PC Gamer's most recent edition (169) included a CD with a new "exclusive" Crysis multiplayer map and map-making tutorial, along with its Crysis cover page.

The map-making tutorial video is about 9 minutes long and goes into deep detail of the sandbox editor. It appears to have been EA/Crytek made.

The description of the new multiplayer map called "Arctica":
"US forces have discovered a concentration of alien technology in a remote area deep in the pack ice region north of Greenland. Unforgiving weather and conditions and frequent incursions from North Korean assault units make controlling this site a formidable challenge."

Upon installing, four files are extracted: Arctica.xml, Arctica.dds, Arctica_Loading.dds, and level.pak. A combined size of about 20 megabytes.

I'm still trying to figure out how to check this level out in-game, I replaced the SP demo's island.files with that of Arcticas and I start a new game. I spawn in a bunker/armory similiar to the N. Korean one in the MP Beta map shore. The only reason I can't post some screenshots as well is because I get that "out of combat zone" warning and have 2 seconds to get back into the zone, so it keeps killing me and I keep respawning. Anyone know how I can disable that warning/kill thing that pops up? Anyone have any other ideas on how I'd be able to check out the sexy snow/ice shaders in-game? :)

fizix is there any way you can zip that up and and host it somewhere I would like to take a look at that. I may be able to get rid of it.

Another thing you might try is to load it up into the editor to get rid of the warning counter.

No, this is a mod.

maybe the "exclusive multiplayer map" is just supposed to go along with the editor tutorial, not an actual playable thing.

If it comes with the Arctica.cry file then you can open it in the editor and fix the kill zone points.

This is the one found in issue #169

fizix - the Arctica map is a PowerStruggle map and should be played with the MP demo.

The video is interesting they are using vers 1.1.1.5495 the Sept 14 2007 build in the game.
The video was done at Crytek on sept, 26 07 on machine pc6262.intern.crytek.de

Thanks for the info, maybe I can find that issue of PC Gamer over here. Is the CD in the same issue where Crysis was reviewed?
