When Crytek started the development of Crysis Warhead, their mission was not only to give gamers more of the action-packed, open-ended gameplay gamers latched onto in Crysis, but also to enhance CryENGINE 2 to the point where Crysis Warhead would show a marked improvement in performance from the original game.
And now with the launch of Crysis Warhead just a few days away, weâ€™re proud to announce a partnership that will give PC gamers a similar experience as an option. Ultra PC with feedback and consultation from Crytek and NVIDIA, will begin selling a pre-built system, the Ultra Optimized PC, featuring performance specs for only $699 at http://www.tigerdirect.com/go/crysis/ when Warhead ships on September 16th.
