Crysis Gets Official Release Date
Electronic Arts and Crytek announced an official release date for Crysis today. The FPS will be hitting retail stores in North America and Europe on November 16 exclusively for the PC. With DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 visuals, Crysis was recognized as one of the most anticipated PC games and first person shooters of 2007, recently winning Best PC game from the Game Critics Awards: Best of E3 2007.
â€œCrytek is constantly striving to push the boundaries of both game design and technology, while maintaining quality at the highest bar,â€ said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. â€œWeâ€™re thankful to our fans for their support and patience, and weâ€™re excited to bring them Crysis this year. Itâ€™s going to be worth the wait.â€
Featuring open-ended gameplay, Crysis will give gamers tons of freedom which Crytek brags as giving gamers an unlimited and unparalleled experience. Players will be outfitted with a Nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customizable weapons, giving them a wide array of options not only in approaching the entire game, but every single objective or individual encounter.
Crysis also promises to break new ground in multiplayer with the introduction of PowerStruggle â€“ a team-based strategic mode for up to 32 players, where opposing sides battle for control of advanced weaponry and vehicles to overcome their enemies. Also, for those who prefer more “pulse-pounding action”, Crysis will also feature Instant Action mode, with the Nanosuit serving as a way to outwit your opponents.
