Happy birthday Crysis!
Crytek has announced this week that it is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the groundbreaking original entry in the Crysis franchise. Gamers who been around since 2007 will likely recall fondly how fantastic the game looked compared to other titles on the market at the time and how Crysis would bring even high-end hardware to its knees with all the bells and whistles turned on.
It's hard to believe it has been five years since the original game launched, the fourth title in the series is set to launch in February of 2013. That game will be called Crysis 3. Crytek is celebrating the fifth birthday of the original game and the series by offering a free download copy of the original game with the pre-order of Crysis 3.
Crysis also became available as a digital download for the PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers this year. I recently played Crysis again, and even compared to many games on the market today, it still has very good graphics.
