Resume hints that Crytek’s Ryse could contain multiplayer

Wednesday, 27th June 2012 18:55 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

A resume belonging to a lead programmer at Ruffian Games suggests the studio has been contracted out for work on “a multiplayer map for a first person, melee combat game based on the CryEngine” for Xbox 360.

According to Superannuation, who found the CV online, the game is described as “a first party CryTek project which [Ruffian] were contracted onto,” and the team’s task was to work on “melee combat [with] AI capable of evaluating dynamic combat situations and working as part of a team.”

The resume also mentions an “unannounced third party project using CryEngine 3″ which “makes extensive use of the Xbox Live server platform and Kinect.”

Super believes these two descriptions point to a future announcement of multiplayer for Crytek’s Kinect-based title Ryse, despite the linear single-player nature of what has been shown so far.

Neither Microsoft nor Crytek have said the game will be exclusively single-player, so it’s quite possible a multiplayer announcement is coming in the not so distant future.

Still, take this as a rumor until more is revealed by the developer and publisher.

    Annette Scherer.ā€ Heavens! what a violent outburst!ā€ the prince responded, not in the least disconcerted at such a reception. He was wearing an embroidered court uniform, stockings burberry accessories and slippers, and had stars on his breast, and a bright smile on his flat face. He spoke in that elaborately choice French, in which our forefathers not only spoke but thought, and with those slow, patronising burberry bags intonations peculiar to a man of importance who has grown old in court society. He went up to Anna Pavlovna, kissed her hand, presenting her with a view of his perfumed, shining bald head, and burberry outlet online sale complacently settled himself on the sofa.CF
