CryTek, makers of the Far Cry, will launch Crysis this fall 2006 in US. Using new CryENGINE 2 technology, Crysis is also one of the first announced games to run on the advanced DirectX 10 architecture. This game is about the invasion of alien to our Earth which is set in the year 2019 after a colossal asteroid crashes to Earth. Crysis begins amidst a tense military standoff between the North Korean and United States governments for control of the impact zone. And then, the asteroid suddenly bursts open revealing a massive alien ship, which begins freezing vast portions of the island and disturbing the global weather system. The invasion of Earth has begun. Crysis features an epic three-act story of alien invasion where players are able to customize their armor and weapons in real time to confront an ever-changing enemy and a dynamic environment. Crysis is a high quality graphics game so it requires a powerful machine. This is the minimum requirements for Crysis; CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8GHz; Graphics: NVIDIA 6600/X800GTO (SM 2.0); RAM: 768MB/1GB; HDD: 6GB; Internet: 256k+; Optical Drive: DVD; Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP.
