    EA just sent out the first screenshots of Crytek's humdinger sequel Crysis 2, which seems like it may be getting closer to a full unveiling with E3 fast approaching. 
     
    In lieu of any faux-witty commentary, why don't we skip straight to the whaddayathink? (Full, giant-size originals located here.)

    I can run crysis 2 at 2560x1600 max settings with x16q AA and high shadows, but this game runs so bad on my laptop why?

    Yep, that's Crysis... and running on a seriously high-end PC too, I'm sure. 
     
    More importantly, though, what will this look like on a 360 or PS3?  I loved Far Cry and Crysis, but I'm done with PC at this point.

    Yeah, that's what they say, and I'm willing to believe it.  To be perfectly honest, these don't lo a whole lot better than the first Crysis does.  A definite improvement, but not an unrealistic one.

    I'm dubious. They're not really screenshots because Crysis is an FPS. Even if they were made in-engine, it isn't hard to make one frame look that good. I'll wait until we have video, ta.

    Hmm... Looks pretty sweet. However these screen-shots are not AMAZING in my opinion.
     
    I think it may be the shading and some small details on the sides. Other than that it looks good.

    Well those shots have a ridiculously high level of AA so yes while it is possible for the game to look that good, it will probably run like shit even on the highest end systems available today. So while the assets are probably all from in-game, it won't look as sharp since you probably won't be able to run the game with 16xSSAA or whatever they used for those shots.

    Wait, will this run on an Xbox 360/Playstation 3?
    If not, why are they releasing a new Crysis? Didn't it have bad sales / high piracy ratio?

    These will be from some UBER rig they've got going.  If it's anything like the last one it will be badly optimised and run like crap. 
     
    Reckon you'll need at least couple of these new radeon cards to get this game running like that.
     
     Here's hoping I'm wrong...

    It's coming to all three platforms, but obviously the console versions won't look as good as the PC version.

    @NoXious: kind of...it's coming to all three but even a $2,000 rig will struggle with it if it's anything like the last one.  The console versions will be (I'd imagine) much less impressive.

    I too am pumped to see Crysis in a setting that looks vaguely non-island.  Let's be real, no one playing these games really cares a ton about the story.  If they can pull off a semi-believable transition to a city I think everyone would be on board.

     It will do given the improvements to CryEngine3. It will look very close to the baseline mid level seen on PC.

    I don't think it's quite as bad as people made it out to be.  Sure it takes a lot to max the settings and get 60fps, but we don't even get that on console games.  Many games barely hit 720p, if that, and 30 fps.  God of War 3, on the "True HD" (1080p) PS3 only runs at 720p itself. 
     
    A year or two ago I was playing Crysis on a mid-level GPU (ATI Radeon 4850) and got great performance at Medium settings, which still made it look better then a good 75% or more of the games out even today, imho.

    I don't think they really need a reason/transition at all.  The first game established they were a special unit and were dropping onto that island for that mission.  Having missions elsewhere in the world, even a desert, wouldn't really require a reason beyond "we have a crisis over here, your mission is to ... GO"

    I can't wait to hear the new techno-babble that will come with the release of this game.
     
    I wonder how many pixelflops Crysis 2 is capable of at one time? Aggroshading? Maybe some twizzlemapping?

    These screenies must''ve been exclusive to EDGE magazine, since they're well over a month old now. Looking good anyways.
