Crysis 3 may break graphical boundaries on console

When the next Crysis game releases, you just know that it is going to be there or there abouts in terms of matching some of the best console graphics that will be seen in 2013. However, Crytek are feeling very confident indeed by already confirming that one of their primary objectives for Crysis 3 is to make it the best looking game in gaming history period.

It goes without saying that this is a bold statement indeed, but after seeing what Crytek were capable of with the first Crysis game on PC that blew everyone away, who’s to bet against them in saying that they won’t be able to achieve their goal?

Crytek’s Director of Creative Development Rasmus Højengaard made the statement in a recent interview with GamerZines. As well as aiming for the best looking game ever made, he revealed that Crytek are also looking to ‘push’ the technology as much as possible. It may seem a bit optimistic after mixed opinions about Crysis 2 which arrived on console, but there’s no doubt that the first gameplay trailer released for Crysis 3 is nothing short of mouthwatering.

The visuals are looking first class and dare we say it puts Modern Warfare 3 to shame in a direct comparison of graphics quality. The game will utilize the new CryEngine 3 and along with The last of Us, it looks like we have two upcoming games (on PS3 anyway) that will seriously push the boundaries on what the PS3 can still produce, eight years on since its launch back in 2006.

Watch the announcement trailer below for yourself and tell us if you think Crysis 3 is on the right track in becoming ‘the best looking game ever’. If you disagree with Crytek, what game do you think currently owns this title? There’s no word on if this is PC graphics we’re seeing here, or console. Perhaps Crytek will shed some light on this in their next reveal for the game.
