    Gamers will be able to play Crysis Wars for free between Friday, October 10 and Sunday, October 12, announced the publisher, EA Games. Registration begins Monday, October 6 at MyCrysis.com, where gamers will be provided with a unique registration key. Though online play will only be available from October 10-12, players will be able to experience Crysis Wars via LAN across the week of October 6. This move by EA can be seen as something along the lines of Valve, which has seen boosts in sales of their popular multi-player titles such as Team Fortress 2 and Day of Defeat: Source, following free weekend offers.

    Crysis Wars is a multiplayer combat action game that is included in the Crysis Warhead package. It is based around the same island setting as the rest of the Crysis franchise, and offers gameplay modes such as InstantAction, TeamInstantAction and PowerStruggle. It includes 21 large thru small maps based on the gameplay mode. You get to use all the weapons and vehicles from the single-player Crysis titles.

    Crysis wars is fun, it's just, I suck at it reaaaally bad. It's fun loading a ton of people into a car and driving it head first into something though. Takes me back to the tansport heli crashes in Bf2 :p

    The Battlefield map is just sick for this game and it's good for new players. It's basically team deathmatch with weapons pick ups and plenty of vehicles.:)

    If you had a more powerful video card you should be able to play it. Any plans to buy a new one, also what slots do you have?

    Not really, no. I'm not that into gaming anymore anyway. I am thinking about buying like a hd3450 or something though.

    No I mean I can handle very high physics with my cpu but it has to be on a dx10 server for physics to work in game and no one plays on dx10 servers.

    Having problems with the Crysis Wars file(its a .rar file) after it was down DLing, i clicked setup and it says the mia.lib file is missing, and that a reinstall might fix the problem but i am not wait for 5.5GB to get done DLing again. I opeing the ,rar by using bitzipper, i am pretty pissed because i had to wait so long.
