Warhead playable at GC 2008
As a world premiere at this year’s Games Convention in Leipzig, the public will be able to get a first, hands-on experience of Crytek’s recently announced “Crysis Warhead” which is the new installment of its multiple award winning blockbuster Crysis, at the EA Booth (Hall 3, B02). Players will also be able to test Crysis Wars which is included in the Warhead box, at the Intel/ESL Booth (Hall 3, B30/1 - /6).
The GC is Europe’s largest games convention. Spread over four halls, the industry shows the public the games and products it now offers or is planning to bring onto the market soon after, and usually does so with enormous presentational effort, big shows, loads of celebrities and all sorts of gimmicks to entertain its visitors.
This year Crytek has a big presence at GC. Our staff will be available to you across 3 booths where you will be able to play through the demo level of Warhead and also get some game time on our new Multiplayer package, Crysis Wars, which is included in the Warhead box.

Crysis in Concert
For the first time in its history, on August 20th 2008, the Games Convention in Leipzig will host the VGL, an immersive concert event featuring music from the most popular video games of all time. Top orchestras & choirs perform along with exclusive video footage and musical arrangements, synchronized lighting, solo performers, electronic percussionists, live action and unique interactive segments to create an explosive entertainment experience!
As part of their show in Leipzig they will be playing some of the most powerful tracks from the Crysis OST. If you are attending be sure to book your seat now as it is bound to be a sell out show.
We hope to see lots of you guys visiting our booths and playing the game for a little while. So be sure to come up and say hi. Enjoy the show!
