  • Crytek: Crysis 3 may have limited graphics options

    In a recent interview to PC Gamers, Crytek Senior Creative Director Rasmus Hojengaard confirmed that second installment in Crysis franchise, Crysis 2 was made keeping casual gamers in mind so that they all could lean back and see the whole thing unravel in front of their eyes.

    Crysis 3"We want to do everything we can to make sure that we leverage the strengths of having the player control everything and do the actual stuff themselves, and also leverage the fact that sometimes it’s nice to just be able to actually see what’s going on, because you don’t have to sit and concentrate on doing five skill-based things at the same time as watching two buildings collapse. Because you’ll either screw up the skills or you won’t really get the full visual, overwhelming, epic experience."

    Rasmus Hojengaard further hinted that the third installment in Crysis franchise, Crysis 3 may not feature advance graphics option. According to Hojengaard it make sense to have graphics adjustable, and it also make sense to put sliders and more options into the frontend so that gamers have all the option to adjust it directly.

    But Hojengaard further added, "But I can’t say exactly what we’re going to do. We don’t know yet."

    Crysis 3 is schedule to launch in 2013 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. Would you like to see advance graphics option in Crysis 3?, let us know your views in the comment section below.

  • Crytek: Crysis 2 with DirectX 11 support is first "next generation game"

    According to Jones, Director of Global Business Development for CryEngine, Crysis 2 with DirectX 11 support is the very "First Next-Gen Game".

    He further added that DirectX 11 is the key and very important component to he next generation graphical effects, although most of its features have been utilised only in tech demos.

    Jones said, "We’ve not seen them in-game yet – I think the first game where you’ll see the next-generation capability will be Crysis 2, because all the high-end stuff from other guys has only really been in tech demos,"

    Jones further explained that DirectX 11 provides numerous visual improvements and enhancements, but this time Crytek is going a step further with the latest patch.

    "There are a couple of things we’ve invented which are unique to Crysis 2 and CryEngine,

    "There are things that everbody does, like tessellation for example. There are features that we’ve been thankfully able to bring back, that were not friendly to consoles. So we’ve been able to put those back in for the high-end. And a couple of surprises that people won’t have seen anywhere else."

    When Jones was asked whether Crysis 2 with DirectX 11 patch give players a glimpse of next generation game?, he replied, "We would hope so."
