Crysis Warhead Available for PC Starting September 18, 2008

There's one more good news that will make gamers happier. Electronic Arts and Crytek GmbH announced today that Crysis Warhead, the next installment in the award-winning Crysis franchise, has shipped to retailers in North America and Europe and will hit store shelves and participating digital download services starting September 18, 2008 exclusively for the PC. Crysis Warhead takes place alongside the events of last year’s original Crysis, with players taking control of Sergeant “Psycho” Sykes. Crysis Warhead won't require the first Crysis to be installed, it's a standalone game. Electronic Arts will charge $29.99 for it. “The launch of Crysis Warhead marks a significant milestone for the entire Crytek family,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. “The team at Crytek Hungary has delivered a dynamic and intense single player experience more than worthy of the Crysis franchise, while the multiplayer team in Frankfurt has revisited and extended multiplayer in the Crysis universe with Crysis Wars. They are both great representations of our studio’s core values of technical excellence, craftsmanship and quality.”Source: Crysis Warhead

Got to give it to EA, they know how to milk a franchise big time, this is just a mod of the original, this time more vehicle orientated, it could have been released as a mod pack. :laugh:

I cant decide if I should just get a retail copy or download it from D2D. Either way I'll be playing it tomorrow :rockout:

Nah, it is EXACTLY what the original should have been. A beautiful, OPTIMIZED, $29.99 first person shooter that makes you love PC gaming.

Supposedly it uses the same DRM that Spore uses which allows you to install 3 times. People are very unhappy about it as I am sure many of you will be. A lot of us change our systems often and it will suck to have to call in all of the time and possibly lose our purchase if EA lets us down.

a bit of hyperbole maybe.
I think it will be a good game. Not great, but will be fun. I enjoyed the first one, so i will certainly enjoy this one.

So, any confirmation on the DRM scheme being used. $30 is actually very reasonable, so if it doesn't have some ridiculous DRM scheme ala spore, I'm gonna pick this up.
