More info concerning the Mod SDK and Editor scheduled for release on Friday March 20th:
The time has finally come for us to release the Mod SDK and Sandbox2 Editor for Crysis Wars later this week. It will be made available at the same time as Crysis Wars Patch 1.4. In order to get the Mod SDK working properly you must have patch 1.4 for Crysis Wars installed, since it comes with the ingame mod support and other important changes to the game.

In order to keep the community focused on just one modding area based upon the same engine version, we decided to make the AI in Crysis Wars available again and concentrate on supporting this game with editor and SDK. Together with most of the assets from Warhead which are included in Patch 1.4 we are confident that the community will benefit the most out of it by keeping singleplayer and multiplayer modding and level creation to one game.

Crysis Wars Mod SDK Content
The entire Mod SDK consists of 2 separate installers, one will include all the tools and the other will have the game source code. Here you will find a rough content list for the entire Mod SDK package for Crysis Wars. A detailed list will be provided on release this week!

* Exporters for Max and XSI
* Game Source Code
* CryENGINE2 Sandbox Editor
* Various useful tools and applications for modding
