Free military action game Warface has made a surprise debut on Switch, after launching on PC in 2012 and on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018.

It's not been announced through official channels, but free multiplayer shooter Warface has begun rolling out across the Nintendo Switch's regional eShop.

The 7GB download combines aspects of Call Of Duty with The Division through a class-based multiplayer and maps based on real-world locations, as well as other scenarios that include a zombie outbreak in Chernobyl or a robot army on Mars.

It derives revenue from a range of optional microtransactions, which can be used to smooth player progression and unlock various events and equipment.

Warface first appeared on Nintendo's Australian eShop, alerting Switch users to its global rollout.

Developed by Blackwood Games, previously part of Crytek Kiev in Ukraine, Warface is published by Russian Internet giant Mail.RU through its myGames division.

While neither the Call Of Duty nor The Division franchises are available on Switch at this point, Warface joins a number of other well-recommended shooters, such as Overwatch, Doom, Wolfenstein II, and free sci-fi multiplayer ninja game Warframe (not to be confused with Warface), alongside the ubiquitous Fortnite. – AFP Relaxnews
