Crysis Warhead updates and refines the
gameplay of Crysis through a side story plot involving Psycho, one of
previous protagonist Nomad’s allies. The game is a parallel story that
follows Sergeant Michael “Psycho” Sykes, a character from the original
Crysis, as he faces his own trials and challenges on the other side of
the island during the time period of the first game. It features new
fully customizable weapons, vehicles and enemies, along with new
multiplayer content. It also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized
version of Cry Engine 2.
Crysis Warhead runs the same heavy engine that the famed Crysis runs, and the results show it. The GTX280/285 core scales nicely with clocks as the scaling between the GTX280, PNY GTX285, and XFX GTX285 are all quite uniform.
