GDC 2011 update: Crysis 2 Delivers on Passive 3D

GDC11: Crysis 2 passive 3d engine rocks

| Gaming News | Posted: Mar 3, 2011 11:07 pm

Quite a short story, but we'll update it as we get more information.

 

At the GDC 2011 this afternoon here in San Francisco, Crytek and EA let event-goers test their upcoming FPS Blockbuster, Crysis 2, out March 22nd.

According to sources at the conference, the passive 3d graphics engine is otherworldly. The game uses polarized glasses to access the 3D content, so-called "passive" because they need no outside power source.

 

After demoing the game on the giant screen available, San Francisco tech employee Brendan Scully was blown away. "Coolest thing I've ever seen- Doesn't hurt your eyes. The new 3d engine actually f***ing works! It's incredible."

 

If you weren't excited enough for this ballsy cross-platform FPS, then...become more excited.

 

Here's the trailer, if you want to re-amp:
