Crysis Xbox Live, PlayStation Network Facing Crysis

The rumors are true: Electronic Arts and Crytek have just announced that the original Crysis, recreated and enhanced by the developer’s latest CryENGINE 3 technology, will be coming to current generation consoles this October.

In Crysis, gamers will travel to 2019 where a team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. Now with hope rapidly fading, the US and North Koreans must join forces to battle the alien menace, fighting epic battles through stunning, photorealistic tropical jungles and frozen landscapes.

Coming four years after its original release on the PC, the console version of Crysis will eschew a regular retail release and be available exclusively through Xbox Live for 1600 points, or via PSN for $19.99.  Keep checking back for screenshots and video of the remastered console version as soon as they become available.
