In September, Crytek's multiplayer first-person shooter Warface was re-released on the latest generation of consoles. Over the following two months, 5 million players had registered to play the game on these platforms and publisher My.com is celebrating this milestone with the announcement of the next content update coming to Xbox One. The free Cold Peak content update will bring along a new PvE co-op Special Operation, a new PvP mode, and five new maps when it arrives next week.
The content update is named after the new Special Operation, Cold Peak, which takes place across three acts. Players are tasked with infiltrating the Blackwood guarded facilities in the Siberian mountains after satellite coverage is unexpectedly interrupted. The snowy weather conditions create low visibility and turn it into what is promised to be "one of the most difficult co-operative missions in Warface".
The new PvP mode is Domination, something familiar to players of many renowned FPS franchises. Players need to capture and defend key positions on the map. There's also five new maps that each come with their own game mode, such as Air Base, Factory, Fortress, and Residence. Players won't have long to wait until they can get their hands on the Cold Peak update as it's due to be released on November 27th.
In the meantime, Black Friday has kicked off a range of discounts on weapons and premium currency that will last until the scheduled server maintenance on November 27th. Crytek has also increased the rate of XP, VP and WF$ by 50% throughout the weekend — the event is already running and will end at 09:00 UTC on November 26th.
We've got the full list of Warface achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
