E3 2010: Crysis 2 goes 3D

EA is set to confirm that upcoming console and PC shooter Crysis 2 will support stereoscopic 3D.

USA Today reports the game will be playable in 3D not just on PS3 and PC, but also on Xbox 360, suggesting that Microsoft could include some big 3D news in its press conference later tonight.

The success of 3D movies like Avatar and the introduction of 3D TVs from the hardware manufacturers tells us that this is the next big movement in entertainment, much like HD was years ago,” Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli stated.

For games especially, 3D gives gamers an increased level of immersion, which can enhance an intense experience like Crysis 2.”

The site adds that both the 3D and non-3D versions of the game will include exactly the same content, and that even the multiplayer modes will support 3D visuals.

Crysis 2 joins the likes of Killzone 3 (and, we think, Gran Turismo 5) in pushing new 3D visual technology to the core games market.
