I think it is safe to say that Crytek is a crazy-insane developer. Every time they release a new game it becomes the benchmark to test your PC, even three years after its release it is hard to find middle of the road hardware that can run Crysis maxed out. Crysis 2 on the other hand is going to be released on consoles and PC. This makes it possible for many gamers out there (including myself) to play a Crytek game the way it is meant to be played.
Sten Huebler, lead designer of Crysis 2, took some time to talk to me about hardware specs and settings. He also addresses the multiplayer mode, which is playable for the first time here on the show floor at gamescom.
