A public beta of Crytek's free-to-play shooter Warface will be available to download on Xbox 360 today, Microsoft has announced.

The beta offers Xbox LIVE Gold players the first opportunity to check out the online shooter ahead of its full release, and the chance to try their hand at all four Warface classes: the Rifleman, Medic, Engineer and Sniper.

Microsoft says that the game will receive "regularly updated content" once it launches in full this spring, including a "continuous supply of new maps, weaponry, boosts" and "new, daily co-operative campaign missions".

To get in on the beta, head through to the official Warface website to register.
