Console players will finally get the chance to play Crytek’s award-winning Crysis next month, according to Electronic Arts. A modified and enhanced version of the original Crysis will be brought to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live and will run $19.99 or 1600 Microsoft Points.
“We are extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish with Crysis. We set out to create a next-generation FPS and delivered a PC experience that became a benchmark for quality — and still is for many gamers even four years later,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek. “By bringing the single-player campaign to console, we believe we are again setting a new standard for quality in downloadable gaming.”
Crysis was launched in 2007 on PC to much acclaim for its visual polish and unusual gameplay. Taking place on a small island in the South China Sea, Crysis shows the evolution of the now-famous Nano suit. It was widely regarded as the new standard for graphics and design.
The sequel, Crysis 2, was released this past March on PC and consoles, marking the first time Crytek brought the series to consoles. Crysis has been remastered using Crytek’s CryEngine 3, bringing the game up to the level of fidelity experienced in Crysis 2. Look for it October 11th.
