Crysis available on consoles – today!

Do you remember when Crysis was released? It was only five years ago, and it was such a Big Deal. Oh, how times have changed. EA and Crytek have now worked together to bring the original Crysis to consoles for the first time – and instead of it being a full retail box release, you’ll be able to grab this one withiout leaving the couch.

Starting today, Crysis is available for purchase on Xbox LIVE Games On Demand and PlayStation Network, for 1600 Microsoft Points and $29.95 (RRP).

Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek explains:

We’re really excited to bring the legendary Crysis to gamers who weren’t able to experience it the first time around. The CryENGINE 3 has allowed us to remaster the single-player campaign and make significant advancements to the gameplay. We’ve added a new lighting system, some advanced rendering techniques and most importantly, we’ve optimized the Nanosuit controls to utilize its full potential on a gamepad. We really hope that gamers will enjoy playing the game as much as we’ve enjoyed developing it.

The game has been revamped to take advantage of the CryENGINE 3 technology, meaning you’ve got improved Nanosuit gamepad controls as well as some finely-tuned combat, plus the whole thing – of course – looks amazing, complete with full stereoscopic 3D support.

Considered by many to be the PC game that signalled the start of the Next Generation, Crysis is a landmark title – and now it’s available for you to explore for the first time, on your console of choice.
