) has announced the release of a Crysis Wars (the multi-player version of EA's Crysis Warhead) server for Linux. Crysis Warhead is an expansion to the original Crysis game and was released for Microsoft Windows in September.
No Crysis Wars client is available for Linux and this server release does depend upon the Windows game files, but if you're interested it's now available. We don't anticipate seeing a Crysis Wars / Crysis Warhead Linux client either considering the game's engine uses a DirectX 10 (with version 9.0 fall-back) renderer and we haven't seen any other Crytek game clients published for Linux.
The announcement along with the link to this first release of the Linux server for Crysis Wars can be read at Icculus.org
. Ryan has yet to provide any update on the Linux Prey client
with either the retail binary that's still not been released or an updated demo. We also have no idea on when Ryan Gordon will release the Unreal Tournament 3 Linux client
, which is quickly approaching
its one-year anniversary.
