Crysis makes the move from screen to table with the upcoming Crysis Board game
You’ve witnessed a world at war through the eyes of Nomad, Psycho, Alcatraz and Prophet, but now, thanks to a team of game design students from Düsseldorf, players will soon be able to experience Crysis from a whole new perspective.
Bringing the unique elements of the Crysis Universe to the table in form of a board, Crysis Analogue Edition will give players the chance to harness the transforming power of the Nanosuit and wield the weapons of warfare by rolling the dice and playing their cards right.
The game is designed around the fantastic multiplayer matches that all Crysis fans will be familiar with. It has been a work in progress for over two years and isn’t far from release. The team behind the game are artist and lead game designer Sebastian Kreutz, 3D artist and game designer Dominik Lau, game designer Robin Schäfer, and game and level designer Marcel Krafczyk.
It came into being when a team of students at Düsseldorf’s Media Design University of Applied Sciences were tasked with creating a board game based on an existing video game. As fans of both the Crysis series and Crytek, the four-man team found it easy to make their selection. They have been in regular contact with Crytek and they even attended Gamescom to show off their work to gamers. It looks great and is getting some really positive feedback from those who got to try it out.
We are very excited about the game here at Xboxer and will let you know more information about a release date when we get it.
