After redefining the FPS genre on PC, Crysis can now be downloaded on Xbox 360 and PlayStation ® 3 in an explosive new form. Remastered using Crytek's proprietary CryENGINE 3, Crysis for consoles features all-new effects, lighting, and other visual optimizations, whilst retaining the game-changing action that made the original such a hit.
Global tensions have reached boiling point as the US and North Korea square off in the South China Sea. At stake: a mysterious artifact uncovered by a team of US archeologists.
The North Korean government quickly seizes the area, prompting the US to dispatch an elite team of Special Forces operatives on a rescue mission. During the siege, the true nature of the artifact quickly emerges, pointing to the existence of an alien presence on Earth. And as everyone involved is about to discover, disturbing that alien presence was one of the worst mistakes in history.
The battle to save Earth begins as the aliens flash freeze the tropics into a ghostly-white frozen landscape.
As players take up arms against the aliens, they will be equipped with customizable weapons and state-of-the-art armor that allows them to adapt their tactics and abilities to a hostile, ever-changing environment and a mysterious enemy.
