Free Crysis Wars Next Weekend

EA and Crytek announce that they are offering the chance to play Crysis Wars for free next weekend, giving everyone a chance to sample the enhanced Crysis multiplayer play included with Crysis Warhead, Crytek's first-person shooter follow-up. Beginning Monday, those willing to register on MyCrysis can download a Crysis Wars client and get an activation key to allow online play from Friday, October 10th at through Sunday, October 12th. This sparked our curiosity over whether this was intended to promote Crysis Warhead or perhaps an indication that a standalone Crysis Wars release was being considered, so we asked EA about this, and were told: "There are no plans at this time to make Crysis Wars a separate, standalone product."

wildone, yeah that's one reason I still love playing Quake1 netquake. Its the last FPS game I know of that doesn't use predictive net code. You never, ever, see someone else jerk from their own lag.

I still want to punch John Carmack for coming up with the idea of client-side prediction. I'm sure someone else would have done it, but still, he started the whole fiasco.

That said, some games have done it reasonably well. What is ironic is now that broadband is so widely available, predictive net code just isn't needed. So while in 1996 a fantastic online game that actually did need predictive code didn't have it, now games that don't need it, use it badly.
