The Escapist PAX 2008: Crysis: Warhead Hands-On Preview

The Escapist writes: "Crytek was kind enough to provide me 30 minutes of hands-on time with Crysis: Warhead, the upcoming stand-alone sequel to last year's graphically-intensive first-person shooter. Due out on September 16, 2008, Warhead fleshes out Crysis' unfinished single-player storyline by illuminating the activities of Sergeant Michael "Psycho" Sykes, one of the original game's secondary characters.

Crysis drew acclaim before and after its release for its hardware-intensive, visually astounding graphics, so it's certainly no surprise that Warhead is a stunningly beautiful game. The two levels I played featured familiar environments: a lush, tropical setting and a frozen-over wasteland, both populated by hostile North Korean forces or extraterrestrials. Both were gorgeous and impressive. Crytek indicates that they haven't recycled a single area from Crysis and all of Warhead's environs will be new to the player."
