Gamers who didn’t have a heavily upgraded PC in 1997 to play the original Crysis will be happy to know that EA and Crytek have decided to release the game via Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.
While no official release date was given, EA says it is coming this October and will be remastered using CryEngine 3, with new lighting, effects and other visual improvements.
“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.”
The game will be available for $19.99 or 1600 MS Points.
