Crytek today lays claim to an impressive record by announcing that their free-to-play title, Warface, has set a new Guinness World Record. The game entered the record books for having the most players online simultaneously on one online shooter server. The record was set on a Saturday, January 26th, when 145,012 players in Russia were enjoying Warface on the Moscow-based Alfa server.
The record-breaking play session was coordinated by Mail.Ru Games, a leading internet service provider and online games publisher who operate Warface in Russia. The news that over 145,000 Russian Warface fans enjoyed the game simultaneously follows on from the announcement earlier this month that the game has attracted over 9 million registered users in Russia during its first year online.
