Electronic Arts and Crytek have announced that the original Crysis is now available for download on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. The game costs 1600 Microsoft Points from Games on Demand, while the PS3 version can be purchased on PSN for £15.99 ($19.99 USD).
“We’re really excited to bring the legendary Crysis to gamers who weren’t able to experience it the first time around,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “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.”
Crysis was originally released on PC in 2007, with maximum graphic settings that brought even the highest-end computers to their knees.
