Crysis

01 May 2007

If you haven’t heard of Crysis you can’t be on planet Earth because Crysis will be one of the hottest titles to be released this year. Details of the spectacular in-game visuals have been circulating around the internet for a while now with the latest instalment from game developers Crytek recently updated on their website’s news section here: http://www.crytek.com/news/index.php.

Crysis is a sci-fi first person shooter. The game plot centres on Earth in the year 2019 when a colossal asteroid crashes onto the Earth’s surface. The North Korean government quickly seals off the island. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation and report back to the Pentagon. The asteroid suddenly bursts open, revealing a massive, 2km high alien ship. The ship generates an immense force sphere, freezing a vast portion of the island and drastically altering the global weather system. The invasion of Earth has begun.

The two rival nations unite to stop the aliens and save mankind. The newly formed alliance fights epic battles against the marauding Aliens. As the player, you must lead a crack militant squad through lush tropical jungle, harsh frozen landscapes, and finally into the heart of the alien ship itself for the ultimate Zero G encounter with the aliens. Cool, huh?

The official game website is here: http://www.crysis-game.com/. Crysis is scheduled for a Q3 2007 release date in NZ and we can’t wait for its arrival!
