Crytek unveils PC and mobile cross-platform gaming service GFace

Famed first-person shooter developer and CryEngine creator Crytek has announced it’s currently putting together GFace, a new social gaming network for PC and mobiles.

Essentially a combination of social networking services and games player, GFace will run completely in browser and allows you to add friends, post interests, use embedded video chat, and a drag and drop party creation system.

Let's get together

Most importantly, the service is set to give OnLive a run for its money by using its own cloud-based streaming service for games.

GFace will be able to scale online multiplayer experiences depending on the devices players are using. One example given is a PC player acting as a soldier, while another player acts as air support from their phone and a commander oversees all the action on his iPad.

More information on GFace and how to get involved with the ongoing closed beta can be found at the official site.
