Crysis 2's 3D is ''the Same as Avatar''

Crytek CEO and Creative Director Cevat Yerli bragged about Crysis 2's 3D component in a recent interview with Edge Magazine (E224), comparing the game with James Cameron's Avatar. In fact, he claimed that the famed director actually saw Crysis 2's 3D component in action and was impressed.

"There was one project we developed exclusively in stereoscopic 3D--and we started that two-and-a-half years ago," Yerli told the magazine. "It was designed to be only possible in 3D, so we asked what it'd take to make that. So we've done a lot of research into 3D experiences, the UI and whatnot. And a lot of this knowledge is now in the Crysis 2 3D experience. That's why we have, in my opinion, a benchmark 3D implementation."

He then goes on to throw in the Avatar comparison. "I'll even claim it's the same as Avatar's status in 3D," he said. "James Cameron has seen Crysis 2, and he loved what he saw because his eyes are trained for 3D more than anyone else, and that makes me confident that we have a super-high-end 3D experience on all formats."

The magazine then asked Yerli what led Cameron to see Crysis 2 in the first place. He laughed. "That's another story!"

E224 is slated to hit newsstands on January 18, however subscribers should see the magazine in their mailboxes any day now. Crysis 2 is still dated for a March 22 release for Microsoft Windows, the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3.

    Sounds like the next big benchmark in video game graphics. And a darn pretty one. Can't wait to see this.

    I've been seeing things in 3D my whole life, I guess my eyes must be just as well trained as Cameron's

    Won't be playing this in 3D , very high gfx settings in 2D will be enough for me.
    I hope they include the editor like they did with crysis 1 :)

    So the new gag at Toms should be "Can it play Crysis 2 IN 3D?"

    Unfortunately, the whole 3D experience won't really take off for another few years.

    What video card is needed to run Crysis 2 in 3D Stereo? 2xGTX570 in SLI?
