Nexuiz Using CryENGINE 3 for Upcoming Console Port

Nexuiz, originally released on the PC, Mac, and Linux in 2005 using a heavily modified Quake engine, is in development for release on PSN and Xbox Live Arcade. The console versions of the FPS will use Crytek's CryENGINE 3 and will become the first PSN and XBLA release to utilize the new engine.

nope "Switching to CryENGINE 3 has helped us stay true to our vision and build the Nexuiz arenas the way we see it without any limitations," explains IllFonic president Charles Brungardt. "We are incredibly proud that Nexuiz will be the first downloadable title developed on CryENGINE 3."

Nexuiz will be on the floor at PAX Prime with CryENGINE 3 in full effect. Shacknews will be in attendance for some old-school fragging. The game is scheduled for release this winter.
