CRYTEK AND EA BRING CRYSIS TO XBOX LIVE AND PLAYSTATION NETWORK
Guildford, UK. – September 9, 2011 – Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) and award-winning developer, Crytek GmbH, announced today that the critically-acclaimed Crysis® franchise will debut a new experience on Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation® Network. In October 2011, shooter fans will be able to download a modified and enhanced version of the award-winning single-player campaign from the original Crysis, remastered for console players using Crytek’s state-of-the-art CryENGINE®3 with all new lighting, effects and other visual optimizations. For just £15.99 SRP or 1600 Microsoft Points, gamers will download the most robust and exciting Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network game to date.

In 2007 and again in 2011, critics around the world hailed Crysis and Crysis 2 as titles that ushered in the next-generation of gaming with jaw-dropping visuals, industry leading technology and groundbreaking sandbox gameplay, featuring the super-powerful Nanosuit. Today, the original, award-winning 2007 single-player campaign has been remastered for Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network with optimized Nanosuit controls, fine-tuned combat and full stereoscopic 3D support.

“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.”

In Crysis, gamers will travel to 2019 where a team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. Now with hope rapidly fading, the US and North Koreans must join forces to battle the alien menace, fighting epic battles through stunning, photorealistic tropical jungles and frozen landscapes.

But it's not an XBLA game. It's going to be like how Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica will be. Just a full downloadable game.

You seem to forget what sort of XBLA game it is. This isn't some sort of Braid or Castle Crashers.

Having never played Crysis (nor having the PC to do so), I'm interested.

I hate to admit it, but I'm a graphics whore in denial.

This will be rather interesting. Everyone says that Crysis 2 is dumbed down for consoles. Well, this is a remake of the original in CryEngine 3 on the consoles. So, if the game isn't scaled down any in terms of level design....

I dunno, I just think this is going to be really interesting. Having played the original on my PC, it'll be fun to see how this turns out on the console. CryEngine 3 is impressive on consoles.

Those games are allowed to be GoD games because they were retail releases elsewhere.

I get what you're saying, but it's still $20.00 for a four year old game and only 12 Achievements (I assume). I'll play the demo.
