That’s James Cameron’s Avatar the movie in case you were wondering, not the game, which was mediocre at best. The comparison is, naturally, being made by Crytek’s president and creative director Cevat Yerli (man, I thought my name was crazy). The 3D functionality in Crysis 2 is a big part of what Crytek has been focusing on during development, and when people think 3D, many of them think of Cameron’s sci-fi hit Avatar.
Fortunately Yerli has something to back up that comparison: James Cameron has seen Crysis 2 running in 3D, and was totally impressed with what he saw. Seeing as how Cameron is currently one of the creative authorities in 3D entertainment, this is quite a feather in Crytek’s cap.
When interviewed by Edge magazine, Yerli claimed that Crysis 2 is â€œthe same as Avatar’s status in 3Dâ€. This comment was obviously spurred on by Cameron’s support of Crytek’s new baby. â€œJames Cameron has seen Crysis 2, and he loved what he saw because his eyes are trained for 3D more than anyone else’s, and that makes me confident that we have a super-high-end 3D experience on all formatsâ€.
If you are one of the five people in South Africa able to afford a 3D gaming setup, then it sounds as if you’ve got something to look forward to when Crysis 2 hits our shores on 24 March 2011.
Oh! And here’s the latest trailer for Crysis 2.
