Crysis Warhead® (2008)

About This Game

The sharp images and first-person shooter action from the original Crysis emerge in an exciting new form with the new Crysis Warhead expansion for your PC.

You play Sergeant “Psycho” Sykes, a supporting player in the first Crysis, who now takes center stage. Investigating a North Korean island with your team, you encounter a horrifying alien force. Strap on the game’s famous Nanosuit and face down attacks from any direction. Use the cloak setting to slip past your enemies or jump right into the center of combat to crush the threat directly.

The Crysis Warhead storyline features a fresh take on the story of the original Crysis, delivering all of the excitement and energy that you’ve come to expect. Thrilling combat scenes put you in the middle of the mayhem. Experience improved vehicle handling as you take control of tanks, helicopters, and more. New weapons inflict enhanced damage on your enemies, while multiplayer modes let you team up with your friends.

Crysis Warhead is a standalone release and does not require ownership of Crysis to play.
