If you have been keeping up with our news about Crysis, you will have heard last month that the popular 2007 first person shooter PC classic was making its way onto both the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles. Well the day for the launch has arrived and the game can now be downloaded, to commemorate the launch EA has released a console version trailer.
This year gamers were already able to experience some of what the Crysis gameplay first brought to gamers in 2007 on the consoles, with the release of Crysis 2. For those that missed out the first time around, you will now be able to purchase the game through a download on either the PlayStation 3 for £15.99 or on the Xbox 360 for 1600 MS points, quite the bargain considering it is a fully regenerated game.
The trailer which can be viewed below demonstrates just how much work has gone into making the game suitable for today’s consoles. The graphics are no worse than what you would expect to see from a new game from debris in the air to the lighting and the gameplay seems almost exact to that from Crysis 2. Crytek’s CryEngine 3 is whats responsible for the revamp, the same engine used in the making of the sequel.
When we first brought you the news confirming the price and the date of the game it appeared as though we weren’t to see any multiplayer mode. Though the price for the game seems fairly reasonable, the fact that there is no online play makes it more like you’re paying for what you get, which is essentially a campaign.
Check out the trailer below and see for yourself just how stunning the game is. Does the lack of multiplayer put you off? Will you be getting Crysis regardless?
