience will also feature modified gravity that will affect movements as well as stealth episodes that will reward team cooperation. Players will also encounter extremely dangerous bosses never met before: heavy mining droids Antaeus-6 firing machine guns, Martian SED-2, spider mines that follow the target upon detecting it, and a final unique boss, larger than anything players fought in the game. The key to success in the mission is well-coordinated teamwork and strategic approach to the game.
And more is on the way….Warface developer Blackwood Games is working on crossplay support between PS4 and XBox One players. The feature is expected to launch in the second quarter of 2020, and all PvP modes and co-op raids will support crossplay.
The “Mars” update is now live on all versions of Warface — PS4, XBox One and PC.
