Update R39.1 is here – see what’s new

20 DEC 2016 16:00 GMT

We keep the new content coming thick and fast in Warface, and our latest update once again features a whole lot of gun-toting goodness to get your teeth into – this time with a festive twist. Check out what's new in R39.1 below.

Bag and Tag Icebound

Get ready for hunting season to open on our all-new Bag and Tag map, Icebound. Set amid the snows of Siberia, Icebound challenges you to take out enemies then make off with their dogtags as you fight your way to PvP supremacy. With fiery forests, frozen lakes, and a functioning radar tower, the map offers a feast of tactical options to explore and – for the next few weeks – comes gift-wrapped in an extra special festive form. Watch the tactical overview below.

SMG-9 Ares

Alongside Icebound, update R39.1 introduces the SMG-9 Ares sub-machine gun – a new weapon for Engineers that combines speed and style. In fact, the ferocious 1120 RPM is the highest of any firearm in Warface. So, if spraying bullets like they're going out of fashion is your idea of a good time, look no further than the SMG-9 Ares. See all the details here.

Festive Fever

We've always loved getting into the seasonal spirit here at Warface HQ, and our latest update continues the tradition in style. Highlights this year include a Daily Login giveaway between December 21 – 25, Lucky Boxes in the store featuring our new Evil Santa weapons, Christmas-themed versions of TDM Hangar, TDM Oil Depot, and Icebound – and more. Get the full rundown of just how hard we're hitting the holidays right here.

What else is new in R39.1?
