The original Crysis came out in November 2007 and it was exclusively released for the PC. The game was well known because it incorporated an “Ultra” settings mode, and at the time not many computers were able to run the software in this mode. Still, for the past few months there have been many rumors about the game coming to consoles and many people were wondering how this could work, especially considering that the PC was the platform of choice because it meant superior hardware to run the title.
Electronic Arts confirmed these rumors, stating that a remastered version of the game will be coming out for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next month. It should be noted that the title will be running on CryEngine 3, the same graphics engine used to develop Crysis 2. Moreover, this version of Crysis will be a downloadable game for Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, but it’ll only include the single-player campaign. In any way, this campaign is being remastered so many new graphical effects will be featured along with improved controls and 3D support for both systems.
The remastered Crysis game will be released on October 21 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and it’ll cost 1600 Microsoft points and $20 respectively.
