    Crytek announces Crysis Remastered | Crytek

    Thursday, April 16, 2020 — The classic first person shooter is back with the action-packed gameplay, sandbox world, and thrilling epic battles players loved the first time around – with remastered graphics and optimizations for a new generation of hardware co-developed on CRYENGINE with Saber Interactive. Starting this summer, Crysis Remastered will be available for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and for Nintendo Switch.

    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.

    “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.”

    In Crysis 1, what begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war as alien invaders swarm over a North Korean island chain. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, players can become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost strength to lay waste to vehicles. The Nanosuit’s speed, strength, armor, and cloaking allow creative solutions for every kind of fight, while a huge arsenal of modular weaponry provides unprecedented control over play style. In the ever-changing environment, adapt tactics and gear to dominate your enemies, in an enormous sandbox world.

    But can it run Crysis Remastered? | Guru3D

    I very seldom get super-excited about games, but there are rare exceptions. Crysis is my favorite game franchise, and the original that started it all is the title I have enjoyed playing more than any other. I love what they did with Quake2, (also among my all-time favorites,) so this should be awesome.

    This was originally rumored sometime back around May of last year, but it's official now.

    I'm looking forward to this. I remember buying an 8800GTX 768MB to run the first one maxed out in 2007!

    I really like it when games are released that are so graphically demanding that hardware upgrades are required to get the best from them. Titles like that are literally game changers (pun intended). They are a gift that keeps on giving, like a benchmark that runs for hours and never gets boring.

    It would be extra awesome to have this as a harbinger of a Crysis 4 release later in the year.
