Crytek and Nexon prepare for the ongoing growth of Warface across Asia

The successful growth of Crytek's free-to-play FPS, Warface, is set to
continue this week as the game enters its Open Beta phase in South Korea.

Operated across the country by leading online publisher NEXON Co. Ltd.,
Warface has proven a hit with South Korean players during its Closed Beta
phase, and was named Best FPS at the 2012 G-Star expo by popular Korean gaming
site, Inven.

"Warface is finally launching in Korea after making its Closed Beta debut in
September last year," said Jung-Bae Lee, Director of Publishing at Nexon. "We
will challenge the FPS game market with the game's unique content and strive
to match the expectations of Korean gamers waiting for an authentic FPS
game."

"The popularity of free-to-play gaming in South Korea has been a source of
inspiration for Crytek, and we couldn't be more excited to see Warface
entering an important new phase in the country," said Joshua Howard, Executive
Producer, Warface. "So far, the reaction to Warface from players has been
extremely positive. Alongside Nexon, we look forward to sharing the game's
unique action with many more gamers across South Korea, and inviting them to
enjoy the thrills and spills that have already captivated players in the
Closed Beta."

The news that Warface is entering its Open Beta phase in South Korea comes hot
on the heels of the announcement that the game attracted nine million users
during its first year online in Russia.
