Crytek shooter named best FPS by leading games site, Inven
Adding to its growing list of accolades, Crytek GmbH's free-to-play shooter, Warface, was this week named Best FPS at the G-Star expo by a leading South Korean gaming site.
A panel of judges from popular website, Inven, decided that Warface stood head and shoulders above its rivals at G-Star and was worthy of top spot in the competitive FPS category. The Inven Award: BEST FPS Game G-Star 2012 follows on from Warface being named Best Social/Casual/Online Game at gamescom 2012 and Best Game of 2012 at Russia's KRI Awards.
G-Star takes place in the South Korean city of Busan, and attracts around 200,000 visitors each year to discover games from across Asia and beyond.
