If you are a frequent PC game player, and you own Steam, chances are you have seen the game Warframe pop up on your Steam browser at some point. Or, perhaps you have been following the game for some time, and were eager to give it a spin.

It was a little over a month ago I gave some impressions of KingsRoad - a free to play game from Rumble Entertainment that's playable through Facebook or Rumble's own online service. The browser based game is an action-rpg in the same vane as Diablo or Torchlight but is designed to be played in shorter sessions. Since last month, the team has added a new class, the Wizard, and made several enhancements to the game world. Today the game is available for anyone to try - though it's still technically in beta - and the team is treating it as a KingsRoad's coming out party.
Attention adventurers: Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception’s multiplayer mode is now available as free-to-play! But if the multiplayer isn’t something you’re interested in, you can now buy any game mode within Uncharted 3 as individual purchases, or all together as a complete package.
For hardcore gamers, Free To Play, has an almost negative stigma associated with it. Combine that with the word "Facebook" and you're looking at the double whammy of disgust. It's not hard to see why, with titles like Farmville begging for social sharing and clicks and other titles cheapening the experience by asking you to pay for gratification. But there are some gems out there that are bucking the trend, the latest is a game from Rumble called KingsRoad - a hack and slash RPG that's playable via Facebook or Rumble's website.
Warface, the upcoming free-to-play PC shooter using the CryEngine 3, recently entered closed beta in the West. Despite being out in some territories like Russia (and boasting over 5 million players already), the game is still undergoing to steps leading up to launch everywhere else.
Path of Exile, a PC Action RPG, entered open beta today. The servers were wiped clean of all closed beta characters just a few hours ago, and there should be no more character wipes, even when the game officially launches. While similarities to Diablo II and other ARPGs can be clearly pointed out, Path of Exile stands apart from the crowd in several ways, including its unique skill system where skills are attached to gems (not the characters) and can be modified with other gems.
Firefall has been in beta for what seems like forever, but up until this point, you had to have been accepted to try out the five player co-op game. This weekend though, that's all about to change, as Red 5 Studios is opening up the servers for anyone who signs up. The beta kicks off at 10AM PST on January 25th and will run until 11:59PM PST on January 27th. It's a short beta, but you'll definitely want to check it out to get a feel for the free to play shooter.
Warface is still on its way to North America...sometime. But at this point the game is already out in some other territories, namely Russia. The Crytek Engine 3 powered free to play game on the PC is boasting some impressive numbers already, with over 5 million active players. According to Crytek, Russian players voted it the best online game in Russia as part of the Runet Awards; which were designed to honor the best Russian-language based games on the internet.
Some basic gaming mathematics: Crytek plus Free plus Co-op = Joy! Warface is the gamefication of this joy, as the free to play 5 player co-op shooter is currently in Beta, but should be on PC for all to play very soon. The game is designed to reward players for individual skill, but also for teamwork. Check out the new trailer that highlights the co-operative elements.
