Crysis Preview  by James W at 15:01

IGN have taken a close up look at Crysis at an EA pre-E3 event. More screenshots and a video interview are included.

We knew that Crytek would pull some serious technological magic for their second title and we finally had the chance to see it moving not long after the big announcement. This year's GDC proved Crytek's stomping ground as they unleashed one of the most unbelievable technical demos of the year. CryEngine 2 is spectacular.

The scene on deck was pretty cool. Fires were raging and smoke was pouring out of the ship and into the air. When the Hunter pronounced its presence with that mighty scream, the battle was on. While we're on the subject, this is one of the areas presented to show the difference between DirectX 9 and 10 in the earlier video presentation. In the DX9 version, the Hunter comes out, screams, looks scary, and then that's about it. In the DX10 version, the Hunter comes out and its scream causes all of the fire and smoke in front of it to react. Both blow away from the monster creating with a detail, a much more immersive experience.

Thanks ShackNews

Even thought I probably won't have DX10 hardware/software to run this game I'm still gonna be all over it. It looks spectacular. Let's hope it plays spectacular, too.

My x850 is hanging in there for most games, having bought a 360 I'm reluctant to upgrade my PC unnessasarily but by the time games like Crysis and UT3-based come out I think a dx10 card could be due.
