First 'Crysis' game becomes console download
Monday 12 September 2011
Crysis, famous for making even the most advanced computers groan in agony upon its 2007 release, will emerge as an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 download this October.
The game's sequel was released as recently as March 2011 on PC and consoles, though with benchmark busting ability curtailed to accomodate older console technology.
The console version is touted by original developers Crytek as being an "enhanced and modified version."
It boasts improvements to controls, combat, and visual effects, though the likelihood is that concessions will be made elsewhere, given that the Xbox 360's hardware dates back to 2005 and the PlayStation 3's to 2007.
The download is to fetch 1600 Microsoft Points on 360 and $19.99, £16.99 on PS3.
For Crytek, it further establishes the validity of the CryEngine tech, after Epic Games challenged them to prove it could work on console - just as their own Unreal Engine powers the Gears of War, Mass Effect and Batman: Arkham series among others.
