Crysis 3 will push PC gamers' rigs in much the same way as the first game in the series, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli has revealed.
Crysis is infamous for being one of the most demanding PC games ever at launch, with PC spec requirements becoming a barrier to entry for many - so much so that it became something of a running joke in comunity circles.
“That joke will be resurrected again with Crysis 3, I’m quite sure about that,” Yerli said during an EA livestream. “There are brutal expectations around the PC version of Crysis 3. So this time we promise to melt down PCs.”
Crytek recently revealed a video showing how Crysis 3 will push the CryEngine to even more visually-impressive heights.
Yerli reiterated that the PC version of Crysis 3 will "look fantastic" despite the compromises inherent in simultaneously developing the game for PS3 and Xbox 360.
Crysis 3 launches in February next year.
