I can already see the "but can it run Crysis?" memes. Crysis Remastered was made official official by Crytek on twitter and the trailer for the Crysis Remastered as well as it's the website. The remaster is scheduled to launch this summer.
Crysis Remastered is an updated version of the first-person shooter Crysis by Crytek. It has been confirmed that Crysis Remastered is coming not only to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, but also the Nintendo Switch.
“We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles — even Nintendo Switch! — so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit.” Crysis Remastered was made official official by Crytek and the trailer for the Crysis Remastered as well as it's the website.
Crysis was originally released in 2007 as a PC exclusive. The story starred Jake “Nomad” Dunn on a simple rescue mission in the North Korean island chain which devolves into a battle against extraterrestrial invaders. Nomad is armed with the-state-of-the-art Nanosuit that gives him a host of abilities, such as super-strength, super-speed, extra durable armor, and invisible cloaking.
“Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable, Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.” reads the blog post published on Thursday by Crytek.
No official release date has been given and Crytek has only stated the game will be “coming soon.” Though there is speculation it will release in August 2020 as that is when the events of the original game take place.
