Warfare, a free-to-play first-person shooter game developed by Crytek, is now available on the Nintendo Switch. This game was first launched on PC in 2013 and made its way to Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and now Nintendo Switch.
IGN spoke to Warface’s franchise lead at My.Games, Ivan Pabiarzhyn, and Alexandr Shimov, project manager on Warface’s console versions, about what Nintendo fans can expect from this new title on Switch.
“While we had some basic rumble support already in the Warface Xbox One and PS4 versions, we had to adapt it for the Switch Joy-Cons,” Shimov said. “The tactile feedback from shooting and receiving damage feels completely different. We also implemented motion controls support, since they’re very useful for making precise shots. And we made them customizable through the menu options, so players can finetune them to their taste.”
In October 2019, Warface’s Facebook page said they are planning on having the crossplay feature ready “starting from Q2 2020,” at least on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. “Launching crossplay between consoles is one of our priorities and we are already working on that,” Pabiarzhyn confirmed. “And yes, crossplay with the Nintendo Switch version is part of our roadmap.”
Warface, which has “over 80 million players worldwide, allows players to battle with over 200 realistic customizable weapons in over 50 multiplayer maps, PvE raids with co-op. According to some reports, Warface on the Switch runs at 30FPS/720p in TV mode and 540p in handheld mode. Additionally, Warface is playable online without the need for a Switch Online subscription.
