Hot. EA’s put out a bit of software that allows you to get an install back on your copy of Crysis Warhead. The game allowed five installs originally.

In the latest Crysis monthly update it is revealed that a new patch and level editor for the game are in the works and although no specific time-frame is given they will arrive “sooner rather than later.”
“The Editor and SDK are being worked on and will be available for release in the new year, we currently don’t know when this will be, but good progress is being made and we’re hoping it will be sooner rather than later. Crysis Warhead will receive a patch in the new year, it’s almost finished thanks to some hard work from the Warhead team, so thats something to look forward to.”

On GameTV.cz. It’s the game’s entire intro movie, and looks very pretty indeed. Gamespot gave this a 9/10 this morning, so if you’re looking for something to play this weekend and you own a computer, it’s either this or WAR. Or both.
Take a look.

Should you need any more indication that Crysis Warhead is worth the money, Gamespot’s posted a review score of 9/10. Snip:
Warhead’s single-player campaign should take you no more than six hours or so to complete, but not only does it invite multiple play-throughs, it costs only $30–and doesn’t require you to own the original. In other words, there is no reason why anyone with a capable PC shouldn’t play Crysis Warhead. It’s more focused, it’s more intense, and though it doesn’t provide as much of the sandbox feel as Crysis veterans would wish for, it still delivers on every other front. Play this game.
We’re properly sold. Full thing through the link.

God. Here we go again. This GameExtract piece is carrying an image supposedly taken from the install process of Crysis Warhead which includes the line, “The first end user of this License can install and authenticate CRYSIS WARHEAD on a set number of machines.”
No idea if this is legit or not, but seeing as how SecuROM protection appears to be EA policy, it very well may be.

Crytek and Valve confirmed overnight that you’ll be able to buy Crysis Warhead over Steam. Good news.
“The millions of gamers logging into Steam every week to play today’s best PC games are going to love Crysis Warhead,” said Crytek boss Avni Yerli.
“Crytek Hungary has done a terrific job creating this new experience while optimizing CryEngine 2, and we’re looking forward to delivering it and the original Crysis as our first offerings on Steam.”
The game’s out next week, and is attracting very positive reviews so far.
Full release after the link.

For $30, Crysis Warhead is an incredible value, and you’d be hard pressed to find a better shooter on the PC this year. The single-player campaign is tight and superb, and the multiplayer portion delivers something that you can just in and play and have fun with. I love the intelligent gameplay of Warhead; this isn’t a game where you simply react to highly scripted events, but one where you have to think on your feet, and you’re rewarded for doing so. Crytek once again proves that its one of the premiere shooter developers in the industry, even if it does get an unfair rep as being “just” a technology company. Comments like that make it seem as if the Crytek had a chip on its shoulder, because it addressed almost every complaint about Crysis and then some. I found Warhead to be challenging, exciting, wild, and, yes, very much full of swagger and fury.
Crysis Warhead is probably the Back to the Future II of videogames: rather than totally transform the story and setting, it returns to the original narrative, exploring it from a different angle; once again, the results are sharper, meaner, and have a lot more for you to think about (although, thankfully, there are no dodgy CGI sharks or Elisabeth Shue performances). The original Crysis may have given you the basic tools, but Warhead allows you to really use them, and while its previous titles made it clear that Crytek knew technology like few others, it’s this strange off-shoot Warhead that proves it’s no slouch when it comes to level design and set-pieces either.
This is apparently out next week now, where it was supposed to be released today. We can wait: sounds awesome.
IGN’s video review is after the break.

According to this piece:
With its budget price and improved multiplayer, there’s more than enough here to cheer nay-sayers.
One of the most striking things about Warhead is the way it shakes the template Crysis snowglobe and has its constituent parts drift and settle into surprising new patterns. In Crysis encounters with enemies were heavily cordoned off from each other, in Warhead anything goes.
It’s a frenzy of intelligent and original level design, far away from the Far Cry model that Crysis aped.”
There’s more through that CVG link. The game’s out this Friday in Europe.

According to this GSW story, EA’s going to announced a “Warhead PC” next week, a machine specced to run Crysis: Warhead out of the box.
It’s going to cost $699, says the site. Basic specs are:
- CPU: Intel Core Duo e7300 (@2.66GHz)
- Video card: Nvidia 9800GT
- RAM: 2GB
Plenty more through there. No idea if this is ever going to make it to the UK or Europe.

EA’s confirmed that Crysis: Warhead’s complete, as you can see on the official site.
“Today both Crytek and Electronic Arts are extremely happy to announce to the community that Crysis Warhead and Crysis Wars (the multiplayer package included with Warhead) have gone gold,” says the update.
“Both will ship to stores on September 12th in Europe and September 16th in North America.”
So hooray for that.

EA has announced its Games Convention line-up revealing that Harmonix’s Rock Band 2 will be shown for the first time.
EA reckons it’s “best ever product line up for European consumers this holiday and in 2009″ and as we’ll be able to confirm that for you when our full coverage gets under way tomorrow.

Never before has EA had such a diverse and powerful slate of offerings, and it’s been great to see consumer and critical response to our games,” said Jens Uwe Intat, senior EA VP.
“As more and more people come into interactive entertainment, we are ready with the best games in sports, action, casual, horror, simulation, and online. We’ll be bringing more new games to market this year than in our history, and Leipzig is a great European window to showcase those offerings for the broad range of people that love to play them.”

EA’s put out a new Crysis Warhead trailer, showing the chances of it failing are pretty slim. Looks awesome and focuses squarely on combat, hopefully at the expense of trying to be “clever.”
The game’s set on the other side of the island to last year’s Crysis, following Psycho instead of Nomad. Psycho says, “Let’s just kill it” in this movie, which gives us hope.
It’s out next month. After the break.
Thu, Aug 14, 2008 | 06:42 BST
As you can see from the video after the break, Crysis Wars is heavy on the vehicles, and there’s talk in the Q&A of new environments, new multiplayer modes, and so on. Read and watch.

EA just confirmed that Crysis: Warhead will hit North America on September 16 and in Europe on September 12.
Americans can pre-order from the EA Store now for a paltry $24.95.
“We think Crysis Warhead is going to offer a tremendous experience to a wide range of gamers,” said Crytek boss Cevat Yerli.
“Fans of Crysis are going to enjoy more of the open-ended gameplay, cutting-edge visuals and huge, epic battles from the first game, while also finally finding out what kind of havoc Psycho was wreaking on the other side of the island.
At the same time, we designed Warhead to be more accessible for gamers new to the Crysis franchise. It is a game with a story that can stand on its own, it has been optimized to run better on a wider range of PCs, and we are introducing Crysis Wars, a tailor-made experience for multiplayer gamers within the Crysis universe – all at a great value.”
