The demo of one of the most hyped up games of late, Crysis will be available in just a few hours. The demo will be made available Sataday – in the UK which is 12 hours behind us at the moment. I presume the website is set on a timer similar to NZGamers own articles and the demo will go live at midday (New Zealand time) on the dot.
• PC gamers will soon be able to play the most advanced video game ever created. The Crysis demo—available tomorrow from nZone.com—includes the complete first level of the game, representing about 45 minutes of gameplay.
• Crysis was developed on NVIDIA GeForce 8 Series graphics processors. NVIDIA programmers spent more than 5,000 engineering hours helping Crytek add the latest graphics technology to the game.
• Crysis features Extreme High Definition (XHD) support with up to 2560x1600 resolution—roughly twice the resolution of next-generation video-game consoles.
• The demo will be available Saturday, October 27th from nZone.com. Link: http://uk.nzone.com/object/nzone_crysis_downloads_uk.html. The final version of the game is scheduled for release in North America and Europe on November 16th, 2007.
Quote by Roy Taylor, vice president of content for NVIDIA:
“Crysis is without a doubt the world’s most advanced game and the most important game to come out since Half Life. We applaud our friends at Crytek and EA for their spectacular achievement. There’s never been a game that looked this good and delivered such an immersive gaming experience. The only question is: Are you ready?”
Quote by Cevat Yerli, Crytek CEO:
“Originally we set two extreme and mutually exclusive goals: 1) pushing the boundaries of interactivity and non-linearity, and 2) achieving a realistic experience where you forget you’re playing a game. With the deep technical expertise of NVIDIA’s world-class support team, we achieved these two seemingly impossible goals, defining the heart of Crysis. We developed Crysis on NVIDIA graphics processors and we recommend GeForce 8800 graphics cards for the best experience.”
