Play Crysis Wars for Free Next Weekend

By Chris Faylor, Oct 03, 2008 10:08am PDT Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Crytek have announced that gamers will be able to play Crysis Wars (PC) for free between Friday, October 10 and Sunday, October 12. Included in the recent release of Crysis Warhead (PC), Wars represents the newly-debuted multiplayer component of the open-island sci-fi shooting series.

Registration begins Monday, October 6 at MyCrysis.com and will provide users 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.

"We have been extremely pleased with the reception we have received from gamers and press for Crysis Warhead," said Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli.

Team Fortress 2 developer Valve has repeatedly noted the sales boosts that free weekends can bring for multiplayer-focused titles such as Team Fortress 2 and Day of Defeat: Source.

Yerli added: "Crysis Wars is definitely a big reason for this success and something we are dedicated to, not only as a part of future Crysis titles, but in terms of releasing new modes and continued support for our growing community."

Check below for a listing of Crysis Wars' contents:

  • Three diverse multiplayer modes including InstantAction, TeamInstantAction and PowerStruggle
  • 21 maps ranging from large battlefields to smaller, more intimate battlegrounds with a diverse array of settings ranging from beaches to graveyards
  • All weapons and vehicles released within the Crysis Universe
