Crysis Wars is part of Crysis Warhead, the follow up to Crysis, one of the highest rated games of last year and winner of Editor’s Choice Awards from IGN and GameSpot. Crysis Wars includes three diverse multiplayer modes, InstantAction, TeamInstantAction and PowerStruggle, with 21 diverse maps ranging from large battlefields to smaller, more intimate battlegrounds.

The Holiday Map Pack contains two new multiplayer maps:

• Savanna: The large savanna plains in the neighborhood of the Victoria falls provide ideal maneuvering grounds for heavy armored vehicles. The North Korean army has found out about this training facility and launched an attack on the US forces. This large map is perfect for 24-32 players.

• Frost: As the Alien invasion progresses, new crash sites are discovered around the globe. In the region of Trondheim, NK and US battle it out for new energy sources. This small map is great for 8-16 players.
