This morning when the trailer was released, there was no concrete word from Crytek as to if the game would be released at retail, or by download.
This afternoon, Crytek has revealed that the game will be available to download from Xbox LIVE Marketplace, and will cost 1600 MSP.
Crytek CEO, Cevat Yerli has this to add:
We are extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish with Crysis. We set out to create a next-generation FPS and delivered a PC experience that became a benchmark for quality- and still is for many gamers even four years later.
By bringing the single-player campaign to console, we believe we are again setting a new standard for quality in downloadable gaming.
From the comments above, it would appear that the port will not feature multi-player, but this is yet to be confirmed.Original Story:
Back in July, we reported
that the original Crysis
, the prequel to Crysis 2
released in 2007, was rumoured to be coming to consoles.
Eagle eyed members of the MyCrysis forums had discovered listings on the Korean GRB (Game Rating Board) and ESRB websites, listing the game as not only PC, but also Xbox 360 and PS3 as well. No official announcement was made at the time by Crytek, and quite quickly the rumours died down and were forgotten about.
That is until today, however, when the official announcement was made via an exclusive trailer on Gametrailers.com. The trailer not only confirms that Crysis
will be heading to the Xbox 360, but it will be coming as soon as October, and has been remastered with all new lighting and effects.
No word has been officially revealed as to whether the game will be coming to retail or be available to download via Xbox Live Marketplace. As soon as we hear more specifics, we will let you know.
