The old joke about “Yes, but will it run Crysis?” seems set to rear its head again with the addition of a “3″: Crytek’s boss Cevat Yerli has been talking to VentureBeat about how he intends for nothing to beat the game for at least two years.
“Crysis 3 on PC is going to be a benchmark experience for at least two years. When I see what’s happening on the PC market, and even what we do. The PC market is not going to grow vastly more before a lot of games catch up.”
“We had the same thing with the first Crysis on PC. When Crysis launched, it was the high-end benchmark for a good three years. I think Crysis 3 is going to do that again.”
Having played in the Alpha recently, the game was certainly impressive — although some optimisation remains. Is your system up to scratch?
