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.

At the lower resolution the GTX 285 performs well against the HD 4870 X2, but as we get to 2560 x 1600 we see both cards perform very similar. Compared to the GTX 280, we also see a small FPS increase which does actually manage to result in around the 10% mark NVIDIA claimed.
