Crysis Warhead has been out for little over a couple of weeks now, and those of you who've picked it up also got the chance to play its multiplayer component. For the rest of you interested in getting some free Crysis Wars multiplayer action, EA and Crytek are offering the full standalone multiplayer client as a free download at the site.

Users will be able to play the game over LAN connections starting today, without any time limitation, and play online for free during the entire weekend starting October 10. Crysis Wars includes three multiplayer modes - Instant Action, Team Instant Action and Power Struggle - as well as 21 maps of varying sizes and access to all the weapons and vehicles in the Crysis Universe.

This is certainly great news and might be enough to convince many to try the game - just be sure to check the official minimum system requirements after the jump.
