No doubt Crysis is definitely the killer app for PC gamers looking to upgrade their systems and so far news coming from people who are playing the multiplayer beta is that it will be worth it. And remember, the minimum specs are the bare “minimum” one will require to play the game and that means all the settings will have to be toned down and you will not be able to enjoy the game the way it is meant to be. So I would advise anyone upgrading their computers go for the recommended requirements or at least get as close to it as possible.
Crysis is set to be released on November 16th, 2007 worldwide and the demo is expected as soon as October 26th.
