Crysis Warhead Set for Release September 16

Crytek has announced that Crysis Warhead, the follow up to last year's graphical stunner Crysis, is set for release in North America on September 16 and Europe on September 12. Moreover, if you're planning on purchasing Warhead, Electronic Arts (the game's publisher) has announced that you can pre-order it on their online store and pay $24.95, five bucks less than the normal price.

But that's not all -- also announced was Crysis Wars, a new multiplayer feature in Crysis Warhead that'll come with three modes of play: InstantAction and PowerStruggle from the original Crysis, and the new TeamInstantAction mode that, obviously, adds teams to the mix. Crysis Wars will include 21 maps in total, including six new maps for TeamInstantAction and InstantAction, and one new map for PowerStruggle.

yea crysis warhead is a pararrell story to crysis (read it happen at the same time )

so instead of play as Norman side of the story @ crysis

you would be playing as psycho the other guy from the delta team in crysis warhead he was in the other side of the island

I haven't finished Crysis yet.. does the story relate to one another? or I can just play this without having to finish Crysis first to be able to follow the storyline?

You didn't finish Crysis? Give yourself a pat on the back and skip everything after the ice comes in, you won't regret it. Really, that last bit is just one of the worst designs I've ever seen. And don't even talk about the "plot".. Can you say Halo 2?

Both. Crysis Warhead is the same events as Crysis, but you play as Psycho instead of Nomad. The stories basically intertwine, but you can play Warhead and still know what's going on.

Crysis is still worth finishing though!
