Crysis Heads to War In September

So we’ve got a release date for Crysis Warhead, the… yep, I’m gonna say it. You can’t stop me from saying it… expandalone for last year’s system-eating FPS. It’s September 16th – in America. In Europe, it’s September 12th.

Which is a) great news for we oft-second-fiddle Eurotrash and b) steeeeeeeyoooooooooopid – or at least it is so long as you subscribe to the theory that staggered release dates can increase piracy. It’ll be an interesting situation to watch, at any rate.

Clearing Up Crytek Confusion

Some PC fans arrive at Crytek HQ seem to have gotten some clarity out of Crytek over their platform plans for the Crysis series. Crysis Warhead was long in development as a PC exclusive before studio boss Cevat Yerli announced they were going multi-platform.

However, from now on their games will be released across the range of platforms, obviously still including the PC. Crytek’s business manager, Harald Seeley, added,

Crysis Warhead Is “PC Exclusive”

Remember when Crytek said they’d no longer be developing any PC exclusives? They weren’t being entirely honest with their future selves. Crysis Warhead is for PC only.

So those times when we were away from him? We’ll be finding out what happened. It seems things were far more interesting over the other side of the island, with better weapons, new vehicles and improved graphics. Nomad is going to be pissed when he finds out.

Confusion and quotes below.

The Crysis Videogame Features Splenditudiral Polygonal Images Of Tanks.
I was passing through the ‘Gaf when I noted some chattering about Incrysis discovering Crytek had registered a new trademark and another website. The name in question? “Crysis Warzone”. Apparently, this brings four marks/sites having been registered – alongside Wazone we have Crysis Warhead, Crysis Wars and the brilliantly suggestive World In Crysis. One of them will clearly be the inevitable console version. Others could just be Crytek not deciding exactly what to call their inevitable console version. But – we suspect – not all of them. Whatever could World In Crysis actually be, eh? Speculation: Go!
