EA AND CRYTEK DELIVER CRYSIS TO CONSOLES TODAY

Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) and award-winning developer Crytek GmbH, announced today that the critically-acclaimed, single-player campaign from the PC hit Crysis® is now available on PlayStation® Network and Xbox LIVE® Games on Demand for $19.99 SRP or 1600 Microsoft Points. Gamers can now play with improved Nanosuit gamepad controls as they take full advantage of CryENGINE 3®’s visual optimizations in this robust and thrilling downloadable version of Crysis for consoles. Shooter fans will also be able to experience the modified and enhanced original Crysis on console with fine-tuned combat along with full stereoscopic 3D support.

“We’re really excited to bring the legendary Crysis to gamers who weren’t able to experience it the first time around,” said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. “The CryENGINE 3 has allowed us to remaster the single player campaign and make significant advancements to the gameplay. We’ve added a new lighting system, some advanced rendering techniques and most of all, we’ve optimized the Nanosuit controls to utilize its full potential on a gamepad. We really hope that gamers will enjoy playing the game as much as we’ve enjoyed developing it.”

In 2007, critics around the world hailed Crysis as the PC game that ushered in the next-generation of gaming with jaw-dropping visuals, industry leading technology and groundbreaking sandbox gameplay, featuring the super-powerful Nanosuit. Today, gamers will have the chance to utilize the Nanosuit as they fast forward to 2019 where a team of US scientists makes a frightening discovery on an island in the South China Sea. All contact with the team is lost when the North Korean Government quickly seals off the area. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation. As tension rises between the two nations, a massive alien ship reveals itself in the middle of the island. Now with hope rapidly fading, the US and North Koreans must join forces to battle the alien menace, fighting epic battles through stunning, photorealistic tropical jungles and frozen landscapes.
