Crytek: PC gamers want “Crysis only on PC”
Confirms PC version of Crysis 3 will get the exclusive visual goodies.
So PC gamers didn’t want the Crysis IP to mangle the console property; it is somewhat the truth that no one argues about. Crytek’s Rasmus Højengaard pointed the obvious about PC players not wanting the Nanosuit shooter to be on consoles, saying that Crytek understands why.
“PC players, fundamentally only want Crysis to be on PC, right? And, you know, that’s kind of understandable when you consider how the original game – and even Crytek itself – started out,” he told Spong.
“But, we’re definitely pushing this game a lot from a visual standpoint, and for sure there’s going to be visual goodies in it that you can only get if you have a super-high-end PC.
“At the same time, we want to ensure if you don’t have a super-high-end PC, the game will still look amazing. On top of that, we want to make sure the experience is not different from platform to platform.”
While he didn’t mention what kind of exclusive bells and whistles PC people can look forward to in Crysis 3, using the term “super-high-end PC”, twice, made me think how far Crytek wants to graphically push their CryEngine 3-powered shooter. But it’s about the gameplay, too. Right?
