McKool proudly presents the full version of The Mutant Factor, a single player modification for Crysis and Crysis Wars. This is a new single player campaign with a completely different story and a new set of characters. The Mutant Factor is heavily influenced by the Half-Life, Crysis, and F.E.A.R series of games. The player takes the roll of Phoenix, who is sent to investigate strange energy readings at a remote North Korean facility. While on the island, he begins seeing visions of his long lost daughter, Tara, which starts a cascading spiral between reality and possible insanity.After a horrific and bloody battle, he awakens to find himself trapped in an underground facility with only the voice of Dr. Marie Shepherd to guide him out....or is she the only voice? Ask yourself: Do you trust her?
Hello everyone, There will be yet one more update to The Mutant Factor coming very soon!

This update, like the last update(v2.5), is more about aesthetics and does not change any of the gameplay.
This time around, I have played with lighting in the last 2 maps going for a more dramatic look.
There is one room that always bugged me before because I was never able to get a look I liked without adversely affecting performance.I finally decided, with a great deal of reluctance, to change the ceiling texture which allowed me to focus the light source more like a spotlight. As you can see in the comparison shots, this looks much better but doesn't use any additional light sources.
I have included a couple of comparison screenshots to demonstrate the difference that relatively minor change makes.
I hope everyone likes the changes!
