'Crysis' Developer Believes Gamers Have Had Enough Time To Update PCs


Posted September 11, 2008 - By bleahy

Bernd Diemer, a producer on Crysis and Crysis Warhead, believes that in the 10 months since the release of Crysis, PC hardware has reached a point where most people should be able to run the game.

Speaking with the LA Times, he acknowledged that Crysis was built with future-proofing in mind. This is a game that will keep looking better as the hardware improves, but it has been a problem for gamers that want to play it today. Gamers wishing to play Crysis have had to buy new computers or upgrade their existing rigs.

"We tried to make Crysis future-proof," Diemer said. "What we did this time [with Warhead] was focus a lot more on the middle range. That was our target group." Hopefully this means a lot of optimization that will allow the game to run nicely on an actual mid-range PC.

In a time when a next-gen console can be purchased for the same cost as some video cards, it's hard to justify spending the money to upgrade a PC. Crytek has constructed a "Crysis PC" that they guarantee will run the game for only $699.

So, reader, do you have a "Crysis PC" and if so, what are your specs?
