Warface’s new PC update Blackwood lets you play as the enemy
MY.GAMES and the Warface team are proud to announce the release of the update called Blackwood, launching today on Warface PC version only and introducing the Special Operation with a new, open-ended mission design. Watch the gameplay trailer below:
Set on a volcanic island in the Northern Atlantic, the new Blackwood PvE mission continues the story of the WEGA-5 squad, first introduced in Operation Mars. The player’s squad has been captured by rival corporation Blackwood and are forced to fight against their own allies. That means that for the first time in the shooter’s history, players will be controlling Blackwood soldiers fighting against Warface corporation.
Operation Blackwood will also be the game’s first non-linear co-op mission. Players will be deployed at a starting hub location and are free to choose which of three enemy bases to assault first. Every base is guarded by a unique set of enemy troops, led by a powerful boss. Boss battles are packed with unique features. Players have to split up to perform fundamentally different tasks. Once players destroy one boss, the rest becomes more difficult to defeat. The difficulty sets the boss’s behavior and the tactics players will have to adapt to destroy it.
Rewards will change based on the order players attack the bosses, and resources can be collected to purchase heavy weapons, turrets and barricades during the operation. To get the maximum reward, players need to complete the operation three times so that each time the order to kill the bosses is different.
