Storm
This assault mode puts one team on the offensive as they aim to capture three strategic points in succession. The other team has to defend their ground, and sides are switched when the time expires or all the points are taken. These battles are longer, suiting players who desire conquest and strategy.

Design & Technical Fixes:
> Switching from primary/secondary weapon to grenade via d-pad left, and then throwing the grenade now changes to last weapon used rather than primary weapon by default.
> A number of issues causing crashes have been fixed
> A few tutorial strings have been revised for better direction
> Improvements on the streaming of Leaderboard statistics
> A lot of UI elements overlap, minor string changes, and minor functionality fixes.
Warface will be exclusive to Xbox LIVE Gold members, but the title will be available to download for free.

Thanks to all of the community members who brought this update to our attention.
