Crysis 3 PC system requirements confirmed

Crysis 3 PC system requirements confirmed

PCnauts have become pretty complacent about system requirements of multiplatform games, knowing even a modest gaming PC is faster than the consoles so they should be fine. Crysis 3 is a little less forgiving. The system requirements are confirmed, so you may want to start eying an upgrade if you fancy playing Crytek's super-suit shooter with all the bells and whistles on.

Crysis 3 trailer shows off alien tech, tunnel warfare

Crysis 3 trailer shows off alien tech, tunnel warfare

The urban rainforest of New York City is the playground for Crysis 3, unless you are the CELL troopers trying to stay alive as Prophet silently picks them off with his bow from stealth in his nanosuit. A new trailer shows off single-player action in a new area of the Liberty Dome, called The Fields.

The trailer shows Prophet and "Psycho" Sykes searching for alien weapons in a not-so abandoned transit yard. Lots of firefights and explosions ensue, with the guys from CELL not coming out on the positive side.

Why the next Crysis won't be called 'Crysis 4'

Crysis 3 is helping the "games with bows" initiative that's rocking the country, but Crytek doesn't plan to stop there. The company is already planning for the future of the franchise, and the next game won't be "Crysis 4" in name or spirit.

Crysis 2 gets better HD textures with MaLDoHD mod

Crysis 2 gets better HD textures with MaLDoHD mod

Crysis 2 should have melted off the faces of PC gamers everywhere. Instead, our faces were left intact. Crytek acknowledged the shortcomings of the game's original release and subsequently released an "Ultra Upgrade," which added fancy DX11 effects. An additional High-Res Texture Pack sharped the overall look of the game.

But for some, Crysis 2 was still not as blisteringly beautiful as it should be. That's where the MaLDoHD mod comes in.

Crysis 3 interactive video offers play-style choice

Prophet returns in Crysis 3 to take on the Cell Corporation, but developer Crytek is leaving it up to the player on how to accomplish that--either through tactical, quiet-as-a-church-mouse stealth or guns blazing, in-your-face action. Electronic Arts has released a new interactive trailer to prove the point.

Free-to-play TimeSplitters envisioned by Crytek CEO

Free-to-play TimeSplitters envisioned by Crytek CEO

Crysis 3 will be developer Crytek's final retail boxed product. Why? Because the company is becoming entirely focused on free-to-play games.

Warface is the developer's next major FPS title, and it will be free-to-play. However, CEO Cevat Yerli has since noted the possibility of a new TimeSplitters game as a free-to-play title, too. "I love TimeSplitters, I'm a huge TimeSplitters fan particularly of the multiplayer part. I love the idea, I love the brand, I love everything – but the publishers don't. That's reality," Yerli said.
