Crytek, the developer behind the original Far Cry and the Crysis series, has announced a new game today, titled Warface.

Warface will use Crytek's proprietary graphics engine CryEngine 3 and will be a PC exclusive multiplayer shooter. Co-op missions will also be a key feature, though there's no mention of any singleplayer content.

Interestingly, Crytek will release Warface as a free-to-play shooter and is looking to target the Korean and Asian markets specifically.

'Our passion is to always deliver the best gaming experience possible,' said Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli. 'That's why we opened our Crytek Korea office in 2008, which today enables us to offer a game that is tailored to suit its market. We're excited to debut with Warface in South Korea and to deliver a compelling and truly unique experience soon.'

Warface doesn't yet have any release date, nor has Crytek confirmed how the game will draw profit - though advertising or micro-transactions seem to be the obvious routes. Crytek has said the game will feature customisable player classes though.

Below are the currently released screenshots for Warface - let us know your thoughts in the forums.
