It has been a few weeks after the Electronic Arts formally announced the introduction of Crysis to the Xbox 360 and PS3. The former PC-exclusive, superbly popular sci-fi first person shooter was being prepared for distribution through PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade with a projected window in October. Earlier, EA has revealed the exact Crysis console release date and surprisingly, it will launch sooner rather than later.
Crysis will be coming to consoles as early as next week, on October 4. A date that comes quite surprising when release dates are normally announced months before the launch, EA announced the release in just a few days. Furthermore, as what was already known, Crysis will cost Xbox gamers 1,600 MS points and $20 dollars for the PlayStation fans.
When it lands on consoles, the game will only feature the original single-player campaign, though game developers Crytek has long informed the public that the campaign was being “remastered” for the upcoming console release. It is said to boast optimized consoles, lighting effects, and stereoscopic 3D for both Xbox 360 and PS3. However, the storyline remains the same what the original pc-exclusive game had. Players will join an elite team of futuristic soldiers in a setting based on the near future as the tension arises between North Korea and US. Players will then be sent to futuristic action scenes against North Korean forces, as the situation will then get more complicated with the arrival of alien forces. Simply put – Its the typical video game storyline.
