EA has announced at E3 that Crysis 2 will also be available in true stereoscopic 3D on PS3. The blockbuster action game will be the first major video game on multiple platforms to take full advantage of 3D. Crytek is recognized worldwide for being technical pioneers, as showcased in the universally-acclaimed Far Cry and Crysis games.
“The 3D experience represents a quantum leap in interactive entertainment. With all of the same story and action seen in the 2D version of the game, the 3D version adds another dimension of intensity and immersion to the action,” said Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek.
Whether played in 3D or standard 2D, Crysis 2 drops players into a devastated New York in the midst of an attack by a frightening alien species. The alien enemies are armed with deadly weaponry and exceptional sensory abilities that test players’ skill and push them to the limit. These terrifying invaders stalk the streets of New York, leaving the streets in chaos and the skyline in flaming ruin. Surrounded by catastrophic destruction, players harness the superhuman abilities of the Nanosuit to level the playing field, becoming the ultimate weapon on a mission to save New York.
In 2D alone Crysis 2 looks set to be one of the best games of the year, and now that it will also be available in 3D means this is definitely going to be a game we all need to own. I’ve already started saving up for a 3DTV. Bring on the 3D revolution! Crysis 2 is scheduled for release in Fall 2010.
