Exciting news for some, but utterly yawn-inducing for others, Crytek has today revealed that its flagship first person shooter, Crysis, will be playable in stereoscopic 3D.

USA Today confirmed the news that the single player and multiplayer component of the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game will be supported by 3D.

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

Those who haven't got a 3D compatible TV yet, which will be most people on the planet, should have no reason to feel jealous. Both the 2D and 3D versions will ship with exactly the same content.

A beta phase for Crysis 2 is set to go ahead later this year.

Im part of the ‘utterly yawn-inducing’ club.
I really like the Crytek engine but havnt seen it feature in any decent games yet. Im not into MMO's and FarCry & Crysis were just showcases. This 3D element again takes the focus away from gameplay and I fear what has happened in the majority of 3D films, if it isnt in 3D its such a dull film that just isnt worth watching, the same will happen in 3D games.

I'll still buy it to see how far the engine has moved on. I can only hope the game will be worth completing this time. Its a shame they lost the FarCry franchise as I thought it was miles better than Crysis. FarCry 2 was an insult to the first.
