Crysis Assaults PSN Today with 3D Support, Watch the Launch Trailer

Alex Hood's Avatar + Posted by Alex Hood on Oct 04, 2011 // Senior Designer, Crytek UK

It is very exciting for me to be able to say that the original Crysis is coming to the PS3! Some of you may be wondering how we are going to bring the large open environments that Crysis is known for to console. The expansive jungle sections, the pure white sand beaches, the open vehicle levels… maybe you’re shaking your head that it cannot be done. I’m here to tell you that we’ve accomplished this and you will be able to experience the remastered, single-player campaign for Crysis on October 4th in North America and October 5th in Europe.

So how did we do it? As Egg Shen said, it wasn’t easy! Without the power of the CryENGINE 3, we would never have attempted it, but with fully deferred lighting, a PS3-specific rendering pipeline and SPU-enhanced physics code, together with more efficient memory layouts and more intelligent algorithms, we brought the experience of Crysis to consoles without compromise.

Crysis for PS3 (PSN)

With that said, we didn’t just want to port the game straight onto console; we wanted to make sure we tailored the experience to suit it. We’ve brought the Crysis 2 Nanosuit and controls into the console version of Crysis and we have greatly improved the ease with which players can perform their Nanosuit powered exploits. The Nanosuit gives players options on how they want to play Crysis – from stalking your prey like a stealth predator, to hurling yourself into battle like the Hulk – with the intuitive Crysis 2 controls, nothing gets between the player and the impressive action. We’ve also rebalanced all the combat and weapons to suit the DualShock 3 controller and made improvements to the AI. Also, if you have a 3D capable TV, you can immerse yourself in the beautiful Crysis world with fully integrated stereoscopic 3D support!

For those of you who missed Crysis the first time around, this experience delivers intense, stealth-action and furious battles in large, open jungle environments with jeeps, tanks, boats, helicopters and intelligent AI. If that isn’t enough, you also take the fight to an unknown alien race and board their ships where the laws of physics no longer apply. When you finally emerge, a shocking surprise is awaiting as you discover that the world you once knew has undergone a dramatic alteration.

Crysis for PS3 (PSN)

Crysis comes to PS3 on October 4th in North America for $19.99. On behalf of everyone at Crytek, I really hope that you enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed developing it!

I will buy this at some point, but this is a terrible time to release a game, especially an older one remastered… I loved Crysis 2, though, so I’ll eventually get to it. Thanks for bringing it to PS3.

why haven’t you guys shown any ps3 footage but you did the 360 version. does our version suck or something seriously why didn’t you guys show any footage of the ps3 version?


24

+ LilWayneSuckz on October 4th, 2011 at 9:54 am said:

Why haven’t you shown any actual PS3 footage of the game?


25

+ chriz704 on October 4th, 2011 at 9:54 am said:

Chances are this game will never receive a discount for PS +, Do you think Crytek would allow such a thing? No. Sony has no say on third party tittles only their first party.

The trailer doesn’t actually show the Dualshock 3 layout and neither do the screenshots

@DeathGazer
Even Rage’s release date is not well timed, coming out the same day as Dark Souls! I might not get the time to buy Rage until next month!

+ jixiebean on October 4th, 2011 at 10:06 am said:

does anybody know what time it is coming out today? 10am pacific and still nothing on the store

Looks great, but I need to see the PS3 version in action first.

I played it on the PC, much much better than Crysis 2.

+ ZERO_169 on October 4th, 2011 at 10:34 am said:

I too am wondering how this will run on PS3 compared to the 360. I guess I will just have to wait a week or two to find out from the people who got it.

+ JLP_M on October 4th, 2011 at 10:40 am said:

Sucks there is no multiplayer, I def enjoyed Crysis’s multiplayer better than 2


33

+ SnDin9 on October 4th, 2011 at 10:43 am said:

Very cool, not bad for $20, assuming it can actually run smoothly on the PS3 without too many fps drops. I’m saving my money for AC:R and BF3, but maybe I’ll pick this up later, I have a co-worker who builds PCs and loves Crysis, he said it would never come to PS3 lol.

Don’t believe the hype. Crysis 2 was released not too long ago, it was plagued with bugs and Crytek did next to nothing to fix them, and now they released the first one with “ps3 optimization”? This game is a good one, but knowing crytek they probably dumbed it down in terms of open world and added a ton of bloom for graphical effect. Just look at the video, all the reviews were for the pc version, and that was 4 years ago lol. $20 bucks for old product…Crytek at its finest, final verdict…just wait it out.

And no discount for this game for PS+ members. No matter, I’m still getting this because I’ve been waiting since its announcement.

Crysis 2 was OK….but so restricted in terms of depth and playability. However – i remember the original crysis when i played it on my PC back in the day….and it BLOWS the lid off of crysis 2….!! Whether it’s dumbed down or not, at $20, it’s definitely worth it….!! Best single player experience….period. Buy it and see. My funds are ready….so c’mon SONY release the update already….!! i’m guessing file size is gonna be many GB’s so will take a while to download.

Thank you Crytek….!!

It’s 4.1GB on Xbox360, so should be about the same on PS3.

i have a hunch that microsoft paid last second to have exclusivity to this game for the month……that’s why it’s not on PSN yet

Will Crysis Warhead also make it’s way to consoles?
