Crysis Warhead updates and refines the gameplay of the original game through a sidestory 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 also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized version of CryEngine 2 using full DX10 extensions and is the first game developed by Crytek's Budapest studio.

Warhead sees good gains when compared to the single card. The game is actually now playable at resolutions right up to 1920 x 1200. Compared to the NVIDIA offerings it ultimately wipes the floor with the GTX 285, but does sit fairly far behind the GTX 295.


Optimum Setup- Crossfire gives us a good boost in performance. What we can see here is that we're able to play Warhead at 1920 x 1200 with the in game settings at high.
