Crytek slates Silent Space for PS2.
Crytek, a German third party developer, recently confirmed intentions to release multiple titles on next-generation platforms. The company is currently in negotiations with sundry publishers. Crytek hopes to slate Engalus, a first-person action-adventure, and X-Isle, a first-person shooter, for multiple consoles. PSX Extreme has also learned that Crytek Studios hopes to develop a sci-fi strategy game entitled Silent Space for the PlayStation 2 and Microsoft's Xbox. "The game is planned for the major platforms: the PC, the PS2, and the Xbox," explained Crytek president Faruk Yerli. "Currently we are in negotiation with some publishers. We know that the game would be fantastic, but you surely know that without funding no game could be finished. We believe that Silent Space could break the limits of other space games, and we will soon announce the future of all of our projects."
While information on the specifics of Silent Space's gameplay are sparse, Crytek has revealed the skeleton of the title. According to the company, the game will boast a battle system rich in strategy. Additionally, Silent Space will feature advanced AI capable of adapting to a human player's behavior. Also, a thorough campaign play mode is to be included in the title.
