Playing Crysis Away from Home Requires an Internet Connection

Posted on October 5, 2011 AT 08:42am

THE BUZZ: If you are one of those people who like to download a game on one Xbox 360 and then play it on a friend’s, be very careful with Crysis.

It would appear that if you try and play the game on a different Xbox to the one you downloaded it on, you will require an Xbox Live connection. The game won’t let you play offline, and if you lose your connection a 10 minute count down timer begins. If you do not regain your connection you will be kicked back to the dashboard.

EGM’s TAKE: This is easy enough to avoid. Just make sure you are connected to Xbox Live the entire time you are playing the game.
